When are you traveling and will you be staying in the mountain village of Eze or Eze Bord du Mer, closer to the coastline?

Depending upon your dates, parking could be an issue along the coast, and you may find it more convenient to take public transportation. There are bus routes that pass through Eze to Monte Carlo and Nice, and the Eze train station that sits below the village is connected to the village via another bus route. However, you will need to be watchful of when the bus routes stop for the day.

My first suggestion would be for you to spend a day in Nice and you could do a daytrip to Beaulieu sur Mer/Cap Ferrat/Villefranche sur Mer, one of my favorite parts of the Cote d'Azur. There is a bus from the village to Beaulieu sur Mer, but again, you will have to be careful about evening routes. You may also want to travel to Menton, and I would probably drive for that excursion.

Come back if you want more information on public transportation.

As you have chosen two very different places that are quite far apart I assume you have already done some research. If you are coming in summer St Tropez will be extremely busy while Eze will be extremely quiet (at night -in the day it is a magnet for day trippers).

In between the route is very scenic but avoid the motorway and stick to the coast. Cannes,Juan les Pins and Antibes will all be worth seeing. East of Nice the Corniches (Eze is on the Moyenne), Villefranche and Monaco. Inland drive around the Gorges du Loup.

It is true that the coast between Cannes and Monaco is congested and parking difficult so public transport -regular and cheap-is a good idea.
