French Riviera during FallHi all, I'm planning a trip with my parents to visit my brother in Nice (he's doing a school internship there) around late October - early November for about a week - 10 days. We plan to make Nice our base and drive around the area. My main questions are:
1. What to wear and what to expect from the weather? We are from South East Asia so "pleasantly warm", by experience, translate to very chilly for us. Also is it possible to wear dressy shoes (high heels etc) or should I stick to flat shoes?
2. My parents are nearing 60, what would be the friendly options for them to visit that are not too tiring and busy (other than vineyard excursion)?

21 - days get shorter, the temeratures are between + 18 the day over, + 5/8 in the middle of the night. It is wet-cold especially when the wind comes from the seasude. Colder when comeing down from the north, over the Alps. Nice and this part of the Riviera has a micro-climat, so it can strongly rain in Cannes, the sunshine over Nice and deep frog in Monaco in the same moment.
2 - Some peacefull excursions for example:
A full day into the Alps to Beuil, Valberg via the canyon of river Cians, back to Guillaume, Entreveaux by the canyon of river Dalius.
One more into the backland with stopps in Valbonne, Bar s/Loup, Greollieres, Gourdon and a visite of a perfum manufacture in Grasse.
Along the coast via Cannes and the pretty nice street at the coast (Coniche d'Or) to Frejus, via Bagnols en Foret to Fayence - back by Montauroux, Auribeau s/Siagne.
The near surroundings of Nice with Haut de Vagnes, St. Paul, Vence, St. Jeannet, Le Broc and back by La Roquette du Var to Nice
A side step to Italy by the motorway to San Remo, Brodighera, the principallity of Seborga, back by the very nice village of Apricale, Ventimiglia and why not the evening in Monaco.
