Nice is a popular destination for honeymooners. The views are gorgeous, the beach is alluring, the food is delicious and the shopping is so very French. So it’s not surprising that a few of the people we have met along the way mentioned that they were stopping in Nice as part of their honeymoon. We met a fantastic young newlywed couple from Canada living across the hall from us in our airbnb apartment. It was wonderful to speak English and we enjoyed gushing about various wedding/love stories.
Monaco is just a little ways down the road from Nice – so how could we pass up the opportunity to see another country? We debated the best way to do it. We’d heard lovely things about the train that winds through the mountains or there are tour companies that offer bus trips. We didn’t want to rent another car and the hike seemed a bit too far. I read some blogs about people who biked the whole way, and the idea appealed to me. Although I am NOT a strong biker and I am insanely glad I didn’t rent us road bikes. We instead chose to rent electric bikes.
