Under $100 / Europe

Nice is a lovely city to explore and the weather is great for a large part of the year. Here’s what to do if you are on a budget.

Breakfast at Café Marche is one of the best around, and uses local and organic produce. The café itself is bright and airy with the beach just a short stroll away, so it’s the perfect spot to get a coffee and croissant or something more substantial ($12).

Take a stroll down Promenade des Anglais to digest your food and you will experience one of the finest seaside promenades in the world. It’s huge, and it becomes a social hub when the weather is good. Drop in to the old town and visit Place Massena, the main city square, which feels more like Italy than France.

For lunch try Chez Palmyre, a traditional café-brasserie where you can get a three-course meal for $20. This place has been open since 1926 with only one change in management, so it’s understandably become an institution.

In the afternoon, climb to the Parc de la Colline du Chateau, up a steep hill to the east of the city. It’s tough going but you’ll be rewarded with incredible views over Nice and the Baie des Anges.

At dinner time, head to L’Petit Resto, in a tiny square off Rue Place Vielle. Think traditional French food with a healthy twist, and a set menu that comes in around $25.
