Paris and Nice Travel Help


My friend and I are planning on going to Paris and Nice next week at the last minute. We'll only have about two full days in each (thinking 8/19-8/24 for total travel). I know this is not a lot of time. Any help you can give us would be great. I don't know where the best places are to stay, book flights, things to do, places to eat, nightlife, etc. We like being centrally located and enjoy the hustle of the city. However, we like to stay away from touristy restaurants, places.

I'do either one or the other but both in 4 days???

Unless you land in Paris and fly out from Nice (or the other way around).

Nice is 6.5 hrs by train from Paris or 1.5 hrs by air (lots of flights by Air France, especially departing Orly the closest airport to Paris)

You will be jet-lagged when you land and if you are lucky enough to land early in the AM in Paris that gives you 2 full days before leaving early in the AM for Nice (there are flights from 6AM I think).

Since you are a week away from hurry up on Expedia to see if you have both flights and hotels. Paris is not too crowded these days but Nice is pretty full I guess.

Any 2 or 3 stars hotel in the 6th or the 5th in Paris should be OK (try Hotel du Collège de France).

For Nice try the Mercure Promenade des Anglais, right on the beach.
