Lying on the Beach for the Whole Day in Nice
There is quite a few different beaches in Nice, but Plage de Carras is probably the most popular one since this rocky beachfront has the cleanest water ever; it's ideal for swimming, sunbathing and it's certainly for fun! The best thing to do in there is to lie on the beach for a proper sunbathing for the whole day until sunset. It's comfy, plus the view is gorgeous!

Looking for the Best Contemporary Art in MAMAC

This place isn't just made for art lovers; it's also a great place for relaxation. The view from its rooftop is picturesque and totally worth thousands of photos.
Appreciating the Details of the Basilica of Nice
Basilique Notre-Dame de Nice is a neo-Gothic church in a twin-towers style. Its vibrant and colourful stained glass on the window makes the basilica so much lively. It's not difficult to spot this church and you shall see it when you are in the city centre. We even loved it a lot more when the light's up in the evening. It's simply gorgeous!
