In Villefranche we were thinking of renting a car and driving through Nice, Eze, Monaco and to the Monte Carlo. Any advice on particular places to go and whether or not driving ourselves is easy to do in this area?
In Livorno, we were planning on taking the train into Florence and then catching Pisa on the way back. I had read some posts stating it would be better to hire a taxi for the day instead. Any opinions on this? What would be the cost for hiring a driver for the day (without a tour guide) and are they readily available to hire at the port or do you have suggestions for who to contact to reserve?
Also- does anyone have any suggestions for private tour companies for Marseille? I am hoping to get Catherine but am afraid with my procrastination she may already be booked.
