Nice, France a wonderful city to visit. I go there for about 4 days every year. I fly from Las Vegas to Paris every year for a 22 day vacation. I’m retired so I have 22 days free. I take the TVG train from Gare Lyon to Nice. It’s about a 6 hour trip through beautiful countryside. You arrive at Nice Ville train station on Avenue Thiers. Don’t be shocked at the area around the station , it is grubby but only right there. The station faces the sea, so just walk a few blocks and your in wonderful Nice. My suggestion is walk the 10 blocks and your at the sea. A wonderful sight. The Promenade des Anglais is the place to walk the length of Nice. BTY the weather is always perfect. Not like Paris. In May I would leave the cold and raining Paris and go down to Nice where it is always sunny and perfect.
Again I stayed at the Hotel Armenonville on avenue des Fleurs, a short walk from the train station (Le Gare). The hotel is and old very large house turned into a hotel. It is a bit back off the street and very quiet. And affordable too. The staff is so friendly and helpful. I love having breakfast each morning out in the garden. Wonderful. Trees, bushes, flowers, very nice. I stay here every year.
At the start of my day, I usually walk Promenade Anglais all the down and up the hill and past Le Chateau and down the hill to the port area where all the big boats are docked. Then back up the hill and over to Cours Saleya. Some days I eat here at one of the great café’s. There all great. Then up to Place Massena. A beautiful area. Fountains in the middle and surrounded by some very fashionable stores for shopping. I walk west , down Rue Massena which becomes Rue de France and back to Boulevard Gambetta and 4 blocks up to my hotel.
At night I walk back to Rue de France and down towards Messana again. Plenty of great cafés and restaurants to eat in. Sit outside and eat a pizza. BTY, I have lived in Las Vegas for 50 years and was born in New York and I’m telling you, the best pizza in the world is here. The Italian heritage and the French cooking. After a wonderful dinner I walk one block back to the sea and Promenade des Anglais and the wonderful walk, all the way back to Gambetta. I do this for 3 days, every time. I love Nice.
