Visit Nice with your family

Nice is the capital of the French Riviera and the ideal place for a family weekend or holiday. The Hotel Locarno Nice gives you 3 essential sightseeing ideas to make your family stay in Nice truly unforgettable. Visit Nice with your family to stock up on sunshine and fun!


The timeless Promenade des Anglais

Just 200 metres from the Hotel Locarno, don't miss out on the famous Promenade des Anglais. It has recently been renovated, much to the delight of walkers, joggers and cyclists. As well as enjoying a wonderful walk along 5 km of sea front adapted to pushchairs, children can have fun on the pebble beach, take a swim, play ducks and drakes or just watch the Nice fishermen at work.

The Promenade des Anglais is a very popular spot for families in Nice, so live like a local, enjoy your stay in the family room at the Hotel Locarno and visit the Promenade des Anglais!


The Promenade du Paillon in Nice

Since 2012, the Promenade du Paillon , Nice's greenway, has been a top spot for families visiting Nice. With a range of children's games areas organised according to age range and a reflecting pool giving kids a chance to play in the water risk-free, the Promenade du Paillon is a great way to round off a walk through Vieux Nice or the city centre.

The greenway is ideally located if you want to visit the city of Nice with your family. It provides easy access to Place Masséna and Vieux Nice, two of the city's most famous spots.

Phoenix Park, in the west of the city

Just 15 minutes away from the Hotel Locarno by tram, Phoenix Park is a green oasis right at the heart of the capital of the French Riviera. 7 hectares of green spaces, a tropical greenhouse, animals, play areas and activities for children – all this and more is on offer at Phoenix Park!

Make the most of a breath of fresh air less than 5 km from Nice city centre with easy access by public transport. Take a relaxing break and see fauna and flora you have probably never experienced before. This is a day out to delight all ages!

After this spot of sightseeing, you still have time to visit Nice with your family. You can go to the region's zoos, including Marineland in Antibes or the Oceanographic Museum in Monaco, for some real family-friendly activities!
