We spent about two hours here before hopping on the train back to Nice. We made dinner and a lunch for the train tomorrow.

We arrived in Nice at about 3am and woke up for our walking tour at 11. They walked us through the old town and flower market. The clear blue water offered some amazing views. After the walking tour, a few of us hiked up the Castle Hill to a waterfall that had a view point on top of it. The hike was tiring, but the hilltop ...
