The seafront boulevard of the Promenade des Anglais morphs into the Quai des Etats-Unis on its eastern edge, leading towards the rocky hill of “Le Château” and Nice’s old port. The commercial heart of central Nice and the city’s historic core at Vieux Nice stretch north of the waterfront, as does the posh hilltop suburb of Cimiez.

Nice Neighborhoods

Promenade des Anglais

The wide, four-mile-long “La Prom” is perfect for biking, alfresco dining, strolling, and people-watching from the ubiquitous blue chairs that line the Baie des Anges waterfront.

Vieux Nice

The atmospheric streets of Old Nice, lined by pastel yellow- and ochre-colored buildings, compose the city’s historic core, which today teem with shops, restaurants, bars, and markets.

Quai des Etats-Unis / Le Château

The scenic “La Prom” strip, which becomes Quai des Etats-Unis on its eastern end, unfolds between View Nice and the rocky hill known as Le Château.

Central Nice

Unfolding north of Promenade des Anglais’ eastern edge, this modernized commercial city center bustles with shopping strips, hotels, plazas, and the main train station.


An affluent residential neighborhood in northeast Nice, Cimiez lays claim to lavish villas, fantastic museums, a Franciscan monastery, and ruins dating back to ancient Rome.

Vieux Port

The animated, Italianesque Old Port offers scenic harbor vistas over both massive yachts and tiny fishing boats. Come for a pleasant stroll or to dine at one of the seafood restaurants.
