Our First Day in the Stunning City of Nice, France! Part 1

I boarded a train from the bustling city of Milan, Italy, and headed towards the glamorous French Riviera. As I settled into my seat, the anticipation and excitement began to build up inside of me. I knew that in just a few hours, I would be greeted with beautiful coastal views, à la French Riviera.

However, our train ride was delayed upon arriving in Nice. Despite this setback, I knew that relaxation was just around the corner. Once we stepped off the train, we dropped off our bags and hit the town.

As we walked around, I couldn’t help but notice the temperature difference. It was a full 15 degrees warmer in Nice compared to Milan, and I was loving it. We stopped for a quick drink at Lou Pastrouli Bar in Place Du Palais De Justice square, sipping on delicious wine and taking in the sights and sounds of the bustling city.

Our view. It was great for people watching.

As we made our way towards our apartment, we were struck by the beauty of Place Garibaldi. The atmosphere was electric, with an energy that seemed to pulse through the city.

But that wasn’t the only thing that caught our attention. Christmas decorations still adorned the streets and buildings, lighting up the area with a magical glow. It was as if we had stumbled upon a winter wonderland, right in the heart of the city.

As we walked through the streets, we were surrounded by the sounds of carolers and the aroma of holiday treats. The festive cheer was contagious, and we found ourselves swept up in the joy and excitement of the season.

After an exhilarating hours of exploring the city, we had worked up quite the appetite. Our hunger led us to Les Garcons, a restaurant that promised to deliver an unforgettable dining experience.

As we arrived, we were struck by the elegant ambiance and cozy atmosphere of the restaurant. We quickly learned that dining in the French Riviera is an experience in itself. The restaurant had two options: a set menu or a la carte. After much deliberation, we decided to go all in and opted for the set menu.

Our taste buds were in for a treat as we were presented with a mouth-watering array of dishes, each more delicious than the last. From savory appetizers to delectable entrees and decadent desserts, the meal was a culinary masterpiece.

I had the lamb w/ potatoes. It was delicious!
For dessert, sorry, I can’t recall the name of it. Although, chocolate was involved with caramel toppings. Yum!

As we savored each bite, we couldn’t help but feel grateful for this unforgettable experience. It was a true feast for the senses, and we knew that we had made the right decision by choosing the set menu.

With our stomachs full and our hearts content, it was time to call it a night. We had an incredible first day exploring the city, indulging in delicious cuisine, and soaking up the vibrant energy of Nice. Our journey was far from over, and we knew that there were countless experiences and surprises waiting for us in the French Riviera. And we were ready to take on whatever the city had in store for us.
