Nice trip plan

by eastrunner

Hiya,

We are booked to arrive in Nice on a saturday early morning and leave from Marseille on Monday afternoon,

We were thinking od apending 2 days in Nice and heading to Marseille for the day early on monday

Can anyone suggest any places we can visit around nice, should we try to fit in Monaco as well? or are 2 days not enought/too much for Nice?

We like to experiance local culture, food, monuments, architecture and visit scenic places.

Thanks

ER

To see much of what this marvelous place offers, two weeks rather than two days - you will hardly scratch the surface. (Still, you can always come back and pick up where you left off!)

Best plan is to make a half day excursion to a place nearby of your choice, then return to Nice for futher exploration the rest of the day and eating out.

Monaco is the top of most peoples list - easily reached by train or bus. After this, the choice is betweenn one of the perched villages - St Paul de Vence or Eze Village, and feet on the ground somewhere like Villefranche and St Jean Cap Ferrat - the villa Ephrussi is a popular visit.

Within Nice, do what everyone does - ascend the Colline du Chateau, explore the old town and the port, the Cours Saleya, promenade on the promenade, and most fun pick a restaurant for the evening

And hope the weather is good!

Skip Marseille and stay in Nice. Our favorite part of Nice was the Old Quarter, especially in the evening, when its restaurants and bars are in full swing.

Around Nice, there are a lot of interesting little towns, including Antibes, Eze, St. Paul de Vence, and Villafranche-sur-Mer. We found Monaco to be a letdown compared to the others, which have much more character and a friendlier vibe. Cannes is also near Nice, if you want a day at the beach. However, we found Cannes to be a bit snooty and less welcoming to tourists passing through.

There are a number of art museums in the vicinity of Nice, including the Chagall, Matisse, and Beaux-Arts Museums in Nice; the Picasso Museum in Antibes; and the Fondation Maeght near St. Paul de Vence. The following link has info about a number of the Nice museums:

Actually you have 1 ½ days in Nice. Going to Monaco takes a full day, or you will only remember bus and train stations. That leaves ½ for Nice. I would rather suggest staying in Nice and save Monaco for your next trip.

Find out in advance what is closed on Sundays – they take leisure seriously. Keep in mind that restaurants and cafes have lunch breaks – that’s when they go for lunch, not you.

Read Nicelife’s pages - it will do you good, especially on a rainy day.

Travel Tips for Nice

Live from Nice! Check the Baie des Anges from home

by NiceLife

The ever helpful Nice Office de Tourisme at 5 Promenade des Anglais has a webcam mounted on its roof, overlooking the Baie.

Anytime you want, you can peek through a thousand mile window looking out over Nice. Watch in real time the azure blue sky, the turquoise blue waters of the Med and the radiant curve of the bay all the way out to the tip of the airport. Tiny people totter along the promenade and disappear under the white arches, while the traffic zips by as the image refreshes.

Though its not always the case, this morning it was looking just perfect. Makes you just want to jump on a plane..... or at least go click on Webcam

There. Now your living room has a sea view.

PARC FORESTIER du MONT–BORON

by Elainehead

With 142 acres planted with Aleppo pines in 1866, 11km of marketed pathways, its rare species of flowers (wild orchids, lentiscus, miniature carnations...), the forest park of Mont Boron is a favourite haunt of joggers, botany fans and casual strollers, who come to admire the magnificent view of St. Jean Cap Ferrat to the east and the Baie des Anges to the west.

It's really close from the Youth Hostel (Auberge de Jeunesse de Nice). My legs are still hurting!!! Ouch! Ahhhhh, this is a great place to take incredible photos of Nice (harbor and promenade des Anglais) and also St Jean Cap-Ferrat.

Sometimes, it rains in Nice....

by NiceLife

As little as possible - preferrably fly with hand luggage only. If there is anything you need, remember, there is nothing more exciting as shopping in a different country. Clothes here are really cheap. Add a little style by dressing local. Your only problem will be people coming up to you asking for directions - in French! It does rain here sometimes, especially November but even at the best of times, so some defence against rain can be useful. A very small and portable umbrella does the trick.

Bear in mind if you fancy a flutter, the grand casinos won't let you in looking like a beach bum. Shirt and tie for the gentlemen. Warning: the French believe in suppositories as the main method of administering drugs. And likewise when taking their temperature. Putting a thermometer in your mouth will get you pained looks - they know where any previous user most likely put it. A tripod! The beauty of cities by night requires a stable foundation for your camera, even if its only a lightweight tabletop stand.

Why not push out the boat and go for a next generation Manfrotto carbon-fibre full height tripod. They are fantastic. Negligible weight to carry but with total stability. Ferociously expensive, but your camera will love you for it. and you will love the results! Don't. This is not a campsite. Michel Thomas French Language Course.

Day trip to Villefranche-Sur-Mer

by Nice2004

For a lovely easy day trip from Nice go to Villefranche. A pretty little place by the sea. Villefranche has a small old town with passageways and narrow streets to explore, a 16th century citadel and a Chapelle with frescos by Jean Cocteau. Cafes and restaurants line the sea front and there is a strip of shingle beach, which makes a change from the pebbles of Nice!

Easy to reach by bus on either the 81 or TAM 100 bus from Nice Gare Routiere. The 100 runs every 20 minutes during the day, so there isn't usually long to wait before the next one comes along. The jounrye takes around 15 minutes. The train also runs from Nice to Villefranche, but the timetables can be somewhat haphasard with hour or so waits between trains.

Henri Auer Chocolaterie #2

Picture Group #2

Crystallized fruit, a Nice specialty,
has been hand made and sold at
Henri Auer since 1820 .... We had to try both the crystallized fruit and the
chocolates .... GREAT

We were on holiday, so who counts calories when
your having a good time ...... ha ha

Best to get it there, becase you won't find this stuff
at home at the corner store ....
