The bus from the airport took us fairly close to our Hotel. We still did have a bit of a walk and it was hot! Of course it was hot, it was the French Riviera after all !
After a quick check in we were in our room. We quickly changed and took off to head into Nice. We were not going to waste a minute as we were only there for a day. Reception said the easiest way was to walk to the train and catch it into the city.
Easy they said. They forgot about the road works happening all around where we were staying. It took us about 25 minutes to walk to the train station. It should have been at the most 10 minutes to Nice St Augustin Station. Yes you guessed it we missed the train and had to wait for the next one.
30 minutes later and the train arrived.
It was lovely seeing all the dogs waiting with their owners to catch the train. Love the way Europe allows pets onto the public transport. All well-behaved including their owners.
Our ticket allowed us to board into the economy class or level 2. It was only 1 stop into the centre of Nice.
Before we knew it our train had arrived at Gare de Nice Augustin.
Our holiday had started in earnest.
