Ce matin nous sommes allées à l'Église Notre-Dame de l'Assomption à la colline de Cimiez et aux jardins du monastère de Cimiez. L'église est riche en œuvres d'art et il y avait un joli petit orchestre pendant la messe.
After mass, we went downtown to catch the bus to Eze. When we got to the bus station, the bus that was supposed to have left at 11:30 am was still there; the bus driver said that he was waiting for a mechanic and didn't know when he'd be leaving. Les filles ont eu faim donc nous avons décidé de manger avant de voyager vers Eze.
Before the appointed time, another bus driver and a mechanic showed up and tried to get the broken-down bus going, to no avail. They left and eventually returned 45 minutes after the bus was supposed to have left and this time were able to get the bus going. By now there was quite a crowd waiting, so we made sure to hustle on and get seats.
À Eze (un village médiéval), Mariah et Caitlyn ont aimé visiter les parfumeries. First, we went on the tour of the Galimard factory, but the chick doing the tour in English pretty much ran through it and didn't really provide any useful info. Ensuite, nous avons joint une visite guidée de 40 touristes chez Fragonard. This tour (in English - the girls' choice) was much better that the one at Galimard, but yet a bit abbreviated compared to the tour at the Fragonard factory that I did in Grasse the previous week. Caitlyn fell in love with one of the perfumes - Île d'Amour. :-)
Après la visite guidée, Mariah et Caitlyn ont décidé de rester en bas afin d'explorer les magasins, etc. et j'ai monté l'allée étroite vers le château et le jardin d'Eze. It was a bit disappointing as the alley is lined with shops and stone walls so that you can't see the beautiful view of the steep hillside down to the sea unless you go into one of the two restaurants or the swanky hotel at the top.
When I rejoined the girls at the bottom of the hill, they told me about a group of South Koreans that arrived dressed in traditional Korean costumes. La groupe a été partie quand je suis arrivée là.
We headed back to Nice, had supper and relaxed by the poolside into the evening.
