No. 70: Weekend in Nice

Good morning!

Good morning!

 
 

Last weekend I spent in Nice, France and today I want to share with You some of the pics I have taken. I'll try to encourage You to pick this destination for Your next trip. I can guarantee that You'll enjoy it.

I booked the first available plane on Saturday (early) morning so that I could have four full days (I was flying back to Amsterdam on Tuesday evening). I managed to get an excellent deal with Transavia (the company celebrates 50 years, so many flights are on sale due to that occasion). I was looking for an accommodation either in the city centre or close to the beach. I follow a rule on Booking.com and look at suites that have 8.0 or more points from all reviews and ALWAYS read complaints (people share those stuff for a reason and You don't to have a ruined stay no matter where You travel). 

The airport in Nice is very tiny and a 15-minute drive to the port of Nice Le Port Nice.  You can transfer from the airport by bus, train or taxi (or Uber taxi - I paid around 17 euros). On the airport web page, You'll find all necessary information. I was lucky enough to get a full itinerary from the hotel with all possible ways to get to the booked residence.

The first day I spent at the beach after dropping off my luggage at the B&B. The weather was insanely warm and I wasn't aware of that when checking the weather forecast (didn't take my bikini). I was very fortunate to meet some great people at the reception area of the guesthouse I was staying at.

On weekends You can find plenty of markets where You can buy handmade things (clothes, handbags, jewellery, paintings and so on). In the evening I went with my new friend for a dinner to a Spanish restaurant and enjoyed some tapas.

On Sunday I had a walk around the city and bumped into a great car show (no pics were allowed to be taken). Some of my new friends were leaving on that day so I went to see them off at the station and spend the rest of the day just passing through the streets. In the evening I went out with two people, Cristina and Mauricio to a little bar round the corner of the guesthouse and tried some local wines and beers.

Monday and Tuesday I travelled to Cannes and Monte Carlo (there will be two separate posts about those day trips). I tried my best to take the most out of this trip and see as much as I can.

I was actually impressed by the buzzing nightlife and amenities that the city has to provide for its visitors. I haven't' felt bored even for one second. Stunning architecture, the warmth of the locals and great food will definitely create beautiful memories.
