Start your adventure from Cannes with a scenic drive as you head to Nice. Enter the city driving along the Promenade des Anglais, a splendid palm-lined boulevard stretching three miles along the Baie des Anges. You'll pass landmarks such as the legendary Negresco, an imposing hotel with a Rococo façade and, the Russian Orthodox Cathedral, built with pink bricks, light gray marble and vividly colored ceramics that gives an exotic touch to the Nice scene. Then arrive in Old Nice as you visit the old city where tall houses, bright with flowers or washing, exclude the glare of sun and keep the streets cool. Here you'll enjoy your walk on Cours Saleya, the elegant promenade of Old Nice, lined with shops and restaurants and with the famous flower market, held here in picturesque quarters. Your drive continues passing Regina Hotel to Cimiez Hill, a sophisticated part of Nice with many large villas. Pass the Franciscan Monastery, gardens and Roman arenas, before joining the highway back to Cannes.
Note: There is approximately 1 mile of walking on relatively flat terrain.

Spent most of the time touring around Nice on a bus with the tour guide pointing out points of interest. We had about 30 minutes of free time around at the market. Overall if you want a relaxing day, this is it. Spent the afternoon walking around Cannes checking out the sights here and doing some shopping. Was a little annoyed with the tour guide as it was an English speaking tour, but half the bus was people from Quebec and got the tour guide to speak more French than English. Get a French tour.
For a nice relaxing tour, this was a great choice. Cannes is a beautiful town with lovely flowers and scenery. Our guide was very informative and touched on many interesting details. Our lunch at a quaint cafe was delicious and everyone was very friendly. The flower market is lovely.
