When you land at Nice Côte d’Azur International Airport, it’s like you’re about to land in the sea, then out of no where a tiny runway appears.
After the spooky yet safe landing the next thing to do was head to Rue Saint-Siagre to meet Salvatore to check into the flat for the next 5 days.
The first thing you notice about Nice is how beautiful every thing is, the architecture, mountains, sea, beaches and hidden mountain top waterfalls. Nice is really small and you can do all the tourist spots in about a day. Out of peak season it’s very quite, not much to do apart from ride bikes on the sea front, eat baguettes and cheese and drink a lot of read wine.
The next destination is Cannes one of the best known cities of the French Riviera, famous for the hotels, cars, beaches and the Cannes film festival.
45 min train ride Gare de Nice-Ville to Cannes at around 5 euro. For such a small town there is quite a bit to do, Iles de Lerins, La Croisette, Le Suquet, Rue Meynadier, Eglise Notre Dame d’Esperance, Musee de la Castre, Plage du Martinez to name a few.
My favorite is the Star-Studded Floor where I found my hand twin Jean Claude Van Damme
Monaco is a 15min train ride from Gare de Nice-Ville. Monaco is a tiny independent city-state on France’s Mediterranean coastline. Famous for Grand Prix motor race, which runs through Monaco’s streets once a year. Pretty much everyone that lives there is beyond rich.
There is quite a lot to do here if you have a lot of money, but for most porper’s you have to settle for the amazing views, the yacht’s you will never own and the free attractions.
The Japanese Gardens is my favourite, you can feed some pretty rad large fish with your hand.
