Take a look at these hiking routes in southern France if you want to explore the area on two feet.
One of the most famous treks on the French Riviera, the Nietzsche Path runs from Eze to Eze-sur-Mer. It takes its name from the German philosopher Friedrich Nietszche, who used to walk here. It should take you about 1.5 hours from start to finish, and, on clear days, you can see over the Mediterranean to Italy and Corsica.
For an easier stroll, try the Cap d’Antibes Hiking Trail. It’s only 4.8 kilometers from start to finish, but you will get to see some amazing sea views as you wind around the peninsula. For a slightly longer trek, take on the 10-kilometer route from the medieval hilltop town of Biot to Valbonne, passing along the Brague valley. Another easy route is the Vallauris trail, a 3.5-kilometer stroll that offers views over Cannes and the Esterel mountains.
You can also walk your way around some of the many national parks in the area, such as the Parc du Grade Corniche. One of the best trails is the Fort de la Revere walk, which gives views down the coast from a derelict military fort.

Barcelona’s insane popularity and large influx of visitors as of late may have some travelers steering away from the Mediterranean coastal city, but just outside the overpopulated center of the city, known as Ciutat Vella, are quieter neighborhoods that offer more of a local feel and don’t come with exorbitant tourist prices. El Poble-Sec is one such area that rests between the towering Montjuic park and the Old Town, making it a nice escape but still close enough to access the sights.
In food capitals like New York City, foodie crazes seem to rise and set as quickly as the sun, but one trend that has endured for awhile now is the city’s penchant for regional Chinese cuisine, and the East Village is home to some of the city’s top spots for sampling your way through several of these regions.
Dining is an art, and now that applies to both on the ground and at 35,000 feet thanks to Hainan Airlines’ “Hai Chef” Inflight Artistic Chinese cuisine series, a collaboration with Dong Zhenxiang, a Chinese culinary master also known as Dadong.
Some places appear better to visit in the winter. For example, anywhere known for winter sports, such as skiing and snowboarding, will be less visited in the summer because those same people are going to spend their time at the beach or another destination. However, visiting these destinations during the off-seasons can show a side of the city or town that can’t be seen under piles of snow. It’s worth checking out a couple of these favorite winter destinations.
