Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Comments

Marseilles is a beautiful city with a very different character than most of France. Good luck and have fun.
We stumbled into Cassis by advice of fellow travelers and I am still thinking of the beautiful, quaint town years later. I would love to be able to go back in the future. You must go.
Cassis is wonderful, but in the summer very touristy. But when you walk a little bit, you will find beautiful beaches with many people.
After spending two nights in Nice, I don't know why anyone would want to spend their money and energy on such a dirty, noisy, busy, overpriced city, with a rocky beach and nothing to see or do. We spent our time in Monaco instead. Before you make Nice a stop on your trip, ask yourself why you are going. If you want to lounge around on the beach, try one of the quieter, neighboring cities with sandy beaches.
I found my way to Cassis ten years ago and have never forgotten the experience.
Nice is nice for people who are more interested in going to the (rocky) beach and bars than cultural things. If you are in a hurry, don´t get stuck here as you can see the whole city in one day. One day in Monaco and Cannes is a must. Certain areas are dangerous at night. Another hostel guest got robbed at night during my stay. So don't go out at night by yourself! The city is very expensive and during the summer 2006 the whole main street was under construction, so it wasn´t that pretty. Don´t miss the old town.
