Nice 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.
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.
Nice 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!
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 Nice 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!).
Nice... I love it. It's crowded and full of Americans (no offence) but if you speak French and meet locals it adds to the experience so much. The weather is beautiful, the rocky beach can be surprisingly comfortable if you work at it, and the sunset is absolutely beautiful. Also I had the best pizza and gelato there...who knew? Oh and GO TO THE PUBLIC BEACH IN CANNES! You will not regret it plus the train ride is very scenic.
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.
