Place Ile-de-beauty is a beautiful area of Nice to explore on foot. Unfortunately on the day we walked the area it was raining so didn’t look it’s best. Norma great place for a photo opportunity.

The “I love Nice” sign overlooks the bag with beautiful views of the beach and hotel strip. It’s a nice spot for a picture as well.

Lots of people walk along the front up to the #I LOVE NICE sign and then turn around. But a short walk further just around the corner takes you to a beautiful marina. It is quieter than the main Nice town and has a good...More
