To Do/Stay in Nice? St. Tropez / Monte Carlo / Nimes too!

Jump to last reply

Hi! My husband and I are on the verge of booking a trip to the French Rivera for late May/early June 2017. Neither of us has been before. Our plan thus far is to fly into Nice, spend 3 nights in St. Tropez (Hotel Sezz), 3 nights in Nice, and the final 3 nights in Monte Carlo, Monaco (Le Meridian Beach Plaza).

Regarding Nice, we don't know a ton about the area and are looking to learn more. What is there to do? What are the must-see sites, experiences, etc? Is it worth staying in Nice or should we look at hotels in St Jean Cap Ferrat too? We were thinking of going to Cannes for an afternoon (if that factors into the equation), and maybe Antibes too. Is Antibes worth our time, or are we better off spending the time exploring Nice?

As for other day trips, we intend to spend a day in Nimes (instead of going straight from St. Tropez to Nice, we will leave early and go to Nimes for the day, and then to Nice/St. Jean Cap Ferrat to check into our hotel that evening). Any insight into Nimes? Worth the drive?

All other suggestions are welcome. Thank you!!
