I just came back from Nice France last week. The beach is amazing just like the city's name, nice. It was hot, about 30 C and sunshine everyday during the three days I stayed. The city transport is very cheap and convenient. You can buy a single ticket from the machine on each tram station and use it on both tram and bus within 74 mins. After you get on a tram or bus, you need to insert the ticket into a machine at the entraince and take it out. The machine will print the time and the 74 mins will be counted from now on.

Just one thing I experienced when purchasing the tram ticket was unexpected. When I was looking up the map for the direction in a tram station a young man came to me and asked me in English, "do you need help? where are you going?" After I told him my destination he pointed the route in the map and asked me "do you have coins? two Euros, ok?" I replied " I have only one Euro coin, can I use card?" He " yes, you can and take the one Euro coin from me. Then I understood the one Euro is a tip for his service and the ticket itself costed just one Euro. But I was not very happy with this unexpected service because I know how to use the ticket machine and I just need some time to look up the map.

A good experience was the Office of Traveller in Nice was very helpful. It is located very close to the SNCF station. They provide every traveller who pop in a map of Nice city and even print out the bus timetable that you need. Many thanks to them.

This seems to be in the category for the football side, not travelling in France, hence it's OT.
