With a mild Mediterranean climate, bright sunshine and an azure sea, Nice is one of France’s most popular tourist destinations. Laetitia began the day’s tour in this city on the Cote d’Azur that inspired artists Matisse and Chagall. Their itinerary included the Musee des Beaux-Arts, the Musee Marc Chagall, and the Musee Matisse. Afterwards they did a walkabout that included views of the cruise ships in the harbor and the topless beaches.
A few miles down the coast near Bileau-sur-Mer is Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat. After Monico, the small peninsula has the most expensive real estate in the world. British Actor, David Niven, who was in over 100 films from the 1930s to the 1980s, once lived there. Part of the coast walk is named after him. This dapper ladies’ man, who starred in Blake Edwards’ Pink Panther films and many others, was one of Laetitia’s grandmother’s favorite actors. Laetitia dedicated the day’s limerick to him.
That suave ladies’ man, David Niven
Oft’ played a Don Juan whose high livin’
And sexual prowess
Would lead to success
Of the kind for which some folks are shriven.
