After visiting Marseille for the Formula 1 Grand Prix it was time to hit the beach and I couldn’t think of a better place than to head to French Rivera. We also went to Nice so we could take a day trip to Monaco without breaking the bank.

Day 1 – Train Travel & Relax 06.25.2018
My second experience taking train travel, which is so more convenient than any other form of travel in my opinion. We took Trenitalia which was €24 one-way and about three hours. I had read reviews online that Trenitalia wasn’t very good but I had no problems and would recommend them. I did see in some negative reviews that their trains didn’t have AC, so you may want to reach out to them directly to confirm. I did buy my tickets from the US without using a VPN so the cost was probably higher than if you bought them in Europe.
Arriving in Nice we checked into our Airbnb which was by far one of the nicest ones I have stayed at and had an amazing view of the beach. You can check out the place here. If you’re new to Airbnb be sure to use my referral code to get $50 off your first stay.
Day 2 – Beach & Cruise to Monaco 06.26.2018
First full day in Nice and we spent the majority of the morning relaxing on the beach which was direct across the street from our Airbnb, Plage de Carras. I was surprised to find that the beach was covered in rocks instead of sand.
After the beach, we spent the afternoon in Old Nice and near the Quartier du Port. We came across a tour guide that had last minute open seats at a discount to take a cruise to Monaco and back, we didn’t get dropped off but got take a relaxing boat ride in the French Rivera. I don’t remember how much we paid but the current cost to do this is €29, if you want to get off and explore Monaco the cost is €39.50.
Ending the night by keeping my Hard Rock Café tradition alive, eating at everyone I come across.
