Promenade des Anglais
The Promenade des Anglais (Walk of the English) stretches along the seafront between the beach and the road. It is constantly busy with promenaders, dog-walkers, joggers, cyclists, skaters and sight-seers sitting on the iconic blue chairs to enjoy the deep azure of the sea in the Baie des Anges.
In the late 18th century, the English adopted Nice, then a sleepy town, as a place to escape the harsh English winter. One particularly nasty winter, many beggars from northern France drifted south to Nice so the wealthy English put them to work building a beachfront walkway. The City of Nice stepped in to increase the scale of the project. These days the locals just call it The Promenade.

Doing what: Ferrari Sports Car Experience from Nice
If this could be given 10 stars, I would give it 10. Expensive, but well worth it. Amazing. Thrilling. Unforgettable. Philippe made the whole experience even better. What a fine man he is. I gave this to my friend as a 70th birthday gift. It's a gift he will NEVER forget. Wow!! Thank you, Philippe, for making the experience extra special. We both wish you well.
Just head for the seafront and you'll find yourself on the Promenade des Anglais.
