France & Italy 2014 - Cannes & Monaco

After a great FULL day in Nice we trained the next morning to Cannes then onto Monaco.  We had such a wonderful time at both places.   The trip was everything I wanted it to be and more which is always good when you plan a trip for a couple years...














Next stop is Santa Margherita

France & Italy 2014 - Nice

France & Italy
September 5-20, 2014
Lufthansa flight Airbus A380-800.  
Nice

I have been planning this trip for a couple years.  Yes, we did go on several trips in between.. but this one required 2 weeks vacation and more money.  FINALLY we went..  and it was WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!!!  We had the best time.  I know this will be a LONG review in several parts.  







We stayed in Nice for 3 nights and we LOVED it.  The hotel Le Petit Trianon was a great location with shops and restaurants near and close to bus/train station.  Just a few steps from the water.  Originally I wasn't planning on staying in Nice however we were planning on Monaco and Cannes so this was a great base for the 3 days..  



Le Petit Trianon


The first day we went to an Antique fair they have every Monday in the Old Town.  Then from there we did the Castle Hill walk which has great views.  We also squeezed in the Rothschild Villa in St-Jean Cap-Ferrat






A few shots out and about Nice











We loved Nice...  everything about it.  Ready to go back :)

Last Sunset

Our last day in Antigua... flying out that afternoon...  had a relaxing breakfast then packed up


We headed to to the airport EARLY.  Since it had taken so long arriving through customs we were not sure how long it would take.  I think it was like 15 minutes.  

I did do a little Black Friday shopping :)
