We are off to a work sponsored trip to Barcelona August 6th-10th and have an opportunity to book a trip on our way there.
We have narrowed it down to the Monaco area and would love your help and opinion!
We generally like to see more "local" spots and not do as the tourist does - we like the local flavor, restaurants, culture, special hotels and doing special things!
With that said, I have two close friends that have mentioned Eve, Cap D'Ail and Juan Les Pins as not-as-known places I should absolutely visit.
We are looking for nice hotels - since work is paying for the rest we luckily have money to spend on great hotels and food. This trip is planned for July 31st-August 6th. We will be looking to fly into a close airport (recommendations please! Nice?) and rent a car (are we crazy to do that in August) and then will have to get to Barcelona August 6th.
So if you could please offer your opinions on where we should stay and cities we should visit - transportation to and from and anything else you can help with.
