5. Nice (the ice rink… and the sun!)

Do you prefer to run away from the cold for the end of the year? The French Riviera responds present. In Nice, you can enjoy mild temperatures and mild weather.

While it’s a little cool to put on your swimsuit, we had a favorite for a much more exotic activity: ice skating in the middle of the palm trees. Indeed, Nice has installed the track in the Albert I Park of Belgium and its decor based on pebbles and palm trees.
