Hi all

I decided to surprise my dad with a flight from Basel to Nice and back for his birthday since he likes easyJet and flying as much as I do.  Smile So we had an early get up this Saturday since easyJet Switzerland flight EZS1101 leaves Basel already at 6:10 in the morning. There are now three flights from BSL to NCE on Saturday, two operated by easyJet and one operated by Swiss. I was surprised to see good loads, our flight 75% full and the return flight in the evening was almost 100% full.

We checked in online so we arrived just on time at the airport. We just saw the 5:30 morning arrival from Istanbul-SAW and then boarded our aircraft.

Our aircraft neighbour just arrived from Istanbul-SAW and prepares for the next flight to Naples


Sorry for the quality...


Then the big surprise came...we taxied to runway26...the short runway at BSL. I departed on this runway several times but with aircraft such as the RJ100, ATR, Saab but never with an A-319! The runway length is only 1820 meters Big grin

So awesome takeoff directly Nice direction. Nice sunrise too  Smile








Hot chocolate  Smile


Nice view of the mountains:


After less than an hour we already reaches the sea:


The town of Antibes  Smile


Landing on the water?  Wink




Our plane:


We then decided to go to San Remo in Italy since we have been to Nice before. We took the bus to Nice Ville train station and there took a train to Ventimiglia in Italy. On the way you can see Monaco:


Lemon tree!


Arriving in Ventimiglia...probably not the nicest place on earth!


The French railway company uses quite fucked up trains on this line:


We changed trains in Ventimiglia (we got a not much nicer Italian train) and arrived soon in San Remo where we first headed for a small breakfast  Smile


A nice spring day!


San Remo is a nice town, don't want to be there however in peak summer time when the place is overcrowded.






After lunch and seeing the town we decided to take the train back to Nice...the train was a mess...basically it just stopped enroute for about half an hour with no information at all...fortunately we had spare time and reached Nice airport well in advance for our return flight.

All in all another very pleasant experience on easyJet: Good fares, friendly staff, flights on time...nothing to complain at all!

Hope you like this report!

Hi Thomas,

Sounds like a nice day out (no pun intended!). San Remo seems a lovely little place and the breakfast you had looks delicious. Great pictures of the sunrise too.

Nice trip report indeed. I love San Remo, I always go there when I am in Cannes or Nice. Did you go to the market of San Remo?

Thanks a lot for the nice comments!

Yes, we visited the market, it's a funny place...especially all the faked watches and football t-shirts Big grin .

Next trip will be BSL-PMI (easyJet A319)-MAD (Spanair MD-80)-BSL (easyJet A319) Big grin Big grin

Thanks again and best regards!

Hallo Thomas - I liked the photo of the breakfast in Italy...the capuchino and the italian croissants taste much better than the French version...
We go to Liguria at least five time à year,because we LOVE Italia !!!
Food is so much better than in France (specially at the Côte d'Azur,the permanent ripp-off ,if you don't know where to eat,you usually end up payin a lot for microwave-oven heated Metro food ..)..
Usually we stay in Diano Marina ,Albenga or Bordighera,where the hotels dont make a fuss because we travel with our dog.We love the Ligurian villages but also the coast of Toscany ( Carara,Forte di Marmi..)
Nice trip report - thanks for the efford..

Hi Peter

Thanks a lot for your comments. The pics are great, very beautiful. I really appreciate this information.

My parents travel with our dog frequently...I will gladly forward the information to them as well since it's not that easy to find accomodation where dogs are allowed.

I really enjoyed San Remo...I expected it to be expensive but it was rather cheap (we had a good lunch for less than 15 Euros in a restaurant).

Thanks again and take care!

Best regards,
