CANNES MONACO EZE

Hello,

I have 3 days in Cannes.

Day 1 - ferry to St Tropez full day
Day 3 - Nice Ebike - maybe hop onhop off- ferry to Monaco non stop
DAY 2 . HERE ARE THE QUESTIONS

As monring walk has been cancelled I will take the mini train
At 1330 take train to Monaco
In Monaco take Le Grand Tour

Question:
Do I take the bus to EZE? is it worth?
or
Do I stay in Monaco for a 19 hours night tour?
or
Go to Eze. come back when I want
Get into the Casino by myself and come back to Cannes (where I am based) in a regular bus
having my own night tour?

All suggestions are welcome!

3rd alternative the cheaper as tours cost like EU 75,

Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Trains are best from Monaco direct to Cannes and dirt cheap - just hop on with valid ticket bought before train- ticket valid on any train that day - for lots on Riviera trains check www.seat61.com; www.budgeteuropetravel.com and www.ricksteves.com.

Is Eze worth it? Only for the rave views IMO otherwise a complete tourist trap treading on perfumes and such.

Eze is only reached by bus from Monaco - a thrilling ride on one of the corniches - cliffside roads.

When going to Monaco you can take a train to Cap d'Ail train station and then go down to the sea and hang a left - go east - on beautiful footpaths - flat and easy - the few miles to Monaco, emerging around a cape from pristine untouched coastal scenery (rare in this very developed area) right into the lap of luxury and the Monte Carlo Yacht Club- I would not spend much time in Monaco other than the novelty of seeing it and going into the casino- then yes catch the bus to Nice via one of the corniche routes.

but the footpath Cap d'Ail to Monte Carlo is sooo-peeeerb - cypress treesimpossibly cling to boulders tumbling toward the really clear azure-hued sea- isolated swimming holes (suit optional it seems IME)-just the quintessential image of the French Riviera etched in many folks' minds but which only bits remain and most never experience- a very very easy walk:

IME- In My Experience!

Salut!

When will you be in Monaco? Keep in mind the Grand Prix is
at the end of May, and the course set up weeks prior to the race. Was there last year the Tuesday of race week, and as
much as we hoped to walk around, really couldn't get too far because of fencing being put up for the race.

Have a great trip!
