Nice is perhaps most famous for its breathtaking coastal vistas, and nowhere is that more true than along the Promenade des Anglais. Often shortened simply to" La Prom," this stretch of coastline offers some of the most unfettered looks at the azure Mediterranean in the world. Depending on when you walk through this section of Nice, it can be a bustling hub of activity. There's plenty to do along the La Prom. You can have a bite to eat at one of its many cafes or relax on the pristine sand of Nice's beaches.
While La Prom is the perfect representation of Nice's natural appeal, the city is also home to many museums, with Musée Matisse standing out as one of the best.
