Cinque Terre to Nice
Nice Travel Blog› entry 63 of 74 › view all entries
This was a pretty uneventful day. Not a whole lot to say. We left Riomaggiore in the morning for Nice. It was a bit confusing because you can't actually book a ticket from Cinque Terre to Nice because the train station in Riomaggiore doesn't do that apparently..? So we had to get oursselves to another town and then get on another train to Nice. But eventually we got there. We had booked the hostel called the Villa Saint Exupery. We got to the bus station and there was a bunch of other people on that bus staying at the same hostel. We all got off and apparently if you call the free number from the pay phone they send someone to pick you up. So they sent a van and we all loaded in there and headed up to the hostel. We got there and checked in. Our room was downstairs in a place apparently called 'the dungeon'. It was being renovated so it was pretty rough, but there was AC so it was all good. We went back upstairs and had some food at the hostel restaurant. The pizza there was actually really good. We met some people there and had some drinks. The beers are only 1 euro! Pretty cheap, kind of gross when they get warm, but for one euro you can't really complain.
