When in Nice…
Cycle the Promenade: Velos blues are popular in Nice, there are nearly 2000 of them to hire, and 175 bike stations. You needn’t be a cycling pro, as the promenade provides a flat and enjoyable cycle! Here’s a tip- the first 30 minutes are free, so unlock it and return it back to a stand half an hour later and get another one out!
Don’t miss the boat: We can’t recommend enough the experience of a day trip for a well-rounded experience of the Riviera. A ferry service is available from Nice Port to a number of destinations including: St Tropez; La Corniche d’Or (between Cannes/St Raphael); San Remo (Italy); Various ports in Corsica. We can particularly recommend the 1 ½ hour boat trip around Villefranche bay which leaves from the Cote d’azur office at Nice Port and also the Lerin Island/corniche trip which leaves at 9 am and returns at 7pm. Anchor between the islands in the midst of glittering turquoise waters and enjoy a refreshing dip before an al fresco lunch.
Visitor Information Centre: A small tourist information office is situated near the fountain at Place Massena, and another on the Promenade des Anglais next to the Casino (http://www.nice-tourism.com/en/tourist-information-offices-in-nice.html).
Nice Opera is within walking distance, and several of the cinemas in Nice show the latest releases of films in English Language (look for VO version). For a sundowner head, to Hotel Meridien for panoramic views of the bay, or for a more lively night, Wayne’s bar is full of a younger crowd each night. A few train stops down the coast lead you to Cannes, which is brimming with a vast array of bars and clubs, or push the boat out and head to Monaco to try your hand in the casino.
Local shops: Most importantly, where can you get your breakfast croissant from! When you step out the apartment there are several epiceries, boulangeries to get essentials; or head up the high street by tram or foot to Monoprix, the supermarket. In Place St Francois the daily fish market sells fresh catches and finishes as the fishmonger’s energy levels deplete, or Cours Saleya is the place for fresh fruit, veg and traditional nibbles, every day until about 1.30pm except Monday when it is a flea market.

You need to walk up a residential alley in the old town – it looks unlikely there is a restaurant there and then you come to it. Its fantastic and well worth the walk.
Located on the western Ionian coast of Salento in the southernmost half of Puglia, the town of Marina di Pulsano is surrounded by a region of natural beauty. Step out of your front door, and you’ll find a coastline of continuous sandy beaches, tucked-away bays, and crystal-clear turquoise waters. It is always warm here whatever the season with year round sunshine.
Pulsano’s old town is also a treasure trove of historical sights. Highlights include the 15th-century Castello de Falconibus and the church of St. Maria La Nova – built in the mid-800s.
The Surrounding Region: Beyond the immediate area, the whole of Salento is within a 1-2 hour drive. Along with 500 miles of coastline, paradisiacal beaches and glittering bays, the region is dotted with medieval towns, sun-baked olive groves and vineyards.
Be sure to explore the historic centres of whitewashed hilltop towns such as Cisternino, Martina Franca, Ceglie Messapica, Ostuni and Locorotondo. Hiding maze-like streets, Baroque churches, medieval castles and communal gardens, these charming towns are all within easy reach of one another and can be visited as part of a day trip.
History buffs will adore wandering the atmospheric quarters of pretty towns such as Gallipoli, Nardò and Maglie. Sitting on the edge of rugged limestone cliffs, there’s more exploring to be done in the ancient town of Polignano a Mare. Considered one of Puglia’s most significant early settlements, it was previously inhabited by invaders ranging from the Normans to the Huns.
Further afield, the UNESCO World Heritage site of Alberobello is worth a special visit. This enchanting town is home to 1500 white-washed conical-roofed houses known as trulli – dating back to around the 14th century. Matera, a fascinating hilltop town of cave dwellings and buildings cut into the rocks, is Europe’s City of Culture 2019 and is a 90-minute drive away.
Meanwhile, Lecce “the Florence of the South”, is a walkable city of exuberant Baroque architecture, buzzing pavement cafes, outdoor wine bars, and outstanding cuisine. And if you’re looking for a complete change of scene, drive 1 hour 15 minutes to Fasanoland – a safari theme park loved by adults and kids alike.
Puglia’s Passion For Food Beautiful yet simple, the food of Puglia is a true highlight of any visit to the region. Vine-ripened tomatoes, sweet peppers, homegrown herbs, fresh fish and plenty of olive oil define a rustic cuisine that makes the most of wonderful local ingredients.
Order regional favourites including orecchiette con le cime di rapa – “little ears” pasta with turnip greens, crispy pizzette topped with cherry tomatoes, and the creamy custard-filled pastry, pasticciotto. With its patchwork of vineyards, sampling a glass or two of Puglia’s fabulous local wine is also a must!
