Nice is the place to go for world class pastries. I had an apartment for about a month in the center of town. This was enough time to get to know the city some. One of my favorite past times was going to bakeries to try the different pastries. About every day I would try one or two pastries. There were bakeries everywhere in this town. I had my favorites that I would frequent. There was a bakery down a narrow street off of Promenade des Anglais that had excellent huge macarons. Even though I walked a bunch I still gained weight. The pastries were all to blame.
