Help with Nice/Côte d'Azur itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hi all, just wanted some advice on a 3.5 day itinerary in the Cote d'Azur - we are going end of August and I'm trying to balance not rushing around but also fitting in time to see what we want.

My itinerary is mostly concerned with the logistics of getting from 1 place to another. I should mention that Nice is our base for the 3 nights and we will almost certainly be relying on public transport. So far:

D1: Villefranche, Monaco (late afternoon/evening)

D2: Eze, Cap d'Ail, make way back to Beaulieu and visit the 2 villas, walk Cap Ferrat, back to Nice for the evening

D3: Antibes, Nice sightseeing

D4: Nice

My main concern is around D2, I have no idea if a) it's too much and b) what would be the best order to do those in. Also is there any other place that is missing that I should try to see. I decided against St Paul de Vence for instance because it's a 1 hour bus ride away and in a direction where not much else of interest (at least from my limited knowledge).

Any advice around the itinerary and transport logistics would be most helpful. I am also toying with the idea of hiring a car for the day on D2 to drive to those places, and drop it off again that evening in Nice, any thoughts there?

Thanks very much in advance
