As a precursor to my visit to Paris in May of 2003, I wanted to spend a few sunny days by the Mediterranean. I chose Nice as my home base for two days, planning a side trip by train to Monaco.

Most visitors to the French Riviera come to the reknown coastal towns of Nice, Cannes or Antibes for its beaches, ports and ritzy life-style. But the more frequent visitors and the ones who prefer the atmosphere of medieval towns extend their visits to the perched villages of the "beyond" region.

French Riviera - Monaco

We stayed at Residence Quai des Princes in the Cap d'Ail harbor next to Monaco. Leave the car at the resort and take public transportation, as you can jump on and off at each location. The rooftop pool overlooks the Mediterranean Sea and harbor. Take a helicopter ride, located just behind the resort.

Nice, cool, sunny weather in November. There is a lot of waste-burning, which causes a lot of hazy smoke this time of year. This is also the vacation month for the locals, and many shops and museums are closed.

By far my favorite destination. Even though I went alone, there wasn't a moment that I felt lonely. Join me as I give you a little peak at my five days of heaven.

The French Riviera On The Cheap

Three days along the beautiful coast between Nice and Monaco doesn't have to cost a king's ransom if you stay in hostels and eat nicoise sandwiches. Most people whiz by on the train and miss the best part!

We stayed at Le Mas De Chastelet near St. Tropez. The area is lovely near the beaches, wine country, and ancient towns. It was about a one-hour drive to Nice, Cannes, and Vence (artist village). We enjoyed the opportunity to leisurely enjoy the south of France.

Cap D'Ail and Monaco

Cap D'Ail is the French resort a stone's throw from Monaco. Where we stayed was literally a block away. Sometimes the only way to tell which country you are in is by the phone booths; the ones in Cap D'Ail say "France" vs. the ones that say "Monaco".
