In 2014, I spent seven weeks traveling. A few weeks with friends in Spain and France and then a few weeks visiting Zander when he was working in London and Iceland. I wrote and published travel guides for Madrid, Barcelona, Segovia and Marseille but then got distracted and never posted the rest! Well, today I’m back and sharing my photos of Nice! I couldn’t just let them sit in a folder on my computer, they needed to see the light of day! Plus, I’m getting a bit of a travel bug and find myself scrolling through them a lot recently. We headed to Nice after Marseille and it was a much-needed change of pace. We took the opportunity to slow down and really enjoy some down time just strolling the streets and drinking rosé on the beach. I was actually scheduled to head home half way through our time in Nice, but decided to stay with my friends and continue onto Paris with them!

Things to do in Nice
- Beaches – there are TONS of options but we spent time at Plage Beau Rivage, Blue Beach, Opéra Plage and Castel Plage
- La promenade du Paillon – we grabbed a pizza (from a place across from Bistro Du Fromager) and ate in the park
- The Castle Park (Parc du Chateau) – make sure to see what time the park closes! We almost got trapped inside overnight… it’s one of those stories that takes a few months to become funny, it was terrifying at the time!
- Port Lympia
- Place Charles Félix – a square full of markets and restaraunts
- Promenade des Anglais – this is a walking path that runs the full length of the beach area
- Galerie des Ponchettes
We stayed in Vieille Ville on Rue Droite – our Airbnb is no longer listed but there are lots of other great options! Use this link for $20 off your first Airbnb booking!
