Where to go after Nice

Jump to last reply

I need help from those a little more well-travelled in Western Europe. My GF and are spending a week in Nice at the end of June. The rental on our flat ends on Wednesday morning, but we won't fly back to the US until Saturday. Any advice on where to travel or what to do from Wednesday to Saturday? Ideas that I have tossed around are to stay in Provence, go into Northern Italy (Milan, Turin, or Genoa), head to Spain, or go to Paris (we even considered taking the train to Brussels). Any suggestions from those with more knowledge of the area than us?

Other pertinent that might influence recommendations: 1) I will be post-Ironman and probably not up for rigorous activity. 2) We will use public transport (mostly train); 3) I will probably have a large bike box with me, making hopping on/off trains/buses multiple times per day difficult. 4) We're open to spending 3 days in one large city/town or 1 day in several small towns as long as we end up in a city with an airport on Saturday. Airfare from Europe back to the Sates seems to be about the same no matter where you start or finish.

Suggestions?
