Promenade des Anglais
You don’t have to be high up to find a fantastic panorama. The Promenade des Anglais is quintessential Nice, where you can find everyone hanging out, all doing their own thing. “Le prom” as the locals call it, stretches for seven miles (11 kilometres), so on a clear day you can see from the airport to the tip of Nice’s Old Port. Buy an ice cream and walk the route, or if you’re feeling less energetic, sit on one of the traditional blue chairs and read a good book.
