Palm-lined promenade des Anglais, paid for by Nice’s English colony in 1822, is a fine stage for a stroll. It’s particularly atmospheric in the evening, with Niçois milling about and epic sunsets. Don’t miss the magnificent facade of Hôtel Negresco , built in 1912, or art deco Palais de la Méditerranée , saved from demolition in the 1980s and now part of a 4-star palace. The promenade follows the whole Baie des Anges (4km) and has a cycle and skating lane.

For a fantastic family outing, rent skates or scooters at Roller Station and whizz along the Prom. You’ll need some ID as a deposit. Rentals include protective gear (helmet and pads).
