Cannes is so relaxing away from the hustling and bustling of Nice and the unreal life of Monaco.
I arrived at Cannes late in the night and wanted to take a cab. However, a local cab driver thought they could outsmart a tourist like ‘moi’, charging more than usual for a cab fare. Luckily and smartly, I scouted around for assistance and was able to find help from the information desk at the airport. I was given a cab timetable and was told fares were as little as 5 Euro. This was really a fantastic bargain.
The next morning, I took a stroll to the City Centre and chilled by the beach. The scenery was really breathtaking (a well deserved holiday ‘I thought,’ lol). I immediately noticed the glamour and style floating around Cannes. On the promenade de la Croisette there are numerous designer boutiques, swanky bars, restaurants and lavish hotels. It was interesting to see so many kinds of dogs placed in prams. I also explored a few places such as St Honorat Island, St Marguerite Island and the Museum. Onwards, I took a trip to Nice, did a lot of sightseeing and rode the Segway. Nice was really busy, but the coastline is to die for 🙂
Nice – Promenade des Anglais
I visited Monaco; a true place of affluence and ostentation. Furthermore, I visited other sight attractions such as ‘The Palace,’ ‘Aquarium’ and the famous ‘Monte Carlo Casino.’ I walked around the city for a while – it was really a beautiful experience. In London, I rarely see luxury fast cars driven on our roads. However, in Monaco, I saw so many.
- The view from Nice to Monaco is stunning and I would recommend taking a ride in a car or local bus.
- Always explore the city by doing a few tours or take local buses to have a feel of the city.
- Travel advisor can also provide good reviews on a specific location and hotels.
