Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Commentaires

Nice 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.
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.
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!
Nice 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…
Postcard perfect sceneries. The train is a marvelous mode of travel. Although my French is very limited, there were kind souls who helped along the way. The best memories include watching the yachts bobbing in the aqua meditranean sea from the top of the old castle in Nice, the garden in Monaco, the Picasso museum in Antibe, and the seaside in Cannes. I also treasure the train ride back from Monaco at night, along the coast, watching the moonlight rippling on the sea. We did all the daytrips spontaneously and every one of them turned out to be beautiful. The only surprise was the pebbly beach in Nice and the chilly water. It was interesting but a bit of a let down as in tropical coastal Malaysia, our beaches are sandy and the water warm. But one should go to Nice not for the beaches but for the ambience, the French, the food, and the charming old towns and cobblestoned streets. I am planning to return to Nice in January 2006 to recapture some of the magic with new friends!
Nice 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.
