Neat coastal walk on Riviera - between Eze-sur-Mer train station and Monte Carlo - take train back from there - signature beauty of Cote d'Azur coast rarely seen elsewhere these days on a coast with many high-rises fronting the sea. Nice paved few-mile footpath. Bring a picnic. Take a swim in the deep azure-hued waters.

The old town of Nice is called the Vielle Ville not the Latin Quarter.

A really beautiful hotel in Nice is La Perouse. It commands magnificent views of the Baie des Anges and is next to the Colline du Ch teau.

I recommend day trips to Beaulieau-sur-Mer, Cap St Jean Ferrat, and Antibes. Take the train from Nice Ville.

You can take a tutorial on how to buy a train ticket from a machine in France by watching a video on You Tube.

Re Cote d'Azur trains - be sure to take the local commuter trains which frequently run right along the coast - stopping every few miles - flat fare really cheap but avoid the long-distance and TGV trains which cost more and require seat reservations (TGVs) before boarding. Local trains have no seat reservations at all - just hop on with valid ticket (cancel own ticket before boarding in date-stamping machines in stations and on platforms or else your ticket will not considered to be valid) - buy a return (aller et retour billet) ticket if day tripping.

For a taste of Italy take these trains to Ventimiglia - an Italian seaside town that is well real Italian.

My circumflex doesn't work, either. Makes me look stupid and there's no reason for it. All the other diacriticals work.

An excursion few tourists but many French take goes by train from Nice by the narrow-gauge Chemins de fer de Provence into the hinterlands of Provence and a whole different world than the glitzy coastal areas - a sleepy Provence with sleepy old towns - lots of hiking trails between stations. Annot is one nice town to get off at. Trains leave from a station next door to Nice's Nice-Ville mainline station. No need to reserve and cheap - not a fancy train at all. Nicknamed the Train des Pignes or pine trees:
