We woke up on May 5, our last full day in Nice, with a decision to make: Do we take a short bus/train ride to get a day at the beach in Villefranche-sur-Mer? Do we hop on the train to check out what's supposed to be a beautiful inland artsy town in St Paul de Vence? Do we take the hour long bus ride to what is supposed to be a must visit although less visited, Eze Village? After seeing the weather for the day, we decided against the beach due to a cloudy forecast. So then it was between Eze Village and St Paul de Vence. Given we are not artsy folks, and we were about to head inland for a few days, we decided to stay along the coast and go to Eze Village. I'm pretty sure that May 5, 2015 was the closest I have ever been to heaven.
