Getting around and sight seeing in Cote D' Azur

Jump to last reply

We are a family of 4 planning a 35 days road trip in France in May June 2015.
We will be coming from Annecy and proceeding to St Remy area in Luberon.
We have 4 nights stay in Coted'Azur out of which most of the 1st day will go in a scenic road journey may be from Sisteron area.
As I go on researching each part, I have these questions.

1. We will be staying in an sea facing apartment on the corniche at Nice.. Another option is an apartment in Antebes. Nice is a big city, but has a lot to see, so don't know if that's is the right choice as a base to explore the area.

2. Should we keep the car in the hotel and see the entire riviera by public transport? or should we park the car in each place and walk around or use local public transport?
That would be my choice if that is practical.

3. Where to park in that case at a) Nice b) Antebes c) Eze d) Menton
and also on our way to Luberon, i intend to visit Marseilles and Casis. Where to park at these 2 places?

4. On a long journey from any place A to B, how risky is it to keep all the luggage in the boot of a parked car and go for sightseeing? For short day trips I am not worried.

5. Suggestions on how best to spend 3.5 days n 4 nights there., what to see and what mode of transport for it?

Please help
