posted in: Channel NCLFreestyle | 0

Relax during your scenic drive from Cannes to Nice. As you enter the city, you’ll drive along the Promenade des Anglais, a splendid palm lined boulevard stretching three miles along the Baie des Anges. You’ll pass landmarks such as the legendary Negresco, an imposing hotel with a Rococo façade and the Russian Orthodox Cathedral made with pink bricks, gray marble and vivid ceramics. Then arrive in Old Nice as you visit the city where tall houses, bright with flowers or drying laundry, shade the sun and keep the streets cool.

Here you’ll enjoy your walk on Cours Saleya, the elegant promenade of Old Nice, lined with shops and restaurants and with the famous flower market thats held here. Your drive continues passing the Regina Hotel to Cimiez Hill, a sophisticated part of Nice with many large villas. Pass the Franciscan Monastery, gardens and Roman arenas, before joining the highway back to Cannes.
Note: There is approximately 1 mile of walking on relatively flat terrain.
