A Nice Day in Nice

We stopped in Villefranche last week, and I headed out with a few friends to catch the train to Nice.  We had to take tender boats from the ship to the port, and then it was just a 10 minute walk to the train station and an 8 minute train ride!

Once in Nice, we walked to a little shopping street to find food.  I felt obligated to try a Niciose salad in Nice, and was not disappointed!

After lunch, we slowly made our way to the beach.  A Finnish skater in the group went in for a swim, but I chose to just admire the beautiful blue water from the sidewalk.  The water was much too cold for me!

We unfortunately didn’t have much time, so after stopping at the beach, we wandered back through some shops, grabbed a quick drink, and headed back to the train station.

Although the day was very short, it was nice and relaxing.  I’d love to return to Nice to see more.
