Nice Côte d’Azur

Nice Côte d'Azur

To be honest, I didn’t expect that a trip to France would take place this August. The invitation for an individual press trip to Nice Cote d’Azur that came from Atout France took me by surprise. I’ve been to France many times before, but never in the French Riviera. It felt like it was time to change this.

I flew to Nice from Vienna on a Friday evening and returned on Monday evening. I spent an amazing weekend in Nice. This amazing opportunity, to spend a wonderful weekend in the French Riviera, is possible when you book with Wizz Air.
