No neighbourhood seduces like Nice's opulent, palm-lined beachfront promenade, which has been luring tourists since the 1800s. The New Town and Promenade des Anglais are not only the heart of Nice's beach scene but also the city's commercial core, packed with hotels, restaurants and big-name shops. If a classy, carefree seaside vacation is what you're after, you've found the right spot.
