Today we traveled to Nice with a first stop in The walled city of Avigon with the famous Pont or bridge in English. It was rainy but we saw the Palace of the Popes and wandered around this lovely old city.
Next stop was Monaco. The highway into the city is very hilly and has many tunnels. The views on the way are breathtaking ! The Mediterranean Sea with the harbor filled with yachts and a few cruise ships. The town was very busy as they are getting ready for the Grand Prix this weekend. We saw so many very expensive cars we couldn't believe it. Ferrarris, Porsches, Aston Martin, Bentleys. A Bentley in a showroom had a sticker price of €186,000 !! Canadian dollars about $240,000.
We saw the Royal Palace, home of the Grimaldi family that has ruled since for hundreds of years. Dinner was in the old part of the city,sitting outside at a restaurant called Fredy's. We had a Caprese salad then salmon with potatoes & veg. Dessert was a mousse with chocolate sauce & whipped cream. Tres bon !
Then we arrived at our hotel in Nice. We went down to the beach and walked around a bit, stopping of course for a glass of wine- rose this time since we are in Nice!
I am having a problem adding more than one picture- this is the Pont d'Avignon.
