Cote d'Azure in November - where to go

Jump to last reply

I'm thinking of spending a few days in Nice in November - probably about four nights. I think I'll have about ten days total and plan to spend the first and last 3 in Paris, flying to Nice for the few days in the middle.

First question - I looked up the weather history and know about what temps to expect but I'm wondering what the "atmosphere" will be like. Will there be potted flowers blooming like there are in the summer? I know there are palm trees and that it doesn't freeze there,but I'm wondering about things like fountains (do they shut them off ?), boats (do they remain in the harbors all winter ? ). Stuff like that.

Second question - I know I'd like to see Eze and Villefranche-sur-Mer. Do they each take the better part of a day to visit or can I expect to do more? Could a quick stop in Monaco be combined with one of them? I'd just basically want to "see" it, not go to the casino or fancy restaurant or anything.

What about Antibes - how easy is it to get there?

My main interests are photography and soaking up atmosphere. Just wandering, poking into shops, shooting pictures. I'd be alone for this part of the trip so no long meals and probably not much in the way of museum going.

So, any and all opinions welcome. Thanks
