Out and about in Nice

Walking along the Promenade des Anglais, was great to look up at all the wonderful old buildings and Hotels ~ 

I do love the Architecture, with its grandiose detail and ornate fancy iron work. 
Imagine having an apartment in this one overlooking the azure sea

From the elegant Epoque, Baroque, to Neo classical style
It's amazing how colourful the buildings are with paintwork of every imaginable colour.
A happy place just because of that ... seeing all the gorgeous hues.

There were tall palm trees blowing in the breeze, blue sky and lots of sunshine

The famous  Le Negresco Hotel overlooks the beach


I found this old maison charming, painted in a soft pastel pink with pretty shutters

We took a ride on the open- deck bus and got to see around the old part of the City built on the hill and around the port

Lots of very posh yachts and boats were moored in the marina


If you are feeling energetic, you can rent a bike from the rack to give you the freedom to ride around and see more of the city

You can see why this is one of the most popular places to spend a holiday - mild climate and so much to see. 
I always appreciate you coming by and thanks for the lovely comments and to new followers.
Hope you all enjoy your week
