5 July

Setting sail from Nice (Villefranche)

Nice enjoys a marvellous setting on one of the most glorious stretches of the Côte d'Azur, the sweeping Bay of Angels, so it's no wonder that tourists have been flocking here since the 19th century. A stroll along the waterfront Promenade des Anglais, flanked by palm trees on one side and the dazzling blue of the Mediterranean on the other, is the quintessential Niçois experience, and one we'll never tire of. Do try and make some time to explore the old town as well though; it's a maze of wonderfully winding streets, some of which may be barely wide enough to squeeze through after that hearty seafood lunch!

Our tip

Buy a Nice Riviera Pass from the tourist office which gets you free access to many museums and historical places both in and around Nice, not to mention a ride on the open-topped bus!

What we love

Ponant's most intimate ship came into service over 20 years ago but is still much loved today. Ultra sleek in its design the modern staterooms all have port hole windows but the delight of this vessel is the al fresco nature of the public spaces with a large sundeck, outdoor restaurant and swimming marina so you you'll always feel connected to the sea.
