My husband and I and our two teenage sons will be travelling to Nice for 14 nights in late July/early August (we booked our return flights from Nice).
We are wondering if there will be enough to see in the French Riviera region for the full 2 weeks. If so, any help on day trips from Nice would be most helpful. We have a few villages we want to visit, such as Eze and Villefranche sur Mer and Antibes, but any others destinations will be useful.
We have been told that a week is long enough and to either take the following week and visit Corsica or to travel along the Italian Riviera. We do not want to be moving in and out of hotels every few days so we will base ourselves in Nice while in the French Riviera and if you think it is a good idea to go into the Italian Riviera, what would a be a good base visit that region. We have heard that Portfofino and Santa Margherita are nice towns to visit in the region.
We enjoy the beach, eating at good, reasonably priced restaurants serving local fare and spending the day visiting quaint villages and museums.
Your help is much appreciated.
