Nice or Cannes? Calling all south of france experts....

Jump to last reply

I am debating between staying in Nice or Cannes for my summer trip. Here is what I am looking for in my French Rivera stay - I want to go to the beach, emmerse in the culture of the South of France in which I hear so many wonderful things, and enjoy the scenery. I will not have a car so I need to pick a place that is good for being in the middle of things. I do not have any desire to take day trips because I am already traveling so much by train to my other destinations I really do not want to see any museums or churces - I will see plenty of those in Paris and Venice. So, that is the background information that I think will help you determine if I should stay in Cannes or Nice.

In Cannes - I would stay at the Hotel Splendid
In Nice - I would stay at the Four Points by Sheraton OR Le Meridien
