Living about 45 minutes from Nice definitely has its perks. Once again we were truly in vacation mode and by the time we were out the door and into Nice it was time for lunch and a glass of rosé. We ate at Movida, which has a cute little patio that looks right out on the Promenade des Anglais.
After lunch we walked up and down the promenade and into a few shops.
This was right during the time that the Eurocup was beginning and Nice was where one of the stadiums was located.
To this day we are still talking about this gelateria that we went to, Fenocchio. It was absolutely amazing and had the most unique flavours…cactus gelato, anyone? Anyone who knows me can figure out that I went for the Mojito gelato, I added some raspberry as well. Fabien had a scoop of the rose and lemon gelato (mine was better).
Our next stop was the beach, remember this was in early June, so the water was still a bit too chilly for this Canadian. Fabien however, did go for a dip and I thoroughly enjoyed watching him hobble back up the beach on the pebbles.
After our (Fabien’s) swim we went for tapas at El Merkado. We basically ordered every vegetarian item on the menu, with some sangria of course. And for dessert… churros, one of my all time faves. I don’t think Fabien even got a chance to try one…oops.
