We had a good reason to visit Nice and Vence to celebrate my wife´s birthday. The weather can switch between rain and cold and sunny and blue skies and we experienced both.
Vence is a smaller city located on the hills north of Nice. Besides having very good friends living there it is a nice area including the nearby St Paul de Vence.
St Paul de Vence is also located on the hills north of Nice and is wellknown mainly for the art museum, Fondation Maeght and the arty small shops i the old picturesque center of the city.
Nice is the main attraction visited by a large amount of turists all through the year. We stayed close to Place Massena which is considered as the most central location. We walked the mandatory Promenade de Anglais and visited the flower market, the photo museum and the art museum. Being in France and specifically beeing close to the sea you need to visit a good seafood restaurant.
