European Vacation – September 26/19 – Part 14 – Le Petit Train Tour – Shake and Bake

We knew this would be a hokey tour, when we decided to take it after our Viatour Foodie Tour of Nice. Nonetheless, we were hot, we were tired and we were full of all the goodies we could possibly eat on our food tour.

Le Petit Train tour starts along the Promenade des Anglais at Esplanade Albert 1er. For 10 Euro, you get a 45 minute tour through parts of Nice. The train is electric and equipped with on-board audio in several languages to explain the history of Nice. This part is good. The fact that they cram 4 people onto one bench is not. The two outboard people get the photo ops………..but, those same two outboard people (I was one) get baked in the afternoon sun on at least half the tour. I think my enjoyment of the tour would have been better if there were only 2 people to a seat and if there was some shade.

Here are the pix.

  1. Can’t believe that even after spending 5 full days in Nice, we missed out on so many thins. This is the first time I’ve heard about the Blockhead at the Museum of Modern Art – thanks for educational info Allan and have a fantastic day! Aiva

    1. We walked through the outdoor garden at the art museum the first time we were in Nice, but have not yet made it inside. Too much to see and do, I guess. We called this sculpture the blockhead, before we knew that that was its real name. Glad you enjoyed and thanks for reading Aiva. Allan
