Stroll along the Promenade des Anglais
This long avenue that borders the Baie des Anges owes its name to the region’s tourist boom in the 19th century, when wealthy English families traveled to the Côte d’Azur in winter to make the most of the mild Mediterranean climate . Wide pavements reserved for pedestrians and a succession of public and private beaches make the Promenade des Anglais an essential place in Nice.
Explore the maze of streets in Old Nice
The old town of Nice has retained part of the Italian soul of the city. The narrow streets keep it cool in summer, and have many shops and restaurants. The baroque churches, the facades of the houses with windows hidden by shutters, the squares are all surprises as you stroll.
Visit the museums of Nice
Do you want to place your visit to Nice under the sign of culture? Many museums await you. Modern art lovers can push the doors of the MAMAC (Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Nice) or the National Marc Chagall Museum, history lovers prefer the Museum of Archeology of Nice-Cimiez or the Terra Amata museum, tourists in search of exoticism are often tempted by the Museum of Asian Arts… There is something for everyone, and one day will not be enough!
