    Further afield
  • Cannes - wonderful shops and all the attractions of a large resort. Climb the hill through the old town to the chateau, which is now a museum, for a panoramic view over the marinas, old and modern towns and the bay. The main street for shops is Rue d'Antibes. Antiques market every Monday in the Marché Forville close to bus terminus.

  • Nice - the Promenade des Anglais/Quai des Etats Unis leading to the flower market in the old town and on to the old port. Breathtaking views from the top of the cliff at the eastern end of the beach where the Chateau once stood - there is a lift up the cliff.

  • Horse Race Track (Hippodrome) at Cagnes-sur-Mer. Racing most days - flat, hurdles and trotting. The 200 bus goes near it.

  • Grasse - the perfume manufacturing capital of the world - they say. You get wafts of perfume as you walk around the wonderful old town. You can visit three of the factories and even make up your own perfume in one of them.

  • Haut Cagnes - the old town of Cagnes-sur-Mer. Walk up if you are fit otherwise take the free bus (navette) from the Cagnes-sur-Mer bus station. Stunning views from the top. The chateau can be visited, it's now an art gallery, with even better views from the tower.

  • Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild. Beautiful palace and gardens.

  • Cap d'Ail sea edge footpath. This a path very similar to the one at Cap d'Antibes. It is concrete (very well constructed) that runs for 3 kilometres over rocks around the headland giving stunning views, and a fascinating walk past beautiful villas. You can get to it from the SNCF station at Cap d'Ail. There are 2 restaurants along the route

  • Needs a car. Musee de l'Automobiliste at the first services on the motorway towards Cannes. Can also be accessed from Route de Grasse. Entry 7€.

  • Needs a car. Eze, Moyenne Corniche and Grande Corniche
    Eze is a village built around a conical rock with a ruined castle on the top - straight out of Disney! To get there drive along the Moyenne Corniche towards Monaco. This starts at the old port in Nice, runs along the cliffs half way up and gives fabulaous views of Villefranche, Cap Ferrat etc.. Having been thoroughly amazed by Eze continue the adventure by returning to Nice via the Grande Corniche which runs near the top of the cliffs. From it you will find turnoffs to Fort de la Revere and Mont Bastide which go to the peaks.

  • The mountains - caves and gorges. Study your road map.
