I can recommend one particular trip to anyone flying to Nice: take the train from Nice to Cap Ferrat and visit the Villa Rothschild, a strikingly beautiful pale pink building. It has the most wonderful gardens – Japanese, Spanish, Italian and French, as well as a rose garden and sculptures. The views of the bay and the yachts are breathtaking. Another must when continuing the train journey is to stop in Monaco and visit the Casino – Lady Luck might just smile on you! And then it’s another half-hour by train to Ventimiglia, which has some fabulous markets. All this can easily be done in a day, and it truly is the most amazing experience.
