The Côte d'Azur is a great place to be for Christmas with plenty of fun, unusual and traditional events taking place throughout the festive period.  Blessed with 300 days of sunshine a year, many of which fall over the Holidays, this is a lovely time to be in Nice and the surrounding area.  Here's a short list of 6 top things to do in and around Nice at Christmas suitable for families, couples and individuals of all ages.  And best of all my suggestions won't break the bank, most of them are absolutely free.

Andorra and the European Microstates

Posted by on in European Travel

It wouldn’t be a European road trip without notching up another country or two.  Last year Poland was new, in 2013 Montenegro, Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina were all new to me.  So this summer the temptation to visit Andorra, a tiny principality wedged high in the Pyrenees between Spain and France, was too much and we detoured several hours off route just to drive through this mountain tax haven.

The French Riviera, or Côte d’Azur as it’s called in French, is famous (and possibly infamous) for its beaches.  There are an enormous variety in the approximately 125 kilometres of coastline between Menton and St Tropez, from pebbles to fine white sand, from long open stretches to small rocky coves, from urban built-up beaches to wild secluded ones, and just about everything in between.
