Promenade des Anglais
A walkway along the glorious French Riviera, the Promenade des Anglais represents one of the best places to visit for beach lovers on holiday in Nice.
Visitors to Nice can travel the length of the Promenade des Anglais in a number of ways - while it's one of the city's main thoroughfares, the promenade has also been pedestrianized to facilitate leisurely walks along the Mediterranean. The adjacent strip of beach also means there will be no hurry to rush along the Promenade des Anglais if you prefer a day in the sun.
Le Prom: Perfect for leisure holidays
A beach holiday does not get much better than Nice in the summertime, and many choose to spend their days along the Promenade des Anglais. With its fantastic views over the crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean, in addition to the many shops and cafes surrounding it, the Promenade des Anglais is a must-see on summer holidays in Nice.
Nice's largest festival, the Nice Carnival, also visits the Promenade des Anglais each February. The weather may be milder, but the spirit of the city explodes in fantastic floats and parades, as well as the famous Battle of Flowers procession down the promenade.
The Promenade des Anglais also lies close to other Nice attractions, such as the Nice Russian Orthodox Cathedral and the MAMAC museum, so there's plenty else to see when visiting.
