After a typical long London winter, we wanted to get away for the Easter Break and get some sun. We chose reasonably well with a long weekend in the Southern Coast of France. We flew into Nice on Good Friday and found some sunny weather upon arrival. We changed into shorts and t-shirt and went to explore Nice. We walked along the beautiful big promenade and headed towards the Russian Cathedral which looked magnificent from the outside but unfortunately it was closed. We instead went for a walk around the old town of Nice and around into the port which was in the next bay. In the narrow lanes of the old town we found a place for dinner where they had a set menu of Nicois food (the local food). The next day was also sunny but with a pretty cool sea breeze. We hung out at the beach in the morning for some relaxation. After lunch we walked up to Castle Hill where we got some amazing views over Nice. It was then time for a gelato stop at the famous Fenocchio followed by a few wines in the park while reading (the wind had got too strong on the beach). On Easter Sunday we headed to Monaco where we saw some amazing views as we drove across the cliffs from Nice. We spent some time hanging out at the beach in Monaco before going for a walk around checking out the sites and the large amount of money in the area shown off in fancy cars, yachts and hotels. Although the food at the places we looked wasn't too expensive. The next day we took the train out to Cannes. The weather unfortunately wasn't quite as nice so we spent the day exploring Cannes and taking a pretty cheesy and touristy train around the city. Whilst most of the town seemed normal the beach strip was where all the money was to be spent in the fancy hotels and up to €450 for a sun lounger for the day! Unfortunately, it was then time to go back to London and the cold.
