From the Arenas Cimiez, I walked down through the roads of huge, beautiful old houses. Wow, just wow. They definitely have their own charm to them, one that is different from the houses of Paris or other French cities. I wandered past as many of these beautiful houses as I could until I go to the Russian church.
Sadly, you couldn't go in the church as they were doing renovations. According to this couple who walked behind me up to it, they had been renovating the church the last time they went there 2 years previous!
