French Riviera in 4 Days

Back in July I had the chance to go to Nice thanks to a food blogging opportunity : they would cover all the flight tickets to the hotel for me and I could bring a plus one, so I chose to bring my mom! Most of you know how she had a hard time this year and I figure this was an amazing time for her to recover and enjoy life again. That’s where our adventure to Nice begins!


We landed in Marseille and had a few hours of free time before our train to Nice, so we decided to take a toll in their Old Port. It was super hot, record breaking hot in Marseille. 37  to 40 degrees celsius! I was boiling. But the view is very pretty and the food was delicious. Like Anthony Bourdain said : “maybe it’s because the French don’t seem to want you to go to Marseille, and what they mean by that is that it’s too Arab, too Italian, too Corsican, too mixed up with foreignness to be truly and adequately French.. It is a glorious stew of a city, smelling of Middle Eastern spices, garlic, saffron and the sea.”

I approve 100%, as the second largest city in France it is charming in every single way, I can eat one of the best gelato as well as eat a delightful bouillabaisse. If you go there as a curious food lover, you will be satisfied.


DAY 2 – NICE (day)  – MONACO (night)

We started the day with a delicious French breakfast prepared by Emma, a local foodie, the table was garnished with amazing smells and flavours: from lavender yogurt, to buttery croissants, you can find everything.

Every balcon view in Nice is dreamy! Got that French vibe ver much going on you know haha.



You can’t go to Nice without trying their beaches, one of my favourite waters : clear and super clean. No sands though. LOL Be prepared to bring on some sandals in the water.


We took the train to Monaco at night because we heard it’s more charming and enchanting. But to be honest, Monaco was the most disappointing city of all haha. The city may be rich but it’s so empty practically nothing to do of you’re not into the Casino  and Party vibes. My Mom and me, we are far from that type of crowd haha.



We ate breakfast at the most beautiful rooftop terrace restaurant in Nice  thanks to my food blogging sponsoring, the food was delicious and the view is to die for.

Around 2PM, we headed to Cannes ! The city of Fashion and we couldn’t wait to see their beaches either.


Also as part of my food blogging tour, I had the chance to dine at the One Michelin Star restaurant in Cannes, feeling very lucky to be able to share this meal with my Mom !



Last day in Nice and we went on a snorkelling adventure! It was my first time and I was very scared because although I can swim, I can’t float. I learned it and somehow I just can’t LOL This experience was so cool, we get to see the little fish and the water was so clear.


Before heading home, we wanted to make one last stop to eat some truffle and pasta, truffle is one of the specialties in Nice and I had to come taste it.


That’s it for this post ! 🙂 Did you ever wanted to discover the South of France? Where did you go this summer?

I also went to Punta Cana right after this trip, would you guys want to see on that as well? See you next time 😀

  1. I love the photos. Yout both looked like you had so much fun.
    This summer my husband and I tried to travel but the monsoon in India was a pain in the plans’ ass. We ended up going to a hill resort in Madikeri, IN, for just a few days. It was pouring the entire time.
    But we did manage to go the Maldives in May and to Sri Lanka a month later. So I think we shouldn’t complain. 🙂


  2. It’s so great to see your mum smiling and enjoying this so much, and you as well of course. This was an awesome posts, and the pictures were terrific! Thanks for sharing your trip with us, and I am happy that you both had such an amazing time! 😊


  3. You and your mom both look gorgeous. What smiles! so nice of you to treat her to a little holiday and make her enjoy the best food of the south of France!


  4. Lovely photos and glad you enjoyed your summer vacation! I’ve never been to this part of France, I think it’s the perfect holiday destination ❤


  5. Ah what a fantastic post! I followed your adventures in the South of France on instagram and I loved all of your pictures so, so much. I’m so happy you had such a great time there ❤ ❤
