On to our second day in Nice, we’d originally planned to take a train for the day to Menton, a little town famed for its lemon trees about 15 minutes East of Nice but we really needed a day just to relax and enjoy Nice, so we decided we’d hit Menton up next time.
We ended up having the best day just on our own starting with room service for breakfast overlooking Nice and the Mediterranean from our balcony. We slept in, rested, hung around the room and then finally ventured out to head up Castle Hill. This hill which you can see from pretty much everywhere in Nice is famed for its views over the city. So we walked along the ocean until we found the elevator that takes you part way up, then walked the rest of the way up. There is a beautiful waterfall up there and it’s truly a gorgeous area, but the view from the top, seriously takes your breath away.
I’m so glad we made it up here and it really shouldn’t be missed when you’re in the area.
Next we headed back down and wandered along the Quai des Etats-Unis along the water, taking in the breathtaking views of the Mediterranean and watching people go about their days.
That evening we ventured into Monaco… but more to come on that in tomorrow’s post!
Headed to France?
