Top Summer Getaways And Shoe Recommendations For Each Place
1. Mykonos, Greece
What was formerly known as Greece’s most notorious party island, has now turned out a bit more grown-up but not less fancy holiday destination, with still a lot of cool bars, restaurants and other going-out possibilities. A must (besides the daily beach session) is wandering through Little Venice, the town’s 18th-century district and of course visiting a beach club, like Nammos at Psarou Beach, where nice DJ sounds cater for dancing mood after a sophisticated dinner!

Capri makes one think of the glamorous Italian lifestyle of the 50s and 60s!

6. Nice, France
The French Riviera is mainly a high society spot and not really convenient for an ordinary mortals-vacation? Wrong, if you consider going to Nizza. Among the big destinations at the Côte D’Azur (like Monaco or Cannes) it is probably the nicest place to travel to. The charming city makes it’s guest feel homelike with its little streets, the cozy restaurants at the promenade and not to forget: the worlds biggest ice cream parlor, Fenocchio, which offers more than 100 flavors! Even just for the ice cream it’s worth going to Nice.
