Hi there folks,

I´m going in October to Nice, since my girlfriend´s brother lives there and from there I would like to explore the French and Italia Riviera.

From what I heard, I´m planning to stay a few days in Nice and visiting from there by public transportation at least Monaco and Cannes, even though I´ve been told that Cannes isn´t a great city, it´s famous because of the film festival. What would you recommend to visit near Nice? Saint-Tropez is worth a visit? What about Marseille, although is a bit far away?

After a few days visiting Nice and around, I´m planning renting a car and going to the Italian Riviera. After looking at the map we decided that we would go to Cinque Terre and stay there a couple of days. Between Nice and Cinque Terre, the only city that sounds familiar to me it´s Genoa. Is there any other city/village that we should visit?

One day is enough to visit Genoa? Just to sightseeing the main attractions?

And about Cinque Terre, how many days would you recommend to stay there at least? Where should I book a room? It would be great if there is free parking space. And how to travel between the villages?

For now is enough.
