We are starting to plan our first trip to the French Riviera. We are there for a week at the end May/start June and staying at the Hotel Jabotte in Antibes. We would really appreciate any tips or comments or advice.
In Antibes we plan to
• Wander about old town
• See the markets
• Visit Picasso Museum, Chateau Grimaldi
• Try the Absinthe at the Bar La Balade (25 Cours Masséna)
• Have lunch at the historic Hotel Du Cap Eden Roc
(Worth the price? Which restaurant should we go to - I believe there are 2?)
We also plan to make day trips to really experience the Cote d'Azur:
Iles de Lerins from Cannes – and take a picnic
St Tropez - I believe there is a boat from Juan-les-Pins?
St Paul de Vence
Train to Monaco - is it worth it? Heard conflicting reports
Oh - and we're on a pretty tight budget!
Appreciate all suggestions and advice.
