Should I Hire a Car in Nice?

Hi,

I have a qustion.

I will be traveling from Avignon ( Couple and 11yr Daughter) where I will have a car to my self for 3 days and will leave for Nice for 3 night .

I plan to visit Monaco, Cannes, Antibes, Eze etc during my stay along with some beach activity Snorkeling etc apart of regular sightseeing at Nice.

My question are

1. Should I drive down from Avignon to Nice. Is that a good idea or I take Train

2. Is parking an issue in Nice ?

3. Can I drive to above mentioned places from Nice or again Train is better option.

My agent has suggested to take car in Avignon and in Nice to take train everywhere.

Please suggest..

Cheers....

Your agent is probably correct. Monaco, Cannes, Antibes, are all easy to get to by train and Eze is a short bus ride from Nice. A car can be a liability in Cote d'Azur.
