Heaven and Cassis are one in the same. The weather is so perfect that a bit of fog drives people off the beach in droves!
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.
Get a reservation somewhere far in advance if you can, especially in the summer. Nizza always has a crowd of people who couldn't get beds sleeping outside the train station (it closes at night), and the mosquitos don't make it any easier.
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.
Nizza is a very frantic city, but beautiful. The beaches aren't the best, I would suggest going to Monaco for Villefranche for that (both are easy to get to, the bus goes straight from one end of the Cote d'Azur to the other, so you can't really miss it). Old Nice is very reminscent of Venice, you MUST find the ice cream/gelato place, it's easy to recognize once you find your way through the maze of Old Nice. Ask to try the olive, it's an experience.
I loved it -- real Nizza place. The people did not really know much English, but nonetheless it was welcoming, safe, and had very nice balconies to look upon the streets. There was a bit of a walk to the beach, but hey we all need a little exercise every now and then and it helped to see the area. Nice rules!
