Photos in Nice, France, 2001

by Gerald Oskoboiny


I went to Nice for some meetings in November 2001. Here are some photos and notes about my trip:

Boscolo Hotel Plaza, Nice

I stayed at the Hotel Plaza (12 Avenue de Verdun, +33.(0)4.93.16.75.75) from Oct 31 to Nov 11. It's a nice hotel but the food wasn't very good for a 4-star hotel in France.

One of the nice things about it is the great park across the street (Albert 1st Garden); it has a huge grassy area that's perfect for hucking a disc around :)

The rooms on the fifth floor have huge balconies with tables and lounge chairs. (I think those are the "sea view" rooms.)

Saturday: sightseeing in Nice

On Saturday Nov 3 we did some sightseeing around Nice (walked up to the top of a big hill to check out the view):

Afterwards, we played pool at L'Escalier Pub in Nice. I lost 100FF on a game with some Irish dude. I was kicking his butt, then missed a couple easy shots and he made four good shots in a row to win.
