After a week hiking through the Alps, we were ready for some beach time. From Chamonix, we went straight to the airport in Geneva and took a quick flight over to Nice. Our plan was to spend one night in Nice, two in Monaco, and another back in Nice before heading out.
We spent some time in both Nice and Cannes, exploring each city as much as we could, but I think we really enjoyed Monaco the most. It was the prettiest of the three and was more our speed. We found a few amazing restaurants, including a tiny one run by a married couple that had an affinity for all things Japanese. And gambling in the Monte Carlo Casino was pretty slick too.
We had a blast in the Riviera, but it was a little crowded while we were there and I was definitely ready for ten days in our next destination: Spain!
