3 days in Cote D'Azur in October?

Jump to last reply

Hello! We will be spending 3 days in the Cote D'Azur in October and are looking for help with our itinerary. We have lots of ideas of things we'd like to see or do and need help narrowing things down! We are staying in Cannes from Wednesday PM through Saturday AM when we depart from Nice to NYC. Let me preface this decision (because I have read a few threads wondering why people would choose Cannes over Nice as their base...): we would like to avoid staying in Nice because we will have just been in Paris for 4 days and we also live in a major city. So we would like lodging that is a little more low-key, but still has some semblance of city life (cafes for leisurely coffee and breakfasts, bistrots and restaurants for evening activity, charming streets for strolling, etc). Since we are going in October we also ruled out staying at the "resorts" - Antibes, Cap Ferrat, St. Tropez, etc. If there is a city on the coast (or hills) that meets our criteria that I might have overlooked please let me know!

Here are the things we are interested in seeing/doing. If anyone has any suggestions as to how to tackle this list (or parts of it, or something that I'm missing) please let me know. We have one afternoon/evening and two full days for exploring.

-Relax and hang in Cannes
-See best parts of Nice
-See Monaco
-See Antibes - coast and market?
-Visit and walk around Eze & St. Paul De Vence
-Eat a fantastic meal in Mougins
-Wine tasting/wine tour - not sure where exactly to do this - suggestions?

Thank you!
