Ah Nice, the essence of the South of France: sun, beaches, smiles, colorful dishes, and extraordinary and varied landscapes, just a few kilometers from the popular Promenade des Anglais.
In Nice, life is good, but not only for joggers along the promenade, the brave climbing Castle Hill Park or party goers come to enjoy a holiday in the sun. In Nice, it is also good to live for those looking to live quietly in their beautiful years, in a warm, quiet place and animated by others, where the days can be punctuated as much by cultural visits as lazy hours on the beach. Dynamic and lively, Nice still has more quiet activities for seniors not wishing to run in all directions. Why not spend a weekend with your grandparents? Or offer them a city break under the sun, which will do them the greatest good! We love the idea of offering a Smartbox to Grandma for Mother’s Day, for example;) She can choose a nice guest house, a spa hotel for pampering, or a nice restaurant where to taste seafood. Then here are some ideas of things to to do for seniors …
Flower Market Cours Saleya
Quiet in Nice: things to do for seniors
This incredible market of the old city dates from 1897! There are also fruits and vegetables, but the displays of flowers and plants are the most impressive. What to walk quietly admiring the colorful flora, and why not enjoy some delicacies market stands. To bring back: a little tea or tapenade pots.
The Traveler Nissart
This family restaurant is close to the train station and is perfect for those arriving or departing by train. You can sample Provençal classics with lots of zucchini, lamb and of course salad nicoise, all for reasonable prices and interesting menus.
The Promenade des Anglais
While some people do their daily jogging, nothing prevents those seeking a leisurely stroll from taking a walk and taking their time. Beach or bar-restau, the opportunities to stop taking a break are many, and the view always so beautiful all along. Lovers of cocktails and architecture will be able to do a whole thing at Hotel Negresco: the bar serves classics as well as its signature cocktail, the Royal Negresco, made with kirsch, raspberry syrup and Champagne.
A tour in Antibes
For a quiet getaway, Antibes is only 15 minutes by train from Nice. The views are extraordinary, the beaches are magnificent, and the yachts are impressive. Those who are not tired will admire the landscape from the Fort Carré, which dates from the 16th century, or visit the Picasso Museum, where once lived the painter.
A visit to Nice is not complete without a tasting of Socca, a Provencal specialty based on chickpeas, cooked in a large stone oven. At Pipo has served since 1923 and is one of the most popular places to enjoy a little socca!
