Cassis to Monaco

Hi l am traveling through from Cassis to Monaco from 27th August to 14th Sept and was wondering whether anyone could advise whether I should book accomodation in advance for each stop along the way as I'm not sure how long to book in each place.

One blog that I read suggested basing myself in Nice and doing day trips using the bus and train services to get about to each of the different destinations.

If possible if anyone could recommend the "must see" along the way it would be much appreciated.

Could anyone recommend?

Thanks

The usual coastal tourist hot spots on the Riviera are Cannes, Juan les Pins, Antibes, Nice, Villefranche and Monaco - in the order the train calls at them. The maximum travel time between Cannes and Monaco is 1 h 10 mins. Trains are regular cheap and run commuter fahion at least 2 an hour. In addition when you are travelling a go- anywhere day pass for tourists is available for 14 euro.

Coming by train from Cassis ( you change at Toulon) I would add Agay on the Esterel coast as another possible stopping off point.

Inland tourist spots in the back country behind Nice are the hill villages - St Paul de Vence and Eze are the closest and easily reached by bus from Nice.

The bulk of tourists have usually gone by late August - altho September sees an influx of the more affluent panama hat brigade - and IMO with a bit of phoning or emailing around you will not be sleeping on the beach. Nice is a good hub with lots of choice but a beach resort like Juan les Pins which has a very convenient train station and is close to everything will have plenty of vacancies then. Avoid Monaco as a place to stay.
