Most Instagrammable Spots in Nice

14 Aug 2019
Nice, like many places on the French Riviera, is gold for photography enthusiasts who post their snaps on Instagram. Not only do people capture sea views in their pictures, but the narrow streets of Nice and chic front doors on Promenade des Anglais also present unique perspectives. Also, the beautiful gardens in Nice are full of bright colourful flowers, perfect for a good background in snaps.

Instagrammable Spots are:

Promenade des Anglais

Promenade des Anglais is one of the most famous streets in Nice that stretches on the Mediterranean coast. People arriving in Nice take a long relaxing walk on the promenade to get a feel of the culture and beauty of Nice and its people. There are also bicycle and segway lanes on the promenade. The stony beach receives mixed reviews, some people appreciate its close proximity to main core areas and the seats along the beach where people can sit, while others complain about the stones on the beach. Restaurants and Cafes are available on the promenade but shops are not many here.

Monument aux Morts

Located right at the bottom of Castle Hill on Quai Rauba Capeau in Place Guynemer, the Monument aux Morts is a war memorial constructed to honour 4,000 people of Nice who lost their lives during the first world war. Built in the 1920s at 32 metres high, this monument to the dead has remained a historical centrepiece in Nice and the French Riviera. Roger Seasal designed the monument and ensured that there was a fusion of the structure and the historical Castle Hill. The white neutral look wrapped on its sides with green shrubs and rocks from the hill perfect the whole look.

Vieille Ville

Vieille Ville is the Old Town found at the bottom of Castle Hill (La Colline du Chateau) that is heavily influenced by the Italian culture. The beauty of the Old Town lies in the narrow streets rich in earth neutral colours that scream Italy and the way people lived here before Nice became part of France in 1860. The central square here, Place Rossetti, is the best place to start, there are plenty of Cafes and attractions such as Sainte Reparate Cathedral. Also, Cours Saleya Markets are the heart of the Vieille Vieille and loved by people who want to shop for local food and items. Food shops, shopping streets, and art galleries are all part of the Old Town fun.

La Chaise Bleue de SAB

La Chaise Bleue de SAB is a big blue chair of SAB placed on a block of concrete, in a tilted position, that brings fun to the seashore of Nice. It is right on the Promenade des Anglais. The artist who created the chair, Sabine Géraudie, fell in love with the city of Nice and wanted to visibly display this structure as a symbol of his love for the city. Many people are inspired by this unique urban art and their minds get creative. The actual location is 107 Quai des Etats-Unis, near the famous park and gardens, Jardin Albert 1er. Hangers from the 1930s were used to create the chair.


Jardin Albert I

Right in the city centre lies Jardin Albert 1er, running from Place Massena all the way to Vieux Nice via the Promenade des Anglais. The 1800’s gardens boast of being one of the oldest gardens, open to the public, in Nice. Plants and flowers that are placed at the gardens come from all over the world and come in different colours and species. After recent renovations, better seating, shady areas, clean restrooms, and walkways were created. This park suits visitors with kids as there are play areas with swings, water fountain, and other kids playing activities. Most importantly they areas are fenced and hence deemed safe for families with kids.
