Basically me and a group of mates, 3 - 5 of us [most likely 4] are deciding whether to go on a little road trip to Nice. First we were wondering if it would be easier and cheaper to rent a car in London and travel to Lyon [where we could possibly stay the night], then drive down to Nice. Or would we be better off taking a eurostar train from London to paris, hiring a car in paris and driving down?
We'd probably like to stay in nice for 4/5 days during mid/late august. So we were just seeking some advice on possible alternative routes to nice and rough estimates on costs for the 2 different driving routes. Rough guide on accommodation costing would also be appreciated [doesn't have to be anything fancy].
