Nice can be considered the capital of the Côte d’Azur, a city always on the move, always partying, which will surprise you with its trendy clubs, picturesque bistros and crowded restaurants.
To the east of the port there is a pedestrian area (Les Flots Bleus) which leads to a large shopping center, the CAP 3000. Along the port, there is a cycle path that reaches Nice, passing the bridge of the Var river.
The ornithological area in Saint-Laurent-du-Var is located between the sea and the mountains, located between the CAP 3000 shopping center and Nice airport. This ornithological reserve is a privileged place of passage for migratory birds. 264 bird species, nearly half of those found in Europe.
Nice can be considered the capital of the Côte d’Azur, a city always on the move, always partying, which will surprise you with its trendy clubs, picturesque bistros and crowded restaurants. Nice has always stood out for its festive atmosphere, the artistic panorama and multiculturalism, values that have always founded its millennial history. The city is crowded at any time of the year: it will be the retro charm of the old city, the elegant belle époque architecture, the languid life that takes place around the port, the many art museums or the wonderful walks along the sea , but Nice is a city to be discovered in every season.
THE BEACHES IN SAINT-LAURENT-DU-VAR
In the extension of the port of Le Cros de Cagnes, just before Nice, the coast of St-Laurent-du-Var is one of the most famous tourist sites, thanks to the port, very lively in the evening, the numerous restaurants, cafes and discos. For swimming, the best beaches of St Laurent du Var are located in the area of the promenade des Flots Bleus.
For a holiday, St-Laurent is a good option provided that you find accommodation near the points of interest (port and promenade des Flots Bleus) and that you have a place to park your car (all parking is now paid). You must also be a lover of the very lively life of this area and the pebble beaches (since 2014, in summer, two beaches are set up with gray sand). At both ends of the Promenade des Flots Bleus there are some sandy beaches.
The beaches extend for 2 kilometers (one west of the port) to the mouth of the Var. There are also two private beaches set up with sand. The city center of Saint-Laurent-du-Var is located away from the sea.
