Well-known for the beautiful views of its famous Promenade des Anglais waterfront, Nice is an ethnically-diverse coastal port city on the French Riviera and the fifth most populated city in France.
You'll explore and learn at Palais Lascaris and Fondation Maeght. You'll get in some beach time at Castel Plage and Plage de Sylvabelle. Change things up with these side-trips from Nice: La Ponche Beach (in Saint-Tropez) and Saint-Paul de Vence (in St-Paul-de-Vence). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Vieille Ville, explore the different monuments and memorials at Cimetiere du Chateau, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedrale Saint-Nicolas a Nice, and do a tasting at Domaine de Toasc.

Cairo, Egypt to Nice is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. You can also drive. The time zone changes from Eastern European Standard Time (EET) to Central European Standard Time (CET), which is usually a -1 hour difference. Prepare for a bit cooler weather when traveling from Cairo in June: high temperatures in Nice hover around 28°C and lows are around 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 3rd (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Paris.

A beautiful and romantic city fit for any itinerary, Paris brims with historic associations and remains vastly influential in the realms of culture, art, fashion, food and design.
Escape the urban bustle at Île de la Cité and Paris Plage. For shopping fun, head to Le Marais or Champs-Elysees. Step out of Paris with an excursion to Palace of Versailles in Versailles--about 48 minutes away. There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at Louvre Museum, contemplate the long history of Eiffel Tower, take a stroll through Montmartre, and admire the landmark architecture of Centre National d'Art et de Culture George Pompidou.
