Great port, easy to embark the ship. Nice is wonderful, especially the flower market and the old town. Took trips to Monaco and St Paul de Vence, both spectacular.

I would not do the Flamingo Show in Barcelonia from the ship. It was terrible. We got a 25% discount for the excusion. We should have gotten all our money back because we were treated like sheep as we were herded in a hot stuffy room for 45 minutes before the show began. We were given a bad glass of Sangria and were all the way in the back of a room with old wooden tables. The dancers were about a football field away. All this for 90 dollars each!! Read Less

Lovely beach and town as you get off the ship. We took the train to Monaco which was well worth the visit. Train good value and run regularly and only took about 20 minutes.

After taking the tender to the shore we walked to the train station and for 3 euros each we visited the amazing place that is Monaco and Monte Carlo. An excellent day albeit very, very hot.

Nice port but little to do. We chose to take the train to Monaco to watch the Grand Prix under our own steam as the excursions on board were ridiculously expensive. Train was only 8 euros return.

We actually started in Villefranche, not Nice and opted to do it ourselves. None of the ship excursions appealed so we planned to head up into Provence to St. Paul de Vence. Well worth the effort! (It wouldn't have been as much effort if I'd taken better notes.) I bought the train ticket (and that's a short walk from the pier) to the Cagnes-sur-Mer and then we got off a stop too early (Cros de Cagnes). Oops! Instead of waiting an hour for another train, we wandered the area a bit, marveled at a street market that might as well have been a mall for the variety it sold and then defaulted to calling Uber. Our driver was prompt, took us through gorgeous countryside and tiny, winding roads (some so small that he had to back up to make room for oncoming traffic) and got us to St. Paul in short order (much faster than the bus would have). I highly recommend this town. It's a medieval walled city on a hill overlooking the Provence countryside in all directions filled with art galleries and cafes. We shopped, took a ton of pictures, had a wonderful lunch on La Tilleul's patio until a storm started coming in, bringing much colder temperatures and gray skies. We had coffee and dessert inside. Then caught the bus back into Nice proper. It was a long bus ride that deposited us in the middle of Nice nowhere near the train station (which, again, was my fault for not researching the proper route to get back), not that we necessarily had time for the train at that point. Uber to the rescue again, except I picked the wrong Villefranche port. Luckily, hubby took a picture and a local at the pier directed our driver to the right pier. We arrived back with 20 minutes to spare before the last tender. Whew. Of course, the weather had blown in and the tender ride was a rollercoaster with water bashing the front of the little boat. The pilot was a hero for navigating us safely through that. Needless to say, it took a couple of glasses of wine before I was calm from all the excitement! Read Less

Saturday was the perfect day as all the open market in the old village were open. We strolled through the fragrant flower market, admired the fresh fruits & vegetables and shopped for the aromatic vegetable soaps that are famous in that area. They make great little gifts to bring home. We saw the old churches, le palais de justice and walked the Promenade des Anglais. Then we took the elevator to the Chateau de Colline and took in the breathtaking views of Nice. Giant yachts were parked on one side and sunbathers walked the beach on the other. The sea was a pure blue and the weather was perfect. We highly recommend this trip or if you have difficulty walking, take the petit train. It does a 45 min circle of the old town & the colline and is perfect for a quick overview of the sights. Read Less
