Why is Croatia Traveller in Nice, France?
It's where I live! And, since the pandemic last year it's been hard to move around Europe. Also, until recently, visitors to Croatia slowed to a trickle. So I stayed put and started looking around my home base. What I found was a city so rich in history, culture and hidden sights, I decided to write a book about it.
Nice Uncovered: Walks Through the Secret Heart of a Historic City
is the very first book of self-guided walking tours through Nice. I mapped out seven detailed walking tours through Nice's most fascinating neighborhoods: Old Town, Cimiez, Castle Hill &
Port Lympia, Promenade des Anglais, Quartier des Musiciens, Promenade du Paillon and West Nice.
I had a lot of fun researching Nice's extraordinary architectural heritage, unearthing vintage photos and delving into long-forgotten legends. I can easily understand why Nice was just named a Unesco World Heritage Site
If you're planning to come to Nice at some point, I know you'll want to buy Nice Uncovered. The paperback and e-book edition is available on Amazon (click here
). Check out niceuncovered.com
for more information about the writing of the book and for 25% off the digital edition
Croatia is very much back in business this year after a serious slump in 2020. Direct flights from New York to Dubrovnik
have made it easy for Americans to discover Croatia's famous walled city. It's a great time to visit the "pearl of the Adriatic"
as the cruise ships that have bedeviled the city with excessive crowds are nearly non-existent.
What about Covid in Croatia?
Alas, it must be discussed. Croatia has not been hit quite as hard as many other European countries and we hope that situation continues. Still, there are strict entry requirements that differ for European and non-European visitors. And, there are masking and social-distancing rules in place throughout the country that vary according to the region.
