Marseille is not the picturesque, idyllic city in France that you have in your mind, but it has a totally different character and vibe to it, which attracted me immensely. It's brilliant.
Nizza is fabulous! You must go here if you are in France. It is the most beautiful place to visit and be sure to do a trip to Monaco.
We spent a few days in town and there is plenty to do. The downtown is colourful and the walk up and down to the cathedral is spectacular and so is the view. We made a daytrip to Cassis and really was worth it. One thing about Marseille is that it is a lot dirtier than other cities in France and beware of dog waste everywhere. Of course, we have found no city in France where the streets are not caked with it -- there seems to be no social outcry at all from locals.
Nizza is beautiful. Although rocky, the beach is spectacular. You MUST go to the Ice Cream place in the center of Vielle Nice, it has like 100 flavours (try one scoop of rhubarb, and one scoop of strawberry). Do not even bother trying to get ice cream from anywhere else because it would never be able to match this place. Try having Moulles et Frites (mussels and fries) from Lou Pilha Leva at 13 rue du Collet in Vielle Nice!
Nizza 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.
Cassis is wonderful, but in the summer very touristy. But when you walk a little bit, you will find beautiful beaches with many people.
