Luke and I had a long week ahead of us! I must say, this trip was mostly Luke's idea. I had done research and asked around for tips and pointers, and asked what made the South of France so special. All I had heard was how amazing the area is, but I didn't understand why. I was told "it is an experience that cannot be explained", which I now agree with 100%. We based ourselves in Nice for the first four nights as it is centrally located along the coast for the other areas we wanted to see. Trains and buses made getting from one place to the next very easy. There isn't too much within Nice itself to see and do, but there are some nice restaurant and drinking options for the evenings after a day of exploring elsewhere.
Antibes, Monaco, and Eze Village... all coming soon in separate posts. The evenings were all spent in Nice as we enjoyed dinner, drinks, and just wandering around.

As we sat at the beachfront one evening, we watched airplanes fly in to Nice Airport once each minute. We were surprised at how busy the airport was (but then again, it is the main airport for the Cote d'Azur.
