Default Headed to Nice.......

....for 10 days next month. Plan to run up & down the coast to Antibes & Villefranche, hit the Marches Saleya & Liberation (local cuisine at the small cafes/bistrots surrounding both, plus take-away to enjoy in local parks, etc.). Any suggestions that we might not find in the various tour guide books?

From the overwhelming response it does not seem there is much interest in Nice. However, if you are odd person who might be, just found this guide for doing Nice on the cheap, which we find is a better way of enjoying our travels then hanging in all the tourist places (can stay home and meet the same folks).

We plan to take the train both east and west from Nice for day trips visiting Antibes, Monaco and Menton. Perhaps the bus to visit Ezes (perfume factory), St Paul de Vence and St Jean Cap Ferrat to visit to the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild. And, the final 2-days of the Paris-Nice bicycle race will be while we are there.

We had 2-wk of wonderful weather (sunny, mild breezes, mid-60's), wonderful food and a wonderful place to visit. Nice turns out to be a great walking city (we did 4+ mi a day). Went as far east as Menton and west to Antibes. Could not recommend Nice and the area any more highly. As Nice was part of Italy until 1860, about 50% of the food was Italian. That pasta meals we had were as good as any we've had anywhere. Pretty much the same for the French meals. While we enjoy our veggies, the ones served with our meals in the area were the best we've had. Not sure if it was the source (local?), how they were prepared or both. But they were the best. Of course, the Cours Saleya market being only blocks from the Place Massena makes fresh foods easily available for restaurants anywhere near the central part of the city.
