Nice was the first séjour during my study abroad expérience in Aix.
I was hypnotisée from the moment I stepped foot on the pebble plage, or beach.
Sure, it wasn’t the most plage idéale, but it was a nifty one!
After walking down the plage, I found myself on the Quai des États-Unis:
But, I wasn’t in Nice just for their plages…
I also went to the marché
and I enjoyed a culture spectacle
while I was admiring some bonbons…
and debating whether or not to buy some dried tomates!
As I embraced this Baroque ville,
I took avantage of the Journées Européennes du Patrimoine: I toured churches, palais, and musées that were not normalement ouverts au public.
It was an amazing, un-photographed expérience.
But, my Nice-acquisition-de-l’histoire didn’t stop at these belle places, I also entrée in Palais Lascaris (the only one that allowed photographie – sans flash, bien-sûr!).
5 Raisons to Hurt Your Pieds Walking on a Plage in Nice:
- The water is crystal claire!
There’s no better way to relax your sore pieds than taking a dip in the claire water!
- The vue!
The vue of Nice from the plage is breathtaking!
- A lot of plage, few people.
I guess a pebble plage doesn’t attract as many (there are still touristes) touristes like a sable plage, thus leaving you with plenty of rock to soak up the soleil!
- Pic-nique free of sable!
Ever get tired of finding sable in your sandwich? Ou worse, not being able to tell if it’s sel (salt), or sable mixed in with your chips? A pebble plage will let you eat in paix!
- Calming vagues (waves).
If you like surfing, then Nice is not for you. However, if you’re up for a nice relaxing stroll on the pebbles or a nice relaxing dip in the water, then Nice is definitely for you!
Soaking up the soleil with some lavande ou olive noir (ou stracciatella) flavored gelato is my kind of idée of a
vacance université outing.
Add the gorgeous volets…
and, bien-sûr, the musées, palais, and churches for a bit of fun hors du soleil and voilà! The parfait vacance! ♦
