The best walks to do in Nice in winter

To make the most of Nice's wonderful Mediterranean climate, Hotel Locarno presents the best walks on the famous French Riviera.

  • Walk along the Promenade des Anglais located less than 2 minutes walk from our 3 star hotel to take a deep breath of fresh air while admiring the sea and the blue sky. In the late afternoon, watch the sunset from the comfort of one of Nice's typical blue chairs, or directly on the pebble beach.

  • One of the best hiking trails to discover in Nice is the coastal path. This magnificent path runs along the Mediterranean sea between Nice and Villefranche-sur-Mer and offers an exceptional view all along. Whether you are a sportsman or an amateur, this path is still little known by tourists and is very pleasant to walk and makes you discover postcard landscapes as you can rarely see them.

  • To discover the city in a minimum of time, consider renting a blue bike or an electric bike!  No less than 155 kilometers of bike paths serve the city of Nice for the pleasure of inhabitants and tourists. To rent an electric bike, go to the Bouticycle store located at the foot of the Hotel Locarno Nice.

  • Nice is as beautiful seen from the inside as from the outside! To admire the city from the heights, Hotel Locarno Nice offers you the best viewpoints of the city:

    • The Colline du Château: located at the foot of the Quai des Etats-Unis, the Colline du Château offers an exceptional view of the Baie des Anges, Old Nice and the port. It is accessible on foot, by stairs or by elevator.

    • The Mont-Boron park: between Nice and Villefranche-sur-Mer, the Mont-Boron park offers an incredible panorama on Nice, the Cap Ferrat peninsula and Villefranche-sur-Mer. You have to be prepared to climb one of the paths of the park, but believe us, the show that awaits you at the top is worth the detour!
