Nice Travel Tips

  • The handshake is the most common form of greeting. However, friends (new or old) may greet each other by lightly kissing on the cheeks, once on the left cheek and once on the right cheek.
  • You are expected to say ‘bonjour’ or ‘bonsoir’ (good day and good evening) with the title ‘Monsieur’ or ‘Madame’ when entering a shop or greeting strangers, and ‘au revoir’ (goodbye) when leaving. It is strongly recommended you know your basics in French…you will be well-remembered for it.
  • French fashion is undeniably stylish and sophisticated. If ever questioning what to wear, dressing up is never a bad choice (except at the beach, of course).
