Provenza-Alpi-Costa Azzurra Comments

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.
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.
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 Marsiglia 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.
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.
Nizza 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…
Nizza is not a culture city. It's got sea and beach -- so expensive too. The population is unfriendly too. It's better to stay in any other cities around!
