Visitors to Antibes and the surrounding French Riviera will find a wealth of attractions to enjoy, from famous art museums and beautiful churches to theme parks for the kids. The heart of the French Riviera – and the place that’s home to many of these attractions – is the coastal city of Nice.
Full of old world charm, magnificent architecture and world famous art museums, Nice makes for a great holiday base or fascinating day trip. One of Nice’s highlights is the celebrated Promenade des Anglais, a palm-lined promenade that follows the 2.5 mile sweep of the Baie des Anges.
The Promenade des Anglais is not only an ideal spot for walking and admiring the sea, but also a favourite with cyclists, skaters and skateboarders, who have a dedicated lane. Scooters, bikes, skates and skateboards can all be hired at the nearby Roller Station. When you get tired of rolling or walking, collapse onto one of the promenade’s iconic blue chairs – look out for local sculptor Sabine Geraudie’s unusual homage to the seats, which is also on the waterfront. You’ll know it when you see it!
Other highlights to look out for along the Promenade des Anglais include the historic Hotel Negresco, a white fronted palatial-style building built in 1912 and topped with an iconic pink dome. Also keep a look out for the magnificent art deco Palais de la Méditerranée, located across from the Lido beach and now a five-star Hyatt Regency hotel.
After walking along the promenade, enter the city’s Old Town to see more of Nice’s best sights, including the Nice Cathedral, the Cours Saleya flower market and artist Henri Matisse’s former residence. It’s packed with cute narrow alleyways, excellent eateries and interesting shops.
Visitors will find a wide range of hotels near the Promenade des Anglais. Luxurious five-stars can be found on the promenade itself, while budget options are located up further towards the modern centre or towards the Old Town.
