Nice

I visited Nice in southern France for the first time recently. I wish I had visited the town sooner, it’s big, busy and the views are quite splendid. I reckon the town has something for everyone, from bargain Hostels to luxury Hotels, a beach and an Opera House.

 As this is the Med , and it’s been quite warm, the Town runs a Jellyfish catching service around the Bay.

Nice is famous for the Promenade des Anglais, and rows of blue chairs along the front.

There was a series of sailing races taking place, which on occasion, ran quite close to the beaches. Competition looked intense.

I took a Segway Tour of the front, and old Town. What you call a pile of Segways?

If you have not tried this form of transport, be advised that there are no brakes, and it’s quite difficult to fall off.

Nice has a waterfall, which is quite pretty, and from on high, there is a wonderful view of the whole Bay.

 Nice also has fountains for play, situated off Place Massena.

As the whole world seems to be in recession, you may be wondering where the money went. Some of it is here…
