Nice (getting there).

29/4/07

-17 °C

The story continues.
We caught the train from Venice to Milan without incident.(First time that we had to share our cabin, train was completely full).
Arrived at Milan station, huge building, massive actually and extremely busy.
Again asked directions, finally understanding that we had to go downstairs to the underground, and travel on one line for about 7 stops, then change to another line for a further 7 stops to reach our bus terminal.
No problems quite straightforward in the end.
Arrived at bus station at 2.30 with bus leaving at 7.00pm.
Luckily we had lunch at the main station, as not much on offer.
Bus Ok but seats not very comfy, stopped at Genova for 45 mins , so had something to eat.
Encountered the French Police at the border checking passengers and passports, no issues. Finally arriving in Nice at 12.30, with the help of a local obtained a taxi, and found hotel.
Hotel in a very good location, in between the sea and station.
No trains to Monaco today only buses, but fully booked with many tourists, due to long weekend, so we will go tomorrow.
Weather beautiful, clear blue sky, lovely city.
Heading for lunch and some local sightseeing.
Bye for now......
