Head to the Promenade des Anglais for a taste of everyday life in Nice. Stroll past skateboarders and young families en route to well-known landmarks, such as the Palais de la Mediterranee, Place Massena, and Hotel Negresco, in addition to some of the poshest beaches in Provence.

Book a Provence day trip to bundle your visit with nearby attractions in Cannes, St. Paul de Vence, or even neighboring Monaco. While a sightseeing tour or bike tour provides the benefit of a local guide, you can also go on your own on dedicated walking, biking, and skating lanes, stopping to rest at the iconic blue chairs and cabanas lining the paved walkway.
