The French Riviera conjures images of white-sand beaches and bright blue ocean waves, glamorous women in dark glasses and flowing white linen, and sleek yachts floating off the coast. This beautiful region has inspired artists like van Gogh and Matisse with its light and color, and captured the imagination of the literary idols who penned “The Great Gatsby” and “Lolita.” You’ll feel like a millionaire when you book one of the cheap flights to Nice’s Cote d’Azur (NCE). .
Hotels close to Cote d'Azur Airport are conveniently located near public transportation into the city, as well as trains to other parts of France and Europe. Nice flights arrive at one of two terminals in the airport, each with a taxi stand. Make sure you have local currency, as cabs may take cash payment only. For a cheaper option, catch the Airport Express bus into Gare de Nice-Ville, the main train station. To hook up with the local trolley, walk west along Avenue Thiers. The tram runs through the city along Avenue Jean Medecin. Take it south to Place Massena and stroll along the promenade, admiring the monuments and fountains. End at Place Garibaldi and check out the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art. Then head west to explore Castle Hill, with its waterfall and amazing views all the way to the island of Corsica (take the elevator if you’re tired!). Beach bums can beeline for Promenade des Anglais to get their tan on. .
