French cuisine is one of the most expensive and luxurious in the world, so while you’re in the country, make sure to indulge! However, if you’re expecting to be dining on escargot, onion soup or beef bourguignon, you’ll be disappointed. This part of France was discovered by the Greeks and later taken over by the Romans. As a result, Nice is heavy on Italian culture, particularly when it comes to food. But we’re not saying that’s a bad thing because who doesn’t love pasta?
If you’re an ice-cream fanatic like me (I have to try ice cream in every country I go to), you need to take a trip to Azzuro. This gelateria has been serving ice cream since 1997 and has some of the most unique flavours such as lavender, jasmine, Toblerone, tiramisu and meringue.
Finally, the most important treat, the one you can’t leave Nice without trying, an authentic macaron. This French confection is the best indulgence for your taste buds and you’ll have no problem finding a patisserie – they’re everywhere. From mojito to lemon, chocolate to vanilla, you’ll definitely find a flavour you love.
