The Approach to Nice Airport is Pretty...Nice

Where: Nice, France

Nothing says glam quite like the French Riviera, so itís fitting that Nice Airport—while it may be small—is beautifully formed. From the airport buildings that look like a grand hotel to the palm trees by where the planes parked, arriving there is all rather glamorous, but the most glamorous part of all is the runway itself.

See, Nice airport is right on the coast—the runway is actually built out in the sea—so landing there, if youíre on the right side, gives the impression youíre in a seaplane. Luckily, we had a hunch and chose our side well; a nice blast of adrenaline as you come in to land over the water, and a nice surge of prettiness as you land with the wing practically skimming the Mediterranean. Views of the surrounding coastline arenít half bad either.

Donít worry though Ė itís not dangerously scary. Just a little bit of zing to brighten up the approach. C'est fantastique!
