Simple, peaceful, solid Norman architecture. Tourists are to be quiet. A working abbey. Beautiful at day, with the sea about, and all lit up and beautiful at night. We liked going in mid-January. Few tourists there.

An enormous amount of history at this site. Really well worth the visit, though there is a fair bit of climbing and walking through the Abbey and its various chapels. The views from the top are spectacular. Efficient navette bus service too.

Free for kids, €10 for adults, the visit is amazing. Unbelievable and really interesting for kids too. If you have time please take a guide. The views are terrific and when you think they started the construction at the 10th century you will be amazed

This is such a magical place. Its worth the 10e (plus 3 for audioguide) to get into the abbey. In January the abbey was not too crowded in the morning, but the main commercial street was horrid - you could not move at all. The...More

The tides vary and every hotel has a calendar. You do not need to be super fit but the abbey is not really handicapped accessible. If you need to go slowly, the crowd will just walk around you. It is steep but there are not... More

Villages trips by bus (33 Replies)
Hello all, my hubby and I will be in Nice beginning to mid July for 2 weeks, this is our 2nd trip to the area, so we would like to explore villages a bit more. We will not have a car, so will take either a bus or a train. I need an advice to which buses to take to certain villages, how much time to allocate to each and how to group them together. For example we would like to see: 1. Haut de Cagnes, St. de Vence & Vence. 2. La Turbie, Roquebrune Cap Martin 3. Biot, Villeneuve Lubet...More

Just re-read the OP and you say Roquebrune Cap Martin. Note that this is not the same as Roquebrune Village. The village is a perched village high up. Roquebrune Cap Martin refers to the spit of land that sticks out into the sea between Menton and Monaco. It's not really a village, but there's a coastal path around it. If that's where you want to go, then once you get to Monaco, take the 100 bus as far as the Casernes bus stop (I think it's called that) on the way to Menton. Walk downhill...More
