There are few countries in the world that you can travel between a rainy city and a colorful beach town in just a few hours. Particularly, the route between the north and south of France. It is a magical country that has everything. You can wake up in Paris – hopefully it’s a rare blue-sky day – go for your morning baguette, maybe see the views from the top of Notre Dame, and then hop on a train and have your toes in the sand by l’apero (aka French pre-dinner). This country revolves around food so of course they have pre-dinner!
Visiting both the north and south in one visit is something I’ll never forget. Paris has a unique monochrome beauty that is unrivaled but the visual transition when traveling to the Côte d’Azur is like watching a black and white movie turn color. If you want an idea of the experience, scroll through this blog really fast. You’ll see what I mean! But then actually go to France, eat all the cheese, and get lost in the winding, colorful streets of Menton.
