French and Italian Riviera

Jump to last reply

Could use some help planning a 15 day or more trip to the French and Italian Riviera. Planning on going the beginning of September 2015. Flying out of New Jersey, and arriving and departing from Nice.
My thought is to make Nice my homebase for six nights. Will be staying at the Ellington hotel.

Will not have a car and do not plan on renting one

Would like to do daytrip's perhaps and Antibes, St Jean Cap Ferrat, Monaco, Eze, St Paul de Vence perhaps Menton, and canes. Not sure about Grasses or Gourdon
Welcome any suggestions. Also need help putting them in order.
Is six nights enough?

Next, would like to head to the Italian Riviera by train. Which train would I take. Would I need tickets ahead of time?

Should I spend a night or two in Genoa?
From Genoa we thought we'd stay at Levanto or Sestri Levante
Don't know which is located better to get around by train or ferry
How many days would I need at this location. Would like to see Portofino, Cinque Terre, Santa Margherita Ligure and any other town or village that is worthy
Thanks for your help
Sue
