Duration: 5 days
Where I stayed: Le Vieux Nice Inn
Type of vacation: Family
What I loved: Massages at the local massage parlour which name I can’t believe I’ve forgotten, but it’s a new one in Hulhumale about 1min away from the hotel. We tried the coconut oil massage and it was an incredible hour. Make sure to ask for Sandy!

Where I partied: Navigli, a lively area filled with bars that will offer you an aperitivo (tapas, appetisers…) with your drink during Happy Hours and a beautiful view of the canal.
