Last month my best friend Massimo and i booked very spontaneously our short-trip to Cannes at the French Riviera. We flew w/ Airberlin from Dusseldorf to Nice. As accommodation we’ve chosen a huge room w/ balcony in the 4* Hotel Victoria, which is located directly in the city centre of Cannes, from where one could see the beach & the Main Shopping Street ‚La Croisette.
The Hotel was very quite & nobody used the Pool except us..
On our first day, we’ve visited Cannes & for Dinner we went to an Italian restaurant for eating una pizza napoletana.
When you are in Cannes or generally at the French Riviera, you definitely have to go to Monaco & Italy for at least one day!! In Monaco you should visit the Grimaldi’s Castle. For Italy, Ventimiglia is perfect, because it takes only 25 minutes from Monaco. The City Centre is located on a hill. And it’s a typical Italian atmosphere!! Especially for italian food & shopping, it’s worth it!!
Another day we went to Nice by train. It costs only 14€ in total and takes like 1 hour from Cannes.
The city is very huge and beautiful. But the most amazing thing is the beach!!!! I think thanks to Nice beach, the name ‚Côte D’azur‘ is justified!! You have to climb up the Castle in Nice as well, cause from there, i guess, you have the most breathtaking view.
