Nice and Monte Carlo in early March - Who's been there, done that?

Jump to last reply

My husband will be in Barcelona and Nice in late February. I'm flying over to meet him on March 1st in Nice and then heading to Monte Carlo - that is his dream - for 6 days. I'll fly back from Nice on the 7th and he'll stay in Europe for another week.

We'll have to stay the first night in Nice as he doesn't arrive there until near midnight. I will arrive at 2pm and am wondering if anyone has a good, safe hotel suggestion for that night. Is the area along the promenade safe to walk in the evening alone?

We will head to Monte Carlo the next day and plan to take day trips ( Eze, Cannes, Antibes or Aix) as well as do some touring of his choosing in Monte Carlo (like walk the F1 course), see the casino, galleries, spend half a day at a spa, etc.

A few questions for those who've been there - 1)favorite side trips 2)restaurants that won't break the bank 3)out of the way places or sites not to be missed 4)if you were going for the first time knowing what you know now, what would you do differently? (please don't say skip monte carlo as this is his destination; we've been to barcelona a few times and love it but he's zero'd in on Monte Carlo)

Given what I've read on this board, our best bet may be to take the train from Nice to Monte Carlo rather than a bus or taxi; we'll rent a car for the day trips tho.

Our travel agent is booking the hotels for us in Monte Carloas he spends a month there each year and is very comfortable with the area.
