Looks like I might end up in Cannes

Carlton is what I'm hearing....

But 2 more points options that look good are the JW Marriott
and the Boscolo Exedra in Nice

Nice, Cannes, Monaco  3 Places I thought about seeing
I figured I would fly and stay in NICE since it has Kosher restaurants and flights

3 Full Days Should I break my trip up 1 day per city?


any Suggestions will be appreciated greatly.


Also which Hotel would you recommend Cash or points
Is it Ecnomical - to rent a  Car Rental to get from Cannes to Kosher restaurants
Cannes to Nice
or Cannes to Monte Carlo etc.

Or should I stick with Uber and Train?

I believe parking in Monaco is hard to find. Not sure about Cannes. I'd imagine it depends how often you plan on going. I'd prob stick to just Ubering. Unless you're gonna go hopping over to nearby villages etc.. even then you can use the train.

Cannes is entirely walkable and a car would only be a nuisance

Planning on spending 3 nights in Monte Carlo. Has anyone stayed in either the Fairmont or Meridian there?

We were in Nice for Shabbat (in a rental apartment) 2 years ago and really enjoyed it. Felt more 'authentic' than Cannes, as there is a local community. They do Friday night dinner at Chabad restaurant for reasonable charge.
The range and quality of restaurants is better there than elsewhere, can't speak to hechshers as I eat non-Glatt and non-CY (shoot me if you will!)

Thanks for the info. We won’t be staying over Shabbos so that’s not an issue. The friends we are going with are very set on staying in Monte Carlo so I was just wondering about these 2 hotels specifically.
