Good news for our travel readers, Air France has just added several air links between Algeria and France. So, from Algiers airport, you can now travel not only to Paris, but also to Bordeaux, Strasbourg, Nice and many other major French cities. The latter is one of the most popular with tourists from all over the world.
Nice, the first tourist city in France after Paris, and capital of the sublime Côte d’Azur. Nice is synonymous with glitz like that of the Cannes film festival. Breathtaking views, prestigious shopping centers, cultural places like the Matisse museum or the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild. But the Côte d’Azur wouldn’t be what it is without its legendary casinos like the Casino de Monte-Carlo, the Casino du Café de Paris and the Sun Casino. Other remarkable casinos are to be visited just a few kilometers away, such as the Casino de Beaulieu, the Croisette and the Princes in Cannes or the Siesta in Antibes.
Visiting these magical places will give you a unique experience. Back at the hotel and later at home, you can prolong the pleasure by continuing to play via online casinos. Presenting a comparison of the best online casino offers, the haz-tayeeb.com site is a good starting point to discover this other facet of the casino universe. Some have live games whose studios are located in the biggest casinos in town.
Some practical information
Nice is a destination with a mild climate reminiscent of that of Algeria. Additionally, the town and region includes a strong Algerian community, which means it is easy to find halal restaurants and grocery stores. In addition, Nice has an Algerian consulate, which can be crucial in the event of problems such as the loss of a passport.
To prepare for your stay, we recommend that you visit the Nice Côte d’Azur Metropolitan Tourist Office website explorenicecotedazur.com, a veritable mine of information. The Nice airport website will also be useful to you, in particular to indicate the means of transport to use to get to the city.
One thing to consider is that your flight will arrive around 7:40 p.m. (local time) in Nice. Allow a good hour to collect your luggage and go through customs. Make sure your hotel or Airbnb rental is informed of your late arrival. The other important thing to know is not to bring home cooked meals. For legal reasons, customs officers systematically throw them away.
Ideal starting point to explore the surrounding area
The major asset of Nice is to be located in the center of the Côte d’Azur. From Nice, you can reach Juan-les-Pins in Menton and go to the hinterland such as Vence, Vallauris, Grasse (the city famous for its perfumes), Saint-Paul de Vence or Eze. We have not yet mentioned the neighboring Italian cities, such as Ventimiglia and San Remo. There is so much to do and see in the area! It all depends on your interests and the length of your stay.
The best mall in the world
Nice and its surroundings offer thousands of prestigious stores such as Galeries Lafayette, markets such as the Cours Saleya flower market and several shopping centers including the “best shopping center” in the world. You will find both luxury products and items at more affordable prices.
Prestigious sporting events
Sports enthusiasts can take advantage of their stay in Nice to attend high-level sporting events. The OGC Nice football team counts among its players several Algerian internationals, such as Hicham Boudaoui. Basketball fans will be able to attend meetings with AS Monaco Basket, which plays in the Euroleague and won the EuroCup in 2021. And how not to mention the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix, one of the three most prestigious races in the world!
Nice is therefore a top destination that should be at the top of your list of French cities to visit in 2022.
