ProIt's a small thing to pay tribute

ConsIt can feel uncomfortable

Gruesome travel: it could catch on It is perhaps an inevitable outcome of regular travel; you eventually end up in a place where tragedy or history is in the making. In my time we have been in Madrid at the time of the funeral of the train bomb victims, in a tourist deserted Malaysia just after...

ConsPebbles, French men who think they are it

Nice or Nizza as the locals know it. You've probably seen photos etc. I stayed here for four months it must have been about five years ago as part of my studies for European Business Studies with the University of Hertfordshire. I lived in Nice for four months as a student, in Valence (next to...

For my first opinion on CIAO.UK, I am writing about my natural born town : Nice. Wherever weather is cloudy, rainy, windy and frozen, Nice is still sunny (more than 280 days per year) and warm in summer time (average temperature 26 - 30°) not cold in winter time (almost 12 - 20°). Last time I...

If you're looking for somewhere to relax and enjoy the sunshine, stroll the markets or just hang out in a café and eat baguettes, then Nice is as good a place as any. Located on the Cote D'Azur (or French Riviera), Nice is a refreshing change of pace if you've just come from Italy, Barcelona or...

ConsPebble beach and noisy scooters

Nice is a good sized city, apparently 5th largest in France, but to me it didn't feel much bigger than Bournemouth. It is certainly easily walkable if you stay somewhere central. We would not have liked to stay in one of the beachfront hotels that stretch up to the airport approx. 6km away. They...

I went to Nice a couple of years ago with my wife on a cheap flight with Easyjet. We had no idea what to expect when we arrived in the South of France. Our taxi whisked us away to our hotel, La Perousse, which I would recommend. It is part of a larger chain but feels as it is family owned and...
