Im thinking of going from Amsterdam to Nice (only cos the flights are cheap) and I wanted to get your expert advice on whether it is possible to do in 6/7 days or should i allow longer, and the best way to get from A to B.
If you are flying, then sure, why not. Nice is a nice city (no pun intended ), but not a place I'd spend much more than 4/5 days without a good reason.... so 6/7 would definitely be plenty (my personal opinion only of course!)
With getting from A to B, do you mean in Nice? Or from AMS to NICE? In case one, I found most distances pretty walkable. In case two, I'd fly because as you mentioned, you can get great deals on flights now!!!
All I know is, don't take the eurrail backwards through Paris, France.
Ahhhhhh! That was the wrong smillie!!
I was thinking of hiking from Amsterdam to Nice, but not sure how to do it, i think maybe train or bus would be my best bet.
Has anyone done this route before? Do you have any tips?
A week for both A and N would be too much if you would visit only these two cities. Visiting Amsterdam takes three days and Nice takes two days. In the remaining days it is worth visiting neighbouring places, such as Volendam, Marken and the Zaanse Schans (within 30 minutes by bus from Amsterdam) or Monaco (within 30 minutes by train from Nice). Travelling by plain (Easyjet) between A and N would be the quickest and the cheapest option.
DOn't go to Volendam, go to Edam instead. Little city next to Volendam. The only thing Volendam still has is Stinking busses full with Japanese People. Edam has a lot of history and culture. Cheese markets to show tourists how they did that trading 100 years ago. Also very nice city centre, in which it is common to find houses dating back to the 1600's
