Public Transit or Car for visiting villages outside Nice?

Jump to last reply

I am looking for advice for our 3 day visit to Nice. We are 2 adults and 2 children and we will have a car as Nice is one stop on a longer vacation.

We want to take a few day trips: 1) Trois Corniches, 2) Vence/St. Paul de Vence and 3) perhaps Antibes.

My question is whether it would be better to just park the car at the hotel (centrally located near Place Massena) and take buses to visit the towns outside of Nice.

With kids in tow we prefer not to spend a lot of time waiting for buses however from the other posts and blogs I have read it seems bus service is very good. Other wrinkle....we will be there in August.

thanks for any tips
Chris
