After seeing the sights in the city, you can hire a car and drive to the nearby areas taking you to see the Notre Dame Del Garde which dates back to the 19th century. But best of all with car hire you will be able to drive to the hills and admire picturesque views overlooking the Mediterranean ocean. Of course you can do this by opting to travel with tour buses, but you will lose the sense of freedom you get when hiring a car.
