I'm looking to stay in Nice, France for 5 days over the summer with my daughter and her two children (age 7 and 12). We are going there mainly for a relaxing time, and would be seeking accommodation near the beach, and fairly central. I am not fond of the hustle and bustle of hotels in big towns so we'd prefer an apartment or a holiday complex, unless someone has any recommendations?
Has anyone heard of any good agencies?
Travelling from Nice to Florence by train we were thinking of staying in Genoa for one night. We do not want to spend 7 hours on the train. We have been discouraged by some reviews of Genoa. We would like to know if they are warranted? If so can anyone suggest another city on the train route where we might stop over, tour just a bit, have dinner and leave next morn for Florence.
We'd like to purchase a 24 hour transportation pass in Marseille. According to what I've read the pass -- don't know the name -- is similar to the Mobilis Pass in Paris. However, it seems that like the Paris Visite, the City Pass is pushed to tourists. We wouldn't mind purchasing the City Pass if we were going to be there longer, but we're not -- only enough time to walk around and see a few things, in addition to dining in a restaurant. Where can one purchase the 24 hours, 5 Euros (or thereabouts) transportation pass, not the City Pass? Thanks!
I already asked this question today, but I think it was lost. We will be based in Aix-en-Provence for about 5 1/2 days. We arrive on a Saturday late in the afternoon, and we are thinking about taking a day trip to Marseille the next day. However, we are debating between that and just enjoying Aix en Provence that day. On Monday, we will take a day trip to Nice by bus. On Tuesday, we're taking a day trip to Avignon, and on Wednesday we're taking a mini-van tour to Arles, St. Remy, and Les Baux. Thursday, we plan to spend in Aix. The next day we head to Paris on the TGV for two nights and fly out the next morning. So, on the one hand, I feel like it would be a shame NOT to see Marseille, but on the other, I feel like taking a little more relaxed trip by staying in Aix is the better plan. Any thoughts?
