We have 6 nights for our honeymoon in May. After reading that Switzerland weather likely won’t be ideal this time of year, we are deciding to go somewhere warmer. Prior to this, we will be spending 10 days in Italy (Florence/Tuscany/Positano) then flying to Nice from Naples.
I have been to the French Riviera (only saw Nice, Monaco, Saint Paul de Vence) before but my fiancé has not.
I’ve realized the Cannes Film Festival and Monaco Grand Prix while be going on while we are there, so hotels are quite expensive and some are getting booked up.
Any thoughts or suggestions on this rough itinerary:
- 3 nights - stay in Nice at Anantara Plaza Nice Hotel (part of Amex FHR). Day trips from here to Villefranche-sur-mer, Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, and Menton. Would also like to spend time at beach clubs in Nice.
- 1 night - stay at Chateau De La Chevre D’or in Eze. Lazy day to explore the town and hang by the pool enjoying the views.
- 2 nights - ??? possibly stay in Aix-en-Provence or another coastal town such as Antibes or St Tropez? If staying in Provence, we could fly out of either Paris or Nice.
I understand a lot of the towns along the coast are easy day trips, but it might be nice to stay and get a real feel for them instead of staying in Nice the whole time.
Flight home is not yet booked, but will most likely fly out of Nice.
