Walk the Coulée Verte on Avenue Félix Faure/Boulevard Jean Jaurès
Both of these very grand streets – Avenue Félix Faure and Boulevard Jean Jaurès – begin on the seafront at Promenade des Anglais and sweep inland in a curvy symmetrical fashion. The space between them has been pedestrianised with lovely parks and gardens (the Promenade du Paillon, for example) and there are benches to sit after a nice stroll or to picnic. What’s more, there are fantastic playgrounds that will keep kids happy for a good couple of hours.
Walk the route that begins at the Jardins Albert 1er (The Gardens of Albert 1st), take in a drink (or a spot of lunch) at the Hotel Aston on the wonderful roof terrace and watch the kids lose their minds climbing the animal sculptures. The whole world is here on Sundays so it’s a great place to people-watch. If you want to continue, the Coulée Verte runs to the Museum of Modern & Contemporary Art (MAMAC), which is a great place to spend a few hours.
