The beaches

It will surprise no one that we begin our Unmissable by which attract millions of tourists. The Nice coastline has 15 private beaches and 20 public on just under 7km, five beaches are non smoking (Centenaire, Lenval, Sainte-Hélène, Bains militaires, CUM) and two with access to the sea is accessible to people with reduced mobility (Carras and Centenaire). Do not forget to bring a small beach mats if the rollers are not your friends.

The bus line 52 serves many of the beaches, Centennaire to Carras. The usual precautions should be observed, as on all the beaches in the world !

Some are hidden from the eyes of tourists, such as the reserve where Brice expects its wave (Lympia walk along the harbor, continue the Water sports and take the stairs leading to it) or, a little further, the Coco Beach.

private beach side, our advice is to enjoy a good organic meal and a lounger comfort in the Hi Beach. good rates and friendly service (47 Promenade des Anglais).


Old Nice.

"Le vieux" regulars say, is the most typical neighborhood of the city. Lose yourself in the narrow alleys of the old city and discover the treasures it hides.

We propose a roadtrip : From the Cours Saleya, get drunk smells of the traditional market and the flower market, admire the chapel of Mercy and the palace Sardinian residence of the prefect of Alpes-Maritimes by heading to the West and take rue Gassin. Since the place of the Palace of Justice, continue through the street of the Prefecture which backs the Sardinian palace. At the end of this street turn left (Ste-Reparate Street) and linger on Place Rossetti, the center of Old Nice (enter in Ste-Reparate Cathedral) toast ice cream at Fenocchio the incredible scents (violet, basil, rose...). Continue your way through Mascoïna Street to reach the central square and the Rue du Collet, right. Take it, discover the stalls and small handicraft shops to the Place Saint-François and admire the various historical buildings surrounding it (including the Palace of the Exchange and the Golden Eagle will host in some Nice weather Folk museum). To continue your discovery of Old Nice, extend your way through the street until arriving Pairolière "Chez René" which you will not resist to take a share of socca (Nice specialty peas chickpea flour) accompanied a glass of rosé (an odds-de-Provence, obviously). Thus sated, end this Pairolière street up towards Piazza Garibaldi, with its royal place of organization.

Here, several intineraries available to you : back and left with the Museum of Modern Art and the Promenade du Paillon to the sea; in front with Republic Street and its shops which will take you to the Palace of Expositions, the Olympic swimming pool and ice rink; right with instead of Pines regarded by many as the Marais Nice.

This street offers a unique vision of the city, left the antique leading the way to Lympia port and the place Ile de Beauté and the right, the old town and the Eberlé mounted brings you to the top of hill Chateau (do not look, Louis XIV did destroy!). Our walk through the street Ségurane brings us to the majestic monuments to face Death Méditeranée the sea and the port of Nice. A few steps further, advanced Rauba Capeu which takes its name hats that flew in the wind, offering a fantastic view of the Bay of Angels on one side, the Cap d'Antibes further port and Villefranche-sur-mer on the other side. After passing the Hotel Suisse, slip into the free public elevator and climb up the Chateau Hill (the most courageous -and those who want the most beautiful points of view- take the stairs and make a Escalde before the Tour Bellenda).

It's on the shelf of the Chateau hill that ends this itinerary to give you the opportunity to discover, at your convenience, the hill and waterfall, its views, its vestiges, its amazing cemetery, his Wall fair etc.


The Promenade des Anglais

Historically this road to the seafront was a space where people walked and goods, an ordinary walk. Today it is more than that: an East-West line of communication certainly, but also a tourism showcase, an atmosphere that artists seek has always been to capture.

The Promenade des Anglais is also a timeline. It is indeed built over the changes in society, industrial and social progress but also its own history. The result is a marked architecture of all the influences which it is the child.

They were inaugurated by President of the Republic in 2010 on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the Nice Attached to France (1860).

We finally arrive on the Promenade des Anglais: left, Centennial Beach with, opposite the Monument Centennial on the forecourt of the Théâtre de Verdure, a few steps after the mouth of the Paillon flowing under the boardwalk of the same name, a kind of green corridor between the new city of the old town. on the north sidewalk, a bust of Jean Medecin former mayor of the city that gave its name to the city to the major shopping atère few dozen meter away.
