  Promenade des Anglais

Favorite thing: Walk along 'La Promenade des Anglais'. It starts on Casino Ruhl (1, Promenade des Anglais).

It gets really crowded here in the summer, but it's less crowded in winter. In Nice, winter means you are going to have the warmest weather in France (between 5 to 15 Celsius), so take advantage of it and admire the landscape!

Fondest memory: When my oldest sister first saw Promenade des Anglais, she said it reminded her of Avenida Atl?ntica, which is the world famous avenue along the shore of Copacabana in Rio de Janeiro. No wonder Rio de Janeiro and Nice became sister cities in April of 1977!!!!

If you want to check the slight resemblance, check Avenida Atlântica livecam (choose the "Avenida Atlântica esquina da Avenida Rainha Elizabeth da Bélgica" cam):

P.S.: Don't forget the time zone difference!
