Nizza is amazingly beautiful and full of things to do. You can wander the streets in search or the Russian Cathedral and encounter many beautiful parks and buildings on the way. You can also spend a lot of time in Villa Nice (Old Nice)..its amazing...every morning and evening during the summer there is a flower market where the farmers from the surrounding area come in and sell fruit, plants, flowers, candy, fish, spices, and many other unique items. The streets are lined with beautiful little shops and outdoor cafes and walking along the beach is great. It is very rocky but the views are amazing. Be sure to climb up the ruins of an old castle for some of the most beautiful pictures youll ever take. It is also extremely easy to get to Canne, Villefranche, Monaco and Menton. We went to different places each day and would return to Nice each evening to eat outside under heat lamps in the cafes. Canne has sandy beaches if that is what you are looking for, Menton is known for…
Nizza 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!
I found my way to Cassis ten years ago and have never forgotten the experience.
You will learn that streets are not marked as obviously in Europe as they are in the states—look up on the corners of the buildings for placards. Train is the likely way you will arrive in Nizza if you are a backpacker—just listen up for strikes because the trains and then the trains and the buses went on strike the week I was there which had some people stranded when they were over due to get out of France—but I thought the protesting in the streets was cool—there was singing and music parade-style in the mornings and I sure wanted them to win! And when you are there remember to give give yourself time for daytrips to Cannes and Monaco—it’s just an air conditioned bus ride away (as long as they are not on strike that is!).
After spending two nights in Nizza, 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.
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.
