Our airfare is booked. Fly into Nice Sept 3rd and fly out 10 days later. Our flight arrives early and leaves late. This will be my third time in Europe and I will be traveling with my girlfriend. We are in our mid 20's and adventurous, we like to relax but usually we like to go as many places as we can. We were in Milan/Como/Switz/Greece in April. Never made it to the Italian Riviera and we would like to see it, possibly as far as the Cinque Terre. But I realize France has much to offer!
So my question is should we head to the Italian Riviera for 3-4 nights and then come back towards the French Riviera? Maybe stay in Santa Margherita, Camogli, or Remo?
We haven't booked our stays yet and I know we are pushing it (girlfriend just found out she could get off) . Part of me doesn't want to stay in Nice and part of me does, but I want to figure the rest of my trip first! What re some good quiet towns in the hills above Nice?
Thanks for any help!
