I’m currently in the Loire Valley and heading to the French Riveria tomorrow and need some help with my itinerary! Due to some travel challenges, I’ve had to change my itinerary and now have one day less in the region.
I’ll be staying in Nice and had planned to spend one day in each of the following: Nice, Villefranche Sur Mer/Cap Ferrat, Monaco and Antibes. Now that I have one less day, I need to eliminate one of those options (or perhaps compress my plans a bit?). I’m torn between Villefranche Sur Mer/Cap Ferrat and Monaco - I know they’re very different, but I’m looking for your suggestions as to which to choose.
For Villefranche Sur Mer/Cap Ferrat, I’m interested in the Villa Ephrussi and Plage de Passable, in addition to Rick’s self guided walk for both towns. The guidebook says Monaco is a “Riviera must” and I’d plan to do Rick’s Monaco walk in addition to visits to Prince’s Palace, the cathedral, Monte Carlo and La Turbie. I don’t think I could go wrong either way, but would greatly appreciate insight and feedback!!
