Provenza-Alpi-Costa Azzurra Comments

It's Nizza visiting Nice. I have seen lots of things that everybody wants to see.
Nizza is nice for people who are more interested in going to the (rocky) beach and bars than cultural things. If you are in a hurry, don´t get stuck here as you can see the whole city in one day. One day in Monaco and Cannes is a must. Certain areas are dangerous at night. Another hostel guest got robbed at night during my stay. So don't go out at night by yourself! The city is very expensive and during the summer 2006 the whole main street was under construction, so it wasn´t that pretty. Don´t miss the old town.
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.
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!).
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.
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!
