We decided to head into Nice today for a bit of a look around before we head to Provence tomorrow. Nice is a pretty large city and is just a few minutes down the road from our little paradise in Villefrance-sur-mer.

We bought two tickets on Nice’s version of a hop-on-hop-off bus tour called Nice’s Grand Tour. There is audio commentary on a double decker bus that drives by many of the interesting sights that Nice has to offer. When you get to a spot that you want to explore on your own, you get off the bus walk around and get on another bus and continue on.

It was another hot day (close to 30 degrees I would think) and by 3:00 we were ready to head back to the hotel. We grabbed a sandwich for lunch and some pre-made salads for dinner.

We’ll be sad to say good-bye to our sea side hotel. We’ve spent a good number of hours just sitting on our balcony watching the world go by. Tomorrow we’re off to Aix-en-provence.
