Thanks to the many wonderful posts by the members on TA we've bought our tickets to visit France Sept. 1-12. We're working with 11 nights and will probably look to split the nights evenly between Paris and Nice. I have a few questions if anyone would be kind enough to offer any advice.
Would you be inclined to stay 6 nights in Paris and 5 nights in Nice or the other way around?
Once in Nice we will be staying at the Le Palais De La Mediterranee and taking day-trips to many of the great places mentioned on other posts. However, would it make more sense to travel by train or to rent a car to visit places like Monte Carlo, but more specifically the towns that may not be so accessible by car? Also, would you recommend staying only 3-4 nights in Nice and maybe 2 nights somewhere else like Villefranche?
Finally, this is our honeymoon so I think we will be looking to get car transfers to and from the airport. Is it best to set this up through the hotel or through a private service on our own?
I know that many of the questions I have are almost wholly based on personal preference but I wanted to get the perspective and insight from people that have visited the area.
Thank you again,
