- Gorgeous & lively
- On the sea so beach time
- Close to Italy, so you get both types of food!
- Small but easy to get around
- The Picasso Museum -- We both loved it..and the AC it provided
- Interesting Night Walks- we saw fire dancers, naked photo shoots and yachts the size of a walmart.
- HOT in the summer
- Location matters-- even though we loved the airbnb we stayed at, it was about a 15-20 minute hot and sweaty walk to the edge of town. If you want to have the full experience you might want to stay in town.
- Kind of far from some of the more famous Riviera areas like Nice, Monaco. You might consider renting a car if you want to explore all the Riviera areas.
- La Caravand Passe- A gem of a cafe a little away from the main drag. We found it on the walk from our airbnb to town. There is a cafe behind an adorable shop (think Terrain) and a tiny patio to have a drink and fresh, simple food.
- Le Vauban - We ordered the Menu here (three courses and then you often get little nibbles in-between called amuse-bouche), and this place had my FAVORITE amuse-bouche-- tomatoes in a pesto sauce topped with a mozzarella fluff-- think a little more stiff and porous mozzarella whip cream. It was amazing. A little more dressy here, I would suggest no shorts.
- Gelato: Since this area is so close to Italy, it's a great place to get gelato. But go to the places that aren't super fancy and say Italian gelato (not gelati).
