Arrive this Friday, fingers crossed

Will be my wife, daughter and new son in law , staying in Villefranche. They marry on thursday . ( they were supposed to get married in Mexico in January , but had to cancel it at the last minute due to my daughter having a cyst on her ovaries ) Want to make this a lovely 4 night stay with no stress . First thing need to have clear is buses from airport . Presuming we need 98 or 99 bus to Nice then get 100 to Villefranche . Plan to have a day looking around Villefranche , day in Nice , and a day in Monaco . How do we make it a fun four days , bearing in mind we like an odd beer or two . Cheers .

London /Nice

the terrace at the top of the Meridian in Nice for cocktails and or beers (expensive but if it is good weather the view is not to be missed)

Carpaccio on the quay in Villefranche;

Paloma beach at Cap Ferrat

La Pinede at Cap D'Ail -train from Villefranche the restaurant is signed from the station ---2 minute walk but go at lunchtime for the dining next to the sea and again brilliant on a sunny day -50 E per person plus wine

firstly merci beaucoup for your swift responses .

Yes my daughter is very well now thankyou . She is expecting a baby in september .

What we like ? As one couple are in their fifties and the other early twenties I'm not sure . Though I am young in my outlook . I don't intend to stifle them on their honeymoon but would like to spend some lunches and evenings eating good food and drinking in reasonably priced food establishments . I personally run , cycle and love karaoke but will not be doing that on this break , it would be too selfish . We normally do package holidays to Spain etc so are not used to the more sophisticated life . We are more pub grub than posh nosh . But we are willing to educate ourselves .

Jotted down Castle Hill , Promenade de anglais and the Russian Cathedral as things to stroll around but am open to any advise .
