Good food, salsa & on-foot sightseeing recommendations pls

Hi two 40 something ladies having a weekend in Nice in early June would love some tips for good eating establishments, salsa dancing, cocktails and sightseeing that involves walking around Nice taking in a bit of culture. We are staying very close to the Old Town.

Also someone has suggested its not too expensive to take a helicopter flight to Monte Carlo - this sounds fab! Any advice or recommendations for finding out flights and where to go (on foot) when you get there. Thank you.

Helicopter - "not too expensive"? Well, that depends - around 120 euro per passenger one way from Nice Airport to Monaco - I guess thats quite cheap for twenty minutes of "wow", factor 10.

Train back to Nice will be considerably less, at around five euro. But a little less of wow.

Monaco is tiny. Just walk in any direction and you will see about everything within an hour or two . The Oceanographic museum and the tropical gardens are pretty impressive, but firstr sit for fifteen minutes at the Cafe de Paris outside the Casino and downed a kir and watched the Monegasques go about their day . You are in Monaco. Double or Triple any kind of reasonable price and you're getting close.
