@TopazWedding:  I loved Nice.  It is expensive though.  People were dressed very well.  I enjoyed the market.  Overall, I was there in college, and it was a bit too upscale for my backpack, back in the day, but great shopping and places to eat.

We are planning to stay in that region for our Honeymoon in May, so it’s nice to hear everyone’s experiences 🙂

I agree that the rocky beaches are not the best to spend several days on, but I love the south of France!  I spent a few days in Nice years ago in early July and it was perfect beach weather.  I did an ambitious Provence/Riviera trip with my girlfriends a couple of years ago in August and it was pretty hot – definitely needed rooms with AC.  We did Provence (Avignon and Aix) before traveling along the coast.  We stayed in Bormes-les-Mimosas for several nights and that was amazing, it would be a perfect honeymoon spot.  We took a ferry to St. Tropez for the day before heading to Nice.  We wanted to visit Villefranche-sur-Mer and Eze but ran out of time.

We did a lot but it really didn’t feel rushed. It worked for us to rent a car and I was surprised at how quickly we were able to get from place to place.

Nice was my favorite city in France. I went there in July for two days. We spent an afternoon in Monte Carlo/Monaco which I loved. Nice was so nice to walk around cute little cafes with crepes and gelato. The beach was very difficiult to go on and of of so many rocks. Once you get in the water you have to be deep enoguh so you can’t stand so your toes won’t be cut by rocks.
