Day 1: we drove to Vienne, a smaller city in the southeast of France, only a couple of miles away from Lyon. We would spend one night in this place. The city is situated next to the Rhône and can show off some characteristic small streets and a few impressive old buildings. By coincidence, a local jazz festival was going on the day we were around, which bathed the city in a very relaxed and cosy atmosphere.
Day 2: back on the road, we headed to Nice, where we would spend one night as well. Nice might as well be my favourite city of the entire trip. It had everything you could ever wish for in a city on the coast: gorgeous architecture, charming shops and a fancy but not too posh coast promenade. I wish I could've stayed here a little longer.
Before exploring the city ourselves, we took a ride on this little train to get a clear view of which areas were most worth visiting.
