Our trip to Nice was the first time we traveled outside of England (where our first son was born). It couldn’t have been a more perfect destination for a slow paced, gorgeous vacation with a 4 month old baby. Everyone was very kind and considerate, there were spacious parks, pathways for walks near the ocean, and reasonably priced lodging/food. Check out our last post about Paris if you want more information about the time change when traveling to Europe or what kind of transportation for baby.
Baby’s sleeping arrangements: One thing we always checked on with each hotel we booked, is if the hotel room came with a pack n play (More on lugging baby gear around the stone steps of Italy in a couple weeks!). It’s not fun, I repeat, not fun at all to be carting extra gear around. Thankfully, the hotel in Nice had a pack n play and was right upstairs from all the main attractions near the ocean. We even put Camden down to sleep for the night in his stroller and spent a couple of dinners out with him sleeping away in the pram (as the English call it!). The Urbo was a great stroller that lays completely flat like a bed for those nice naps and bedtimes on the go! It’s heavy, but durable! The strollers I have linked in the last post are great options for traveling with a lightweight stroller.
Attractions in Nice: Nice really is fun for all age babies/kiddos since a lot of the activities are outdoors or close to the ocean. It would be a nice (get it!) pit stop to make between busier cities such as Paris and London.
Acenseur du Chateau: Gorgeous views from the top!
Jardin Albert 1er: Big park with trees and a summer theatre.
Train to Monaco: This was a must do! The farmer’s market had some of the best strawberries I have ever had in my entire life! You have to be 18 to enter that famous casino, but, take turns with adults you are traveling. I definitely felt like I was in a James Bond movie. Don’t forget to check out the tracks that they have up in May for the Monaco race!
We hope you find this helpful if you are planning a Europe trip with babies or kids this year!
