Preparing your trip to Nice: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

1. Fans of shopping should not forget to should visit «degriffes» shops, in which they can buy clothes and shoes of famous brands. These shops sell unsold merchandise from department stores, and prices are several times lower than in regular shops.
2. Service charge in hotels and restaurants is usually included in the total bill and estimates around 15% of the full amount. Tips can be left only in some open-air cafes and bars, but this is not necessary.
3. When you visit a restaurant, a bar or a night club, you should be very attentive to the choice of clothing. Provocative and revealing outfits are not recommended.
4. You should not sit at the first free table you see in a restaurant as it can be already booked. A waiter indicates free sets to guests.
5. Make sure you watch your belongings carefully in the crowded places. Despite the fact that the crime level in Nice is one of the lowest in the country, many citizens and guests of the city cannot protect themselves from dexterous pickpockets. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
6. Locals really appreciate all attempts of visitors to speak their native language. Make sure you learn several phrases in French. This will not only easier the communication with citizens, but also will help to gain respect of hotels’ employees.
