The first stop of more than 7 week European trip was Nice, a famous city on French Riviera in southern France. Nice is second largest tourist city in France after Paris and one of most charming seaside resorts in Europe and world, it has a typical Mediterranean climate and warmth all year round, blue Mediterranean Sea and majestic Alps - city. Eternal attraction. The sacred history and culture of ancient Rome, romantic scent of lavender fields of Provence and exotic Mediterranean cuisine. No matter from what point of view, Nice is an absolute holiday paradise in hearts of French.
Arriving at airport, we rented an SUV and set off on a trip to south of France.
This is hotel we stayed at with an unbeatable sea view.
The French Riviera is located on Mediterranean coast in southern France, starting from Toulon in west, passing through Nice, Cannes and Monaco, and reaching border between France and Italy in east. bright sun, blue coastline and pleasant climate.
Wells, palaces, churches and museums of Place Massena.
The beautiful blue coastline makes people linger. Climbing castle and looking from east is best angle to appreciate Angel Bay. Binhai's great circular arc is almost as graceful as circular plan, and tips at both ends resemble a pair of angel wings reaching out to embrace sea. Gradient sea water and splashing white waves...
Almost every tourist who comes to Nice has to climb Castle Hill to enjoy panoramic views of beautiful scenery of Nice and Bay of Angels. Countless ships moored in port form a beautiful pattern.
There are many churches and baroque houses in old town of Nice, filled with Italian life and feelings. The buildings in old town are brightly colored and winding and narrow streets lead into hills. There are many specialty shops, restaurants and bars along road.
Leaving beautiful Nice, next stop is Monaco. Driving along beautiful coastline all way, beautiful scenery on side of road is so dizzying that I exclaimed over and over again: “This picture can only be experienced by driving.”
A few hours later, we finally arrived at Monte Carlo in Monaco, a southern European city-state located in southwestern Europe, surrounded by France on three sides and bordered by Mediterranean Sea to south. It is not only second smallest country in world. It is also one of countries with highest per capita income. Mainly based on gaming, tourism and banking.
When an F1 Formula One race is being prepared, temporary stands are set up on both sides of road.
