Nice, France. I have been here twice already and I still have fond memories of this place.
When Rick asked me where I wanted to travel to in December, I told him that we had not seen enough of France. I immediately remembered our Spring honeymoon which included a visit to Nice three years ago. The weather was warm with a slight breeze and the promenade had a vibrant feel about it.
This time round, when we arrived in Nice during winter, Nice was exactly the same as we had left it. Our hotel room had a balcony with an amazing view of the ocean and promenade. I enjoyed standing at the window just taking in the peaceful night air. After the hustle and bustle of London, it was bliss to experience the contrast.
Nice is a beautiful town to visit and a great starting point for visiting other towns on the French Riviera. We also visited Monaco (again) which I will talk about in my next post.
We especially enjoyed walking around ‘Old Town’ and sampling the amazing dishes they had on offer, from wood-fire grilled lamb, beef ragù to chocolate eclairs. The food was so good that Rick and I would spend time discussing the details during and after each meal!
Ahhh… I love France! It’s just so picturesque and filled with amazing food choices!
