Ci-dessous quelques exemples de petites ballades toute proches 

1) go to Place Garibaldi, cross it and continue on rue Cassini ! you come direct on the port of Nice with the beautiful "Place of the Ile de Beauté" and the church ! then you can walk around , have a look on the boats and choose the right part (then you can make a walk untill the hill of the castle) or go to the left and visit behind the port the nice landscapes along the boulevard Franck Pilatte. If you are courageous, take a walk untill Mont Boron and Fort du Mont Alban
