next up on our european adventure? NICE! and let me just say... we LOVED nice! it was young, vibrant, lively. the streets were abuzz morning, noon and night. the beaches were packed, the waterfront was beautiful, and we loved walking the streets of old town at night, watching every single restaurant just pour into the street with people. i kept telling ben, 'i feel like we are on a movie set'! HA. it really was that charming and beautiful :) it was also a great home base for some day trips we took (eze, antibes, monaco and cannes). AND, bonus, we had some of our favorite meals of the entire trip in Nice! would go back in a heartbeat.

  the street we stayed on

place massena, one of the largest squares in town

i had been dying for a savory crepe since we got to france! this is me finally finding one! :)

the main boulevard running along the waterfront

famous hotel negresco

beach life!

old town

the most authentic bakery, with the nicest people. they had no clue what i was ordering, and i have no clue what they gave me, but it was delicious! :)

the flower market

place garibaldi

the eiffel tower, in all it's glory

as i mentioned in my other paris posts here, here, and here, we ended every night with a bottle of wine at the champ de mars (the park stretching up to the tower). it wasn't until i began sorting through my photos that i realized we really had SO many capturing this iconic tourist site. and while these may seem redundant to you... they each capture a separate day, evening, or hour we spent just enjoying the beauty of paris, laughing at the people with selfie sticks, and dreaming about life. so, feel free to scroll quickly and take in an eiffle tower time lapse of sorts....

paris is such an amazing city. there is so much to see and to do, and yet much of the beauty can be missed if you don't allow yourself enough time to just relax, have no plans, and soak it all in. honestly, some of our favorite spots in paris were the random streets, cafes, and gelato spots.

because we had both been to paris before we didn't feel obligated to do every single tourist activity, and instead felt free to just go back to our favorite sites. we didn't go in notre dame, up the eiffel tower, or spend all day at the louvre. instead, we spent an afternoon at musee d'orsay, found new neighborhoods to stop for lunch and ended each night on the lawn in front of the eiffel tower drinking wine.

paris really is such a romantic and inspired city. full of beauty at every turn.

coming soon: the top things to do (and eat) in paris!
