Postcard perfect sceneries. The train is a marvelous mode of travel. Although my French is very limited, there were kind souls who helped along the way. The best memories include watching the yachts bobbing in the aqua meditranean sea from the top of the old castle in Nice, the garden in Monaco, the Picasso museum in Antibe, and the seaside in Cannes. I also treasure the train ride back from Monaco at night, along the coast, watching the moonlight rippling on the sea. We did all the daytrips spontaneously and every one of them turned out to be beautiful. The only surprise was the pebbly beach in Nice and the chilly water. It was interesting but a bit of a let down as in tropical coastal Malaysia, our beaches are sandy and the water warm. But one should go to Nice not for the beaches but for the ambience, the French, the food, and the charming old towns and cobblestoned streets. I am planning to return to Nice in January 2006 to recapture some of the magic with new friends!
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.
Nice... I love it. It's crowded and full of Americans (no offence) but if you speak French and meet locals it adds to the experience so much. The weather is beautiful, the rocky beach can be surprisingly comfortable if you work at it, and the sunset is absolutely beautiful. Also I had the best pizza and gelato there...who knew? Oh and GO TO THE PUBLIC BEACH IN CANNES! You will not regret it plus the train ride is very scenic.
Cassis is wonderful, but in the summer very touristy. But when you walk a little bit, you will find beautiful beaches with many people.
Marseille itself is not a very beautiful city.
Cassis is a wonderfull village. Way too many tourists in July almost no parking. But if you can stand a walk spend many days if you can. It's quaint, friendly with lots of great food and wine.
