We just arrived home from Nice. It was the most amazing trip. We took the TVG from Paris. It was very easy. We stayed at the Westminster hotel on the Promenade de Anglais. It was beautiful! We started each morning eating breakfast on the patio terrace overlooking the water. Wow! We visited the sights in Nice. We climbed up Castle Hill and saw spectacular views. Vielle Ville ( Old Nice) was great and we ate dinner there each evening! It was fun to walk around the streets. In the morning, we visited the Flower Market. It was a feast for your eyes, nose and taste buds. They had fresh produce.
We also visited Villefranche-sur-mer. It was like walking into a picture postcard! Gorgeous! I think that was probably our favorite! It is easily accessible by train- 15 minutes. From there, we walked ( a long walk) to St. Jean Cap Ferrat to see the Ephrussi-Rothchild Manor- lovely gardens!
We visited Eze Village. Again- another wow! It is a medieval village- wonderful!We took the train to Eze and then a 20 minute bus up the hill. The bus stop is right when you get off the train.
We also visited Antibes and loved that as well!
We also visited Cannes and Monte Carlo, too. We took the train from Niceville station for these.
If I can be of any help to others, I will try! You all helped us with wonderful tips to make our trip a memorable and magnificent experience! We fell in love with France, and hope to visit again!
