Drving a van around Nice and Marseille

We have a group of six planning to visit Nice and Marseille between 28th Sept. till 3rd Oct; how busy it would be and how difficult to drive a van in the vicinity?

Driving in major towns should be okay, parking perhaps a bit dicey depending on the van height and width. Driving in any of the small perched villages could be difficult.

Smaller vehicles are always easier and Catullus is right, if you want to go to places like Biot or Tourettes sur Loup, it will be a challenge. You will be able to do it, it will just likely take you longer to find a place to park a big van.

Both Nice and Marseille have large car parks. In Nice (and possibly Marseille, I can't remember) they also tell you which lot has empty spaces.

I don't know what car parks are like in HK but be warned, they are tight in the south of France. You will be able to do it but will marvel how you did.

Once when we were in Tourettes-sur-Loup we saw a Mercedes truck trying to back up on a narrow street. It quickly became entertainment for everyone in the vicinity.
