Last week I was in Nice and Cannes and it was such a pleasure given that fall has officially arrived in Zurich. It felt like summer was just beginning in the Cote d’Azur, as there were people on the beach wearing shorts, flip flops and sun dresses were seen at every turn.
I arrived in Nice and after I finished my work day, I walked down to the rocky white beach and sat down to read my book. It was incredibly relaxing, hearing the waves lap upon the shore and watching the sun slowly dip into the water out of the corner of my eye.
Being in Nice, by the water, I tried to dress as “nautical” as possible. Although sadly my husband was not with me so I didn’t have a good photographer on hand. 🙁
I have been relying on TripAdvisor a lot more lately for my dinner recommendations, and I have found the 4th – 10th down on the list are always available and never disappoint. In Nice, I ate at Le Petit Cafe. I had a delicious salmon dinner with a lovely chilled rose wine. Rose is always best in the south of France as French rose is often from the region of Provence.
The next day I was in Cannes and had dinner at Da Mimmo. It was a delicious pizza restaurant where the waiters dressed adorable with 1920s newsboys caps on. The pizza was divine and so was the weather.
Cannes is also lovely and these beaches have sand instead of the smooth white stones like in Nice. It’s easy to get to this beautiful paradise from Zurich and completely worth it. I was thankful for the extended summer treat and I very much look forward to when I can return.
