French Riviera

Meet me where the sky touches the sea.” – unknown

You can call it the South of france… or The French Riviera… or the Cote d’Azur but one thing is for sure, this region of France is amazingly beautiful. Nice is the capital of the French Riviera and the city is called Nice la Belle (Nice the Beautiful). You can never go wrong when you plan a trip to Nice because they have one of the best weathers in the world. It gets 300 days of sunshine per year. How can you beat that? ☀️ ☀️ ☀️

The largest town in the French Riviera is Nice. Lucky that they cleaned the windows of the tour bus, because that was where we had to see the amazing scenery. You can see here, the yachts and boats docked in the perfectly blue waters in Nice.



The beach In Nice is a long stretch and it consists of 30 different beaches. Walking along the sprawling, miles long seafront, pebbled Promenade des Anglais.


In the Harbor (Le Port) there were pretty coloured buildings in a mountain setting.


All in all Nice looks very sophisticated and to top it all we went to this perfume laboratory where we got to see some of the production of soap… as well as given the opportunity to purchase perfume to take home as souvenir.


A bit of lunch then we were off to our next destination.

    We spent a couple of nights in Nice many years ago, to go to a football match in Monaco. We had a lovely hotel on the Promenade des Anglais but didn’t have time to see much of the city at all.
