Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Comments

Nice is cool, the beach is crap, but the city awesome. Watch out for crackheads stealing your bags at night. Spend a day here and then hit St. Tropez and look for P Diddy.
Marseille itself is not a very beautiful city.
It's a magical place so full of beautiful old colourful buildings and quaint streets. The beach sucked but being from Australia we tend to be spoiled. We loved the sights sounds and smells of Nice and the people were lovely. Our biggest regret was we couldn't spend more time there.
Heaven and Cassis are one in the same. The weather is so perfect that a bit of fog drives people off the beach in droves!
Nice is a very frantic city, but beautiful. The beaches aren't the best, I would suggest going to Monaco for Villefranche for that (both are easy to get to, the bus goes straight from one end of the Cote d'Azur to the other, so you can't really miss it). Old Nice is very reminscent of Venice, you MUST find the ice cream/gelato place, it's easy to recognize once you find your way through the maze of Old Nice. Ask to try the olive, it's an experience.
Nice is not a culture city. It's got sea and beach -- so expensive too. The population is unfriendly too. It's better to stay in any other cities around!
