Walk from Beaulieu to Cap Ferat

by lydia66

We would like to take the coastal path from Beaulieu to Cap Ferat in Easter. If we take the bus from Nice to Beaulieu is it easy to find the path and approx. how long is the walk. Also, can we return to Nice by bus from Cap Ferat or elsewhere. If anyone could help it would be very useful. Also, if you are aware of other interesting walks in the Nice area it would be helpful.

At Beaulieu sur mer ask for "promenade maurice rouvier" this walk is easy (fully paved and no stairs) approx: 2 kms
you can return to nice by bus n° 81 . I think there is one stop at the "port de st jean cap ferrat"

It is a beautiful walk!!! Depending on how fast or slowly you want to enjoy it, you will need about one hour, maybe a little more if you like to enjoy strolling slowly and decide for a stopover to wade a little on the way. If you start from the Casino, in front of Kerylos villa (a great visit, too!), there is a pedestrian path that goes along the beach "plage des fourmis", that's where the "promenade maurice rouvier" begins and it leads you to the entrance of St Jean. To me, this is where the real walk starts! If you want more, then continue around the Cap, it is really so beautiful. At a gentle pace, it takes about 3 hours but is the most spectacular part of the walk in my opinion. If you are courageous enough to climb the 150 or so steps to reach the top of the lighthouse in Cap Ferrat, you will discover the most amazing view over the coast, from Bordighera tip in Italy to the Esterel (red rock mountains in the Var department). Enjoy!!

Travel Tips for Nice

by DeniseE

One of the most beautiful villages in southern France is Mougins!
It's a small villlage with a lovely old town situated on top of a hill with a smashing view over Cannes.
At night the small roads are beautifully illuminated and there are lots of extremely expensive luxury restaurants but also ones for normal people where you can sit outside and have menu dinner for 100 Francs.
Don't miss it!

by Krystynn

head to MENTON (approximately 9 kilometers away from Monaco); it's a comparatively quiet resort town with the warmest climate on the French Riviera. You must also spend some time checking out the quaint VIEILLE VILLE (OLD TOWN) located just above the jetty. It seems to have an Italian feeeeel to it - with its pretty squares and lively market. Other interesting must-see attractions here include the HOTEL DE VILLE (TOWN HALL) right in the center of town and the Casino (not far from the Promenade du Soleil).

Nice has had a rather turbulent history and there are many celebrations, festivals and events recognising many of the traditions from its past. It has been ruled at different periods by Greeks, Romans, counts of Provence, dukes of Savoy, kings of Sardinia, Italy, and, since 1860, France.

L'Eglise Saint-Giaume

by vivalasteph

Known as the Church of Saint Rita, this place has become a pilgrimage for single women. I read about in a guide book, which referred to Saint Rita as the patron saint of miserable, middle-aged women, and decided this was a must-do on my itinerary!

The church features archaelogical ruins on the exterior of the building, behind imposing wrought iron fences, with beautiful frescoes and sculpture adorning the interior. Enter on rue Benoit Bunico.

The shrine to Saint Rita is the first on the left as you enter the chapel. Go beyond it and walk through the doors on the left to reach the gift shop and buy a candle. Then go back out and light your way to happiness! Let's hope it works!

The Nice Observatory

by NiceLife

High up above Nice on top of Mont Gros is the Observatory of Nice. Built in1879 by the banker Raphaël Bischoffsheim, its 76 cm refracting telescope was the largest in the world in its day. Charles Garnier (facade of Hotel Carlton Cannes fame) was the architect and Gustave Eiffel (of Paris Eiffel Tower fame) the engineer who designed the main cupola.

Getting to the Observatory requires a boy-scout badges in initiative. Take bus to 1,2 or 10 from central Nice to Nice Riquier, and from there, from opposite the Fly furniture store, the 84 little minibus bus bound for Beaulieu will drop you off at the Observatory

The Observartory can be accessed through entrance gates at the end of a private road off the Chemin Vinaigrier, only on Saturday and Wednesday afternoons at 15.00, when two hour guided tour is available (charge 5 eu). Its all in French, and there is no escape, as you must stay with the group. You will be taken inside the main dome, which will be opened to the sky.
