Museums In and Near Nice, France

When people ask why I keep returning to the south of France, I always reply: There are other places in the world with scenic topography, comfortable weather, beautiful beaches and even great food.

These 10 small, easy-to-maneuver museums in and near Nice can be enjoyed in an hour or less, the perfect length of time to introduce young people to the great artists who lived and worked on the Cote d’Azur.

Marvelous Mediterranean Food Markets on the French Riviera

The Marché, with its exquisitely presented fresh food stalls is as typical to France as are cafés, croissants and café au lait. It’s where locals and tourists shop for fresh ingredients, from staples such as olives, olive oil, truffles and herbes de Provence to gorgeously arranged fruits and vegetables to pre-cooked meals. Many sample delicacies while walking, shopping, snacking; other take the goodies to the beach or a perfect piquenique.
