    Cannes Transportation

    Like many train stations in France, this place looks dirty (I'm sure it is)...but you will only have to be here, if you have a train to catch (DUH!). It's the fastest way to get to Nice and other cities. If you're taking a local train, there is no need to buy in advance. Instead of queueing and buying your ticket at the counter, use those ticket...

  • Various Methods of Transport

    Avignon Transportation

    As you might know, bicycles are very popular in France.

Our hotel arranged the trip with "Azur...

  • More questions???

    Thank you for your response. I did think Avignon, Nimes, Aix, were close enough for day trips. Don't want to change hotels too many times as you always lose a large piece of the day when you move to another hotel. So, would it be better to stay near the train station or near the port, or does it even matter if the Metro is near?

  • The three "Corniches"

    As the Sea Alps extend towards the seashore, space for roads is limited. On the other hand, the view from each road is breathtaking. In the eastern part of the Côte d'Azur, three so-called "corniches" allow visitors to enjoy these vistas: the Basse-Corniche, the oldest of them, next to the sea, the Moyenne-Corniche from the 1920s in the middle and...
