The Nice trip, organized by SAI, was one of my favorite trips during my study abroad experience. We were a group of eight students and our SAI coordinator, and I really enjoyed spending time getting to know each one of them. It is a great opportunity for all the SAI students in your program to socialize and talk about your study abroad experience so far. It’s also a great opportunity to make new friendships! Also, this allows you to enjoy your visit without worrying about planning your itinerary. It is all set for you!
During our weekend we went to Nice, Eze, Monte Carlo. It was beautiful!
The water is clear and perfectly blue, the people are nice and happy, and the food was amazing! Furthermore, if you are a fan of perfumes, or if you are interested in learning more about the art of perfumery, this is the place for you. After all, this is the capital of perfume!
During our stay, we visited one of the most famous perfumeries in France. This place called “Fragonard” is both a museum and a store, and if you come in the right day you might even get a personalized scent by their expert who they call “The Nose”.
Finally, I want to thank our wonderful SAI coordinator/tour guide and the person that decided to bring a deck of cards for the trip! (we had the most entertaining/competitive game of cards I’ve seen).
I definitely think you should not miss any of the included excursions and trips planned by SAI!
