Travel snapshots: South of France
5 weeks in the South of France...
- Anika3, CNN iReport producer
My in-laws and some other family members live in and around Nice, FR and other members of the family live about 2 hours away towards Toulon. I was lucky enough to be able to stay in both locations and visit many, many places in between and we even ventured over to Italy a couple of times. I can say that as much as I wanted to visit Paris, I don't think that it would ever be able to compete with the South of France and its fabulous weather, beautiful sights, and friendly people.
The South of France is a wondrous and eclectic mix of old architecture, fresh markets, outdoor cafes, and beautiful beaches. I never ran out of things to do or see. We visited Monaco, St. Tropez, Six-Four-les-Plages, Villefranche-sur-mer, and many other wonderful places as well.
Thank goodness there is still so much more to see because I plan on going back again next year.
