Nizza 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.
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.
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.
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!).
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.
We stumbled into Cassis by advice of fellow travelers and I am still thinking of the beautiful, quaint town years later. I would love to be able to go back in the future. You must go.
