Day 11 – Cannes
I see a little silhouetto of a man.
The earliest of starts today, but fortunately our hotel was right next to the airport, so we could easily shuttle over there and check in for our first flight. A bit of breakfast, then a fifty minute flight to Lyon, before transferring to another flight to Nice (thirty minute flight). From there, we had a twenty minute drive to get to our apartment in Cannes.
We seem to be very central which is great, and Cannes seems small, but jam-packed. Nice buildings and streets, lots of shops and restaurants around, the beach a short walk away. Quite a nice little city.
After we had settled in, we headed out for some lunch at an Italian restaurant, La Pizza Cresci. It is by the water, well-priced and very generous with their portions. They had some really good pizza.
As usual, it is very hot here, so we soon headed back to the apartment to cool down and rest, before the others went to do some shopping. Later in the afternoon, we headed back out to go down to the beach and catch the sunset. The streets were so quiet at this point, as all the shops had closed down. There were more people down by the water though, filling the seaside restaurants.
Here are a bunch of sunset shots – some stunning landscapes and colours this evening.
