Nice 9-10 Oct

FRANCE | Sunday, 7 November 2010 | Views [279]

About 2.5 hrs (by train) east of Aix is the coastal city of Nice. It’s a tacky city with its heavily made-up ‘historical’ buildings. Their ‘old’ city cannot compare to the towns of Sarlat nor Carcassonne. Its hub seems to be the many clusters of restaurants and many souvenir stores that try to lure tourists. We took the trams to try to see the outside of the city centre, unfortunately there is nothing worthwhile to report. Many European tourists seem to flock to Nice for the ‘beaches’. The narrow pebbled beaches don’t quite have the same appeal as the beaches in Australia. However it’s a good base to see the other expensive coastal cities or Monte Carlo (if these places excite you). In general, I can easily bypass Nice. (One good point was the delicious Tiramisu I had in one of the restaurants…fantastic…it came close to beating my sister’s Tiramisu…Crystal your Tiramisu is still #1…guess what I want for my birthday when I return to OZ :-)
