boat trips

by kidd12

hi. visting nice in april. I like to go out for a day on a boat to see differnet ports, etc. is there anything like this i can book

Re: boat trips

by TOPSHELFPUBCRAWLER

Not sure, but if it does not work out, I highly recommend visiting the perched Village of EZE. It is about 7 KM from Nice and is the most scenic medieval village overlooking the French Riviera. Stunning views, and the village itself is a Photogs dream. Exceptional food at the La Chèvre d’Or "Golden Goat," is worth the stop on its own. We spent the afternoon walking around, going through shops, taking numerous photographs, and sipping pink champagne on the veranda overlooking the French Riviera. Just a perfect afternoon.

Visit my Eze page for some pictures.

Cheers!

Sean

Bonjour! I would look to the Port of Nice or Villefranche sur Mer. I know the French Riviera Chamber of Commerce has a website that lists the ports. Look up under "activities" for "coastal boat trips" then look for "Useful information". Click on Nice and Companies are listed. See their website:

Re: boat trips

by NiceLife

Boat trips out of Nice are provided by the Trans Cotes d'Azur, who depart from Quai Lunel at the port. There are boat trips most days so its a case of tipping up to see if there is anything you fancy you can book in the following few days

http://www.trans-cote-azur.co.uk/


Nice has daily ferries to Corsica that take around three hours each way. It is possible to go out and back same day as a foot passenger, though you wont see much of Corsica of course.

Trips out of Cannes Port are to the small off-shore islands of St Honnorat and St Margueritte - but its a twenty minute trip, not a day


You can rent a very small boat with or without a permit from Antibes Port Vauban and pilot yourself around.

I am not aware of any other options on the lines you describe locally

make a beeline to ROQUEBRUNE/...

by Krystynn

make a beeline to ROQUEBRUNE/ CAP MARTIN, a few kilometers away from San Remo in Italy. The hilltop village of ROQUEBRUNE has an interesting castle and quaint medieval houses on its narrow streets... whilst the adjacent CAP MARTIN is characterized by its many wealthy villa dwellers.

Note: The photo below shows a string of quaint cafes found along the beach area. Cafe latte, anyone?

Talking

by NiceLife

The French love conversation. Everywhere you look you will see people in conversation, especially when dining out on lettuce leaf in an alfresco setting. Contrast this with dull silence that accompanies so many of our encounters in other countries.

I attribute this to the fact that French television is truly awful. Quiz shows, dubbed American cop shows, the British Inspector Barnaby, three hour round table discussions, and adverts that endlessly about food and more food - kitchen setting, cooking, and the perpetual washing machine repairman telling the dim-bulb houswife she should have used "Calgon"

As a result of the poor quality of entertainment and substitute relationships though the media, people actually communicate a lot with other people, and the pleasant climate facilitates doing this outdoors, far from the reach of television.

People in Nice are endlesly engaged in conversation.

Try it yourself, but remember the topics so loved in the Anglo-Saxon world - " Hi - what do you do? (and how much money do you make!) are absolutely forbidden. The weather is usually a safe opening, followed by some existential observations on life.

Be sure to observe "La Politesse" - the public politeness of greeting and farewell on entering and leaving a shop. When the merchants' greeting "Bonjour!" next hits you as you enter a shop , respond in kind. "Bonjour!" Then on leaving - "Au revoir!" Bon apres midi! This is normal. It doesn't constitute a conversation.

Boat Trip

by in4ik

Get away from the big busy city. Take a boat trip to see the real French Riviera - small towns between Nice and Monaco.

The boat trip starts from Nice port. The guide was talking French only. He is telling mostly about who owns which villa on sea shore. For example, Elton John has his food deliveries by helicopter there. Believe it or not. Some villas are worth a trip. God knows how owners get there... Each real estate costs a furtune!

Cité de La Buffa

by Elainehead

I gently called it "Cité de La Bouffe" ("City of the Food". Bouffe is an informal way of saying "food").

Cité de La Buffa is a covered market selling mostly food, from vegetables and fruit to fish and meat (prices are usually higher than the supermarket). Not many tourists here, because it's not mentioned in most tourist guides.

Unfortunately a lot of stands closed and the place looks dirty and shady. :(

The market has 3 entrances:

- On Boulevard Gambetta (two blocks away from Promenade des Anglais), almost hidden beside the supermarket Casino (behind the bus stop), If you see flowers outside that's the entrance).

- On Rue du Maréchal Joffre (beside the Casino Supermarket Fish Stall, almost on the corner of Boulevard Gambetta).

- On Rue de la Buffa, 54

Open hours: Everyday from 7 AM to 1 PM.

Notice: By midday, you will hardly find any fresh pasta left (at least where we usually buy our raviollis).

If you need any advice on where buying the best products in this market, don't hesitate to send me an e-mail.
