Nizza is a lovely city! A walk on the promenade by the beach at night is a must, as all sorts of street entertainers populate this place at night! Day trips I would recommend are to Monaco, Cannes, Antibes, and St. Tropez.
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!).
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!
Marseilles is a beautiful city with a very different character than most of France. Good luck and have fun.
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.
