1. A swimsuit

2. Sunscreen (and after-sun)

The sun of Nice isn’t gentle. The sunscreen is an essential product for holidays here, whether you prefer spending your day sunbathing on the beach, or even rather visiting !

3. A hat and sunglasses

Sun is omnipresent on the French Riviera – take hide-brimmed hats and round metal sunglasses to be up on the latest fashions while protecting yourself !

4. A summer dress, shorts and T-shirts

Choose carefully your clothes for an unforgettable stay in the beautiful city of Nice. Take the maximum of light clothes, without forgetting a small jacket for the evenings when the air gets cooler…

5. Flips-flops or Crocs shoes

They are light and thus don’t need much place in the luggage, and they will be very useful to you on the pebbles of the beaches of Nice, located a few minutes from the Best Western Plus Hotel Massena.

6. Walking shoes

If you plan to visit the French Riviera, and above all the countryside, take walking shoes. With appropriate shoes, you will climb better the Castle Hill, the Mount Boron or even the Nietzsche Pathway, in Eze. Your feet will thank you, and you’ll be able to make the most of your discoveries then.

7. A backpack

To take your picnic, your beach towel and your swimsuit to bath after a day’s march, the backpack is necessary. The traveler best friend doesn’t need to prove itself anymore, its practical aspect has already convinced more than one ! And if you don’t have any, it will give you a good occasion to go shopping…

8. A camera (without forgetting its charger)

It is necessary if you want to immortalize the wonderful landscapes of Nice and its surroundings ! You could then share your best pictures of the turquoise waters of the French Riviera, your design room at the Best Western Plus Hotel Massena Nice, children playing in the water mirror or sunsets from Rauba Capeu peak. You will make others jealous, we can assure you !

9. A bottle / thermos

Refresh yourself at any hour of the day is required, above all in Nice, where temperatures are high all the year !

10. A first-aid kit

As nobody is ever entirely protected from accidents, the first-aid kit is part of the luggage of every wise traveler.

11. A place for souvenirs

Let some space in your luggage ! There’s a risk you’ll want to buy everything when you’ll walk in the Provençal markets, like the one of the Cours Saleya, a few minutes from the Best Western Plus Hotel Massena Nice !
