From Nice to Chateaeuf du Pape

by AX7

Anyone drive it? Looks easy. Hit a couple of wineries, perhaps a stay overnite if needed. Nice to Milan or Tuscany looks great too. We have time and a GPS...so since we are so close, I'd like to give it a shot. After we absorb Nice of course.

Anyone do this? Suggestions?

Merci amis!

Driving your own car is always an excellent way to explore France. Buy a Michelin guide for the region to find those interesting small places. Start by planning your route and sightseeing with www.viamichelin.com. You'll certainly find 'gite' signs along the road, which means B&B, sometimes even Table d'hote (a B&B where you can have dinner).

Try http://www.gites-de-france.com/gites/uk/rural_gites for lovely B&B addresses. Do remember their logo, you will also see that by the side of the road.

Look out also for signs for Logis Hotels (www.logishotels.com) an association of independent, family owned and run hotels - many of which have an excellent restaurant, and even the simplest provide a very good food.

As you drive around the wine growing areas in France look out for signs outside the entrances to vineyards ( not "wineries" in France ) that say Degustation - which is an invitation to enter and taste the wines.
In many, particularly smaller ones the tasting is free and if you call at a not too busy time the wine grower may sit with you and talk about his wines as you try them.

We haven't visited Chateauneuf-du-Pape but have driven all around the area. It's easy driving, good roads and well marked. From Nice it is about 2 and half hours if you use the AutoRoute where you can. You may want to visit Aix-en-Provence, Avignon and the Pont du Gard while in the area. Orange and some of the hill villages are good stops too.

As far as driving from Nice to Tuscany, we've done this many times as we have friends in Tuscany. Excellent roads and stunning scenery. Well, the scenery is stunning to Chateauneuf too . . . it's all gorgeous in southern France / northern Italy.

We use the Michelin France Tourist and Motoring Atlas (and the Michelin Italy Tourist and Motoring Atlas) and love it. You can get it at Amazon.com or any online book store including the Michelin web site. The GPS is lovely, but on our last trip we discovered it had some incorrect information so we were very glad we had our map with us. Take both just in case. ;^)

You can check routes, mileage and tolls at http://www.viamichelin.com/

I'm a mapaholic; maps are so useful in planning outings and when the GPS fails you.

Enjoy your trip.

It is truly beautiful here. Thank you to all who have replied to my inquiries. We have a beautiful flat, burning lots of calories on foot. This upcoming week we begin our journies via car. Nice is truly tres chic and today we came home from the market with beautiful clementines from Sicily and plump figs. Simply helpful folks abound. The wine is outstanding! We have 15+ more days here and will make the most of it, thanks to you. Peace, mon amis!

Travel Tips for Nice

The Cathedrale St. Nicolas

by VeronicaG

The Cathedrale St. Nicolas is an architecturally beautiful Orthodox Russian cathedral located in the city. As we traveled through Nice we viewed it through the trees, so my pictures weren't the best. Happily, this postcard shows its true magnificence.

Here's some history of this structure: Russian nobility, as well as, visitors from the Imperial Court began arriving in the mid-19th century. When visiting Nice in 1864, Tsar Nicolas II was introduced to this large Russian community. Through this contact, he was moved to generously fund the construction of the Cathedrale St. Nicolas, the largest Russian Orthodox cathedral outside of Russia. It was inaugurated in December, 1912.

It's sad to read that a dispute has arisen concerning this beautiful structure. The first Russians settling in Nice say this cathedral belongs to the Orthodox Church of Constantinople, but more recent Russian transplants consider it to be under the authority of the Russian state.

There is a tug of war regarding who owns the property. The old Russian class of nobility regard the later arrivals as interlopers lacking in Christian values, not dressing modestly and more concerned about their newfound wealth.

There is also a concern that these new Russians may be involved in the mafia. Many believe that a religious building should NOT be under the control of a corrupt government. I hope a just decision is made regarding the overseeing of this cathedral, beloved by so many.

The cathedral is located off Blvd. Gambetta in Av. Nicolas II. Visitors are welcome.

The Center

by Lilasel

The center of Nice is from the big fountain, Fountaine du Soleil, across the Place Massena, ringed by bright pastel buildings, and up the Avenue Jean Médecin. Continuing beneath the railway overpass beside the train station, Ave Jean Médecin becomes Ave Malaussena.

The Rue de France pedestrian shopping street runs from the end of the Place Massena, roughly parallel to the seaside. This area is full of shops, including some exclusive clothing boutiques, and restaurants and cafés with outdoor terraces - a great place to sit and watch the world go by, while you eat or drink.

by pmchow

Visiting the Picasso Museum is a must... it does not look like those Big famous ones, it is just a tiny house on a cliff... but this is where Picasso spent a lot of his summer vaccation with his wife! A lot of nice things to see there... you seem to see him alive through his paintings...

Tour du Mont Boron

by Elainehead

on the forest road of the Boron go up to find on the left the starter of the path which leads to the summit plate; a panoramic covered way (Bellevue Corniche) makes it possible to go round the fortress of the navy (191 m). The descent is carried out by "the chemin de Crêtes" whose broad staircases lead comfortably to "la basse Corniche": Attention while crossing this busy main road (right of way over secondary road on you right upstream). To complete the course while going down by "le chemin Tordu" of the Mont Boron (escalier, then alley). A good pair of sneakers and a bottle of water.

by Angel_Dust

Most people just flock to the city...where Old NIce is and around that area. There's a whole other side of nice with cute little shops and stores that's not so tourist fested =] Check those places out! Just hop on a bus away...and go towards the airport and just hop off somewhere in the middle =]
