So my train journey around the French Riviera continues! I was excited to go to the famous Nice, where the rich and privileged go for their vacations. And it’s gorgeous – the Cote d’Azur has this colour of water that’s unbelievable.
But other than the rocky beach, the flower market….
And the old town…
There isn’t a lot to see in Nice. It sort of reminded me of a French version of Fort Lauderdale, Florida: pretty, sunny, popular with old people, very small and not a lot to do. So what do you do when you’re bored of a place?
And I especially liked doing this in late October.
But again….Cannes was very small, even smaller than Nice! It wouldn’t take more than a half day to do, so I also went to the lesser known town of Antibes, on the way back to Nice. I was really pleasantly surprised, too. It’s a small town on these rocky cliffs, with cute stores, an outdoor market, and a breathtaking walk along the cliff.
I don’t regret going. I had a lot of fun, and I was travelling with a great group of girls, but I think 3 days was just a little too long.
