sunshine riviera tour is fan of " la Merenda" restaurant


 Nice old town promote mediterranean cuisine
Dear visitor,

I have always good restaurants to recomand and for sure you will like to experience local food during your visit in Nice. La Merenda is owned and operated by the former chef at Chantecler restaurant in the Negresco Hotel along the Promenade Des Anglais. He's an award winning, Michelin starred chef that left behind the elegant, stylish fine dining of the Negresco Hotel to do his own thing in a completely unpretentious and simple setting. The restaurant seats no more than 30 on uncomfy bar stools and tightly packed tables in a small dining room but the food is still amazing, world class and unbelievably well priced.

FYI: in the village, the main street will take you to the panorama place called "square Victoria". The Queen of England used to stay nearby during winter, in Grasse, and one of its favorite excursions from the city of perfume was this village.

The pearl of the French Riviera


menton
French but yet so italien ! This elegant and colorful town has earned the nickname of "the pearl of France" due to its mild climate magnificent gardens and pleasant way of life, attracting numerous winter holiday-makers and residents.

FYI. Menton, city of citruses: a lovely legend is attached to the foundation of Menton. When Adam and Eve where banished from Paradise, Eve took a golden fruit. Adam got upset as he feared God's anger and asked her to throw away the fruit. After having crossed mountains, valleys and plains, they stopped on a remarkable bay with a mild climat and luxuriant vegetation. Everything reminded Eve Eden's sweet life. She burried the lemon and later was born a little paradise on earth: Menton.

Grasse
The perfume capital of the world, only astone’s throw away from the coast and set in a floral paradise, Grasse offers the visitor the possibility to discover its famous perfumeries and boutiques by walking through the narrow streets of the old town steeped in centuries of history.
