Driving to St Tropez

by aerialannabeth

Since it is off season, is it easiest to rent a car in Nice and drive to St Tropez, as opposed to taking the boat and a bus or train?

Re: Driving to St Tropez

by cubsur

I don't know about easier but in winter the buses are not very frequent and there is no direct service from Nice - you have to take a train to St Raphael then the bus. The buses are only about once every 2 hours and don't run late into the evening.

The bus company website appears to be broken just now.

At least at this time of year you will be able to drive into St Tropez, which in summer is virtually impossible.

If your are not to short in terms of budget, yes, I would suggest to rent a car during the off season. Coming by train + bus is not so easy, by boat could be an interesting alternative

Travel Tips for Nice

by Krystynn

stroll along the PROMENADE DES ANGLAIS and its pebbly beach... and do also spend some time just soaking in the Mediterranean atmosphere here! The traffic on this stretch of highway can be very heavy, but once you've managed to cross to the seafront, you'd be rewarded with magnificent views of the Riviera! Here I am standing not too far away from CASINO RUHL here in Place Massena.

by Krystynn

drive down to ST TROPEZ, the glitzy resort town along the French Riviera (just south of Nice) and home to the great Brigitte Bardot. St Tropez was never the same again ever since the sexy BB headed this way and called this place - home - decades ago (hey, I DO know about her OK!). What I truly enjoyed doing most was taking a loooong morning stroll along the quiet medieval streets (when the rest of the world is still sleeping from the previous night's heavy partying) and admiring its many quaint pastel-colored houses.

You must also check out its yacht-filled harbor (see photo below) and visit its many trendy boutiques.... then, finish off your day by taking a short (but much-needed) respite at a local outdoor cafe.

Surely life can't get any better than this?

Note: For more pics of St Tropez, please surf straight to my 'ST TROPEZ' travelogue located at the top right hand side of this page. Thanks!

Bastille Day - fireworks

by NiceLife

Fête nationale or 14 juillet , refered to by only Anglosaxons and Americans as "Bastille Day"

Sensational atmosphere as the entire city descends on the beach and attempts to capture the fireworks on their mobile phone cameras.

Celebrates 1789 and the storming of the Bastille prison in Paris. Sort of American Independence day with french style.

Ventimiglia, Italy

by b1bob

Ever since I saw Ventimiglia on a train schedule and found out where it was, I decided I would make a day trip there. Its proximity to the Mediterranean and the nearby hills offers natural beauty and, because it's not as urban as Nice and Monaco, a little more charm. The townspeople are very nice- patient with a 20-year old student of French trying to teach himself Italian at that time. The day I was there, they were having a Unity Festival, rather like an Italian Summerfest. If this trip weren't so hurried, I might have had enough tips to build a stand-alone page.

Love to walk in the sky? :Grande Corniche

by NiceLife

Nice offers access to more than just the usual Riviera towns. The Cotes d'Azur is host to six Parcs Naturelle, the most spectacular of which is the Grande Corniche. Soaring to 700m above the sea, twice the height of the perched village of Eze which it overlooks, the wildness of terrain and the breath-taking views to the Mercantour and Italian Alps are a world apart from the hustle and mass tourism of the Cotes d'Azur. Running from La Turbie above Monaco to Col d'Eze and below, it encompasses the quirky Astrorama - more stars to spot than footballers WaGs at Ramatuelle, and the worst people-watching opportunity of the Riviera ever. I saw one person in five hours. And they weren't worth watching.

La Turbie is the main point of access, a pretty town famed for the giant Trophee des Alpes - forty minutes via the 116 bus from Nice bus station (1.00 euro - three to four buses a day) . The La Turbie tourist office is delightful and a helpful French conversation lesson thrown in for free if you ask ( Alternatively pay Villefranche Total Immersion Language School a fortune) They have free walking guides - "Randonnees"- that will take you east around Mont Agel to Roquebrunne and Gorbio, downhill to Beausoliel and Monaco, or west to Fort Reverie and Eze Village. Any choice gives you a two to three hour walk ending in regular transport to return you home.

This stuff is not for the faint hearted, but its not so hard you need to be Ironman. Just a healthy enjoyment of a little physical effort repayed in spades. Your own Carte de Randonnee (No 3752 OT scale 1:25,000 Nice/Menton ) is a good investment.

Note to photographers - these high altitudes give bleached skies - shoot RAW, adjust white balance to daylight and reduce exposure 1-2 stops post processing .

Note to motorists: its never too late to park the car and experience to pleasures of actually being here, and walking.
