View Full Version : Anyone been to Nice, France?

You all were so helpful with helping me plan a day in Paris, that I thought I'd ask another France question here...

I'm traveling to France in a couple weeks, and managed to get some time to visit the south. We've decided we're going to stay in Nice and do some day trips from there, but I was wondering if anyone could tell me where, if you don't have a car, would you stay in Nice? What part of the town? Is there one beach that is nicer than the rest?

We have a 1 year old, and wanted a base that we could get to beaches and sights by walking, or to a train station by walking so that we could day trip to Monaco... etc.

Thanks, guys!

Sadly, I have not been there. I hope someone else can give you pointers! :)

We've decided to book a place in old town. I hope that's right. Everything I find seems to indicate that's the place to be. It seems to have pictures of nice beaches... but maybe I'm way off. We just want to chill out, beach a bit, shop a bit, see a couple sights (around Nice, and to surrounding areas like Monaco etc).

No worries if people don't have suggestions, just thought I'd ask
