Bonjour, Nice

Our first impression of Gare de Nice Ville was blissfully calmer compared to Marseille St Charles as we stepped outside. It’s a smaller station with less chaos except for our fellow arriving and departing passengers. Outside you’ll find plenty of shops and transport options to take you to your hotel or final destination.

Marseille to Nice by train

Train travel is a good option to venture out and around Côte d’Azur – the French Riviera. Sit back and enjoy the views, just let the train take you to your destination. Nothing to worry about with the daunting traffic and possible language barrier if you don’t speak French.

A visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau

I pre-booked online my day tour to Auschwitz-Birkenau and The “Wieliczka” Salt Mine on Viator before arriving in Poland. It cost AUD $121.11 and that included lunch, hotel pick up and drop off. Krakow Shuttle Tours was the company that handled the tour. All communication was done via e-mail. On the day of the tour, the driver/guide was extremely prompt for my hotel pick up, on the dot at 07:30. Vehicle was a Mercedes Benz mini bus, comfortable with a total of 8 passengers including myself.
