Nice is of course famous for its seafront, known as the Promenade des Anglais. This place of escape, lined with public and private beaches from Nice airport to the port.
In the summer the Promenade des Anglais is very popular, especially during the big events like the National Festivals where there are fireworks, dancers and painters.
There is a strong contrast between the morning at sunrise, when the sea is calm and the beaches are empty, and then at the end of the morning, when the season arrives, the beaches are full of people and life.
This view of the horizon in the heart of the city gives a feeling of freedom and relaxation that should not be missed.
We advise you to go for a walk in the heart of Old Nice, with the charm of its small streets, its Provençal shops, the flower market of the Cours Saleya, the specialities of Nice such as the Socca, the beignets, the farcis, the pan bagnats, the gnocchis, the pissaladière.
But the old town of Nice also has a life when the sun goes down, notably with its numerous restaurants on the Cours Saleya, as well as the Nice restaurants in the small streets, with a very atypical charm.
You will be seduced by the scents, the colours and the charm of this old city which make its reputation.
