One of the French Riviera's most popular cities, Nice is a much sort after destination with holiday-makers, couples and honeymooners alike. So popular was the city in the 19th century with the English that the famous beach walkway was named after their northern visitors. The Promenade des Anglais snakes along the sea front and is a weekend favourite for locals, cyclists and skateboarders and a must do for all visitors.
On a scale of world beaches, Nice doesn't win any medals for comfort consisting largely of pebbles unless you venture into the privately owned man-made sand versions. However the pebbled version is protected for conservation reasons and the waterfront a must see for the sheer colour of the water if nothing else.
For the beach minded head to nearby Villefranche-sur-Mer, Antibes and of course Cannes. Other things to explore include the maze of streets that is the old town, Vieux Nice, its market and the many museums including the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art with great views from the roof terraces.
