Hey guys I'm back with part 2 of my south of France journey. This time it's all about NICE! There are so many beautiful "Villes" in the south of France and Nice is one of those that I wanted to visit while being down there. Everyone kept expressing their concern over me wanting to go and kept asking if the situation was all right (regarding to the situation in Nice a couple of months back). What occurred was a tragedy, but that was months ago and I wasn't going to let that scare me from visiting.
From Cannes, we took a quick and inexpensive train ride to Nice. In total it was 20-30 minutes for about 5 euros,which was not bad at all. Once there, we all decided to walk around for a bit before heading towards the ocean. We passed by the many shops around, the water park, as well as Vieux-Nice which means old Nice. There were so many colorful buildings which was really great to see compared to Paris where they all seem to share color. We also had some Tapas at a restaurant near the ocean which was such a great idea. After all that walking it was a great relaxing break with an amazing vibe.
The highlight of my visit to Nice, however, was climbing to the top of Chateau de Nice and seeing the city from above. I can't even describe how amazing the view was. I really hope the pictures do it justice. There were two options to get to the top. The elevator or the stairs, which were both free, so we took advantage and went up via elevator and came down the stairs. We ended up spending a good hour at the top just admiring the views and the gorgeous water of the Cote d'Azur. Without a doubt, you bet I had to take some bomb pictures up at the top. I am literally that annoying friend that stops every 5 seconds in random spots to take pictures, snap, and vlog. I can't help it!
Hope you enjoyed the pictures above! There will be definitely be a vlog about my South of France adventures coming soon on youtube. Stay tuned! Until next time....
