Under $100 / Europe

Nice offers a wonderful seaside break along the French Rivieria, and is the perfect spot for anyone looking for a tranquil 24 hours on a budget. Though dining might not be cheap, there are plenty of attractions that won’t cost a dime.

 

Start off with a great breakfast at Workhouse Café and enjoy a cup of coffee with some of the delicious pancakes for only $10. From there, make your way over to the flower market at Cours Saleya for an invigorating walk through one of the most vibrant and best smelling locales in the city.

 

After you’ve had your fill of flowers, seek out Castle Hill. It’s a bit of a climb to the top, but the views of the city and ocean are extraordinary. Head back down and take a stroll through Old Town and have a peak into the dozens of charming boutique shops before sampling a black burger at Polly and Cie. This Nice establishment serves some of the best lunch in town for roughly $20 a meal.

 

Nice has quite an impressive collection of museums, featuring some of France’s most prolific artists. Begin with a trip to the Museum of Modern & Contemporary Art, right next to the exquisite Place Garibaldi. You can purchase a ticket for the museum for only €10, which also grants you access to the nearby Fine Arts Museum and the Matisse Museum.

 

Next, soak up some sun as you stroll along the Promenade des Anglais. Walking the length of it will take at least an hour, longer if you stop in to check out the numerous local shops.

 

Finally, head back to Old Town for a delectable dinner at Acchiardo. Its steaks are top-notch, but they offer a variety of Italian and French cuisine for around $30 a plate.
