Nice, France

A ticket to Nice means a holiday on the Côte d’Azur. The sky blue sea, waving palm trees and delicious food - the recipe for a wonderful time!

Fly to Nice and 2 hours later you are lying on the white sandy beaches of this lovely region in France. After a day of sunbathing, enjoy delicious Provençal dishes with an Italian twist. Try, for example, socca, a type of pancake made of chickpea flour and olive oil. And for a light meal during the hot summer days, there is the Salade Niçoise. It is the dish of Nice. Visit Vieux Nice, the old part of town, for culture. Wander for hours on end in the maze of small streets where modern art and historic buildings cross paths.
