My Travels Neil Walker - View All

Nice is a central place to stay for those that wish to explore the Cote d'Azur and the Grasse area of the South of France.

Less expensive than its famous neighbor Monaco its easy to visit Monty Carlo.

For me I like to drive to the Grasse area, explore and have lunch in a small restaurant.
