Nice Vacation – Day Two – What? Nice in Nice??? :-)

DAY TWO –

22nd Feb – Friday – Train from Menton Garlavan  OMG – it’s RIGHT  next to the IBIS, for those that don’t know ( I didn’t)  so  we did not know this!!! – It’s not much of a walk from here to IBIS, but it is far from the Center Menton – which is where my story began 2 days ago with THE AUTOMATED HOTEL FROM HELL

(an unexpected frustration – and almost a huge rowl in trying to get in to this place.)

The tickets to the train to Nice from MENTON,  were automated – in french – &  David was able to get us 2 tickets from Garlavan – to Nice – no human contact once again. Not a problem.

You need to know about all this automation before you get there – as it requires some

knowledge of French, if the little english flag isn’t working.  )

 

Arrived into Nice Gare, very nice, well, not so nice, actually, but a huge big and very old station.  I imagine the 18th Century Russians that used to frequent this place as Nice was FOUNDED upon Russians, or they think they have founded Nice.   Truly.  Do not miss the largest Russian Orthodox Church right behind the Nice Train Station. It is closed on Mondays.

While walking the streets of Nice, we found, though it was cloudy and sometimes rainy, the most lovely of walks, down the LONGCHAMP street which leads from the TrainIMG_8779Station all the way practically to the sea – stopping at the old town, and it is truly a beautiful walk, many shops, many unusual vistas, and you won’t be disappointed in this walk at all, I promise!

The Galleries Lafayette was near, and though I don’t shop here at all because the prices are just too exorbitant, the items are beautiful to SEE, my favorite departments are the sheets and bedding as the sheets are as good as PORTHAULT……..

The tea in the little bistro on the 4th floor – lovely – fresh mint leaves too, so we got our money’s worth…….

  1. Remember our walk to the bank on Rue Alphonse Karr – very nice district with lots of interesting stores.
