When we were backpacking through Europe, we rented a car and went on one of the most spectacular road trips of my life through the French Riviera. We started from Nice and drove along the coast till we reached Monaco. We took multiple stops along the way to explore old town streets, beautiful beaches, museums and absolutely stunning views. We also enjoyed the panoramic beauty of coast at Castle hill, an attraction popular among tourists from around the globe. Many parts of the Castle on this Hill have crumbled away, but the view is certainly worth climbing up the stairs. If you are planning a trip to Nice and wondering about the best time of the year to visit this beautiful city, let me just say it is always nice in Nice.
