Help with Provence and French Riviera

Jump to last reply

Hi All,
I will be traveling with a friend at the end of June and we're working out the details of our itinerary. Any help is appreciated. Some background-So far, the details are as follows: We're landing in Nice on a Tuesday morning. Between Tuesday and Sunday, we will be staying in the south exploring the area-main places I would like to visit are Eze, Cap D'antibes, and my friend would like to see Monaco. Over the weekend we will either stay in Cannes or Nice (haven't yet decided) we will then head to Provence on Sunday and fly out of Lyon on Thursday. Here are my questions:

1. what town/village is a nice option to stay in (before cannes/nice) from tues night-thursday night.
2. Cannes vs. Nice as base for the weekend?
3. Must see places besides those named above?
4. In Provence-any recommendations for a base? I was thinking St. Remy or Aix en Provence
5. Any opinions on must sees in Provence?
6. May spend the last couple of days in Lyon/Rhone Valley, any recommendations of areas to stay in outside of Lyon but with access to the city?
7. Finally (sorry!) opinions on car rentals, and if there are any parts of this trip where i absolutely should or should not have a car?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
Daniella
