Nice and Menton: 5 Tips for Your Amazing French Getaway

‘Ooh, la-la’

It’s time to get away again. Somewhere warm, am I right? The French Riviera is the perfect option if you want to mix beach and sun with wine and fine dining.

I flew in January, at the peak of Germany’s miserable winter and I was delighted to land and see the sun again, shining proudly at 17 degrees Celcius.

I wrote a Nice travel guide for you which is now on the TravelTop6 website. If you’re heading to the French Riviera, specifically Nice or Menton, then this guide will help to make your trip even more flawless!

One final tip: To make sure your trip ends with a bang, try to fly out of Nice before sunrise or sunset. Get a window seat and chances are you’ll fly over the French Alps and you might even be able to catch a glimpse of it.
