Nice In-A-Day

Highlights of central Nice on foot or by bike

This tour of the exciting modern City Centre includes everything just outside the Old City. (Vieux Nice can also be included if you have time - check out my Nice's Best app).

It begins on the world renowned Promenade des Anglais, flanked by the beautiful blue of the Baie des Anges and leads to the stunning place Massena. Here you can indulge yourself in the designer boutiques if you so wish! The Itinerary finishes on the expansive place Garibaldi only a short distance from the impressively named Bassin Lympia.

Before you begin: Visit the Tourist Office on the Promenade des Anglais and obtain a map of the town.

Almost everything included in the itinerary is on the flat so walking is easy. However, it is quite a climb up steps to Château Hill (lift/elevator or Tourist Train are available) if you choose to include this.
