  1. Castle Hill

Climb to the top of Castle Hill for incredible 360 degree views of the city. Soak up the stunning views from Bellanda Tower of the Promenade des Anglais and Vieux-Nice then head to the other side of the hill for jaw-dropping views of Nice Port.

We should mention that the best time to take photos is between late March and early April when the cherry blossom trees bloom and the temperature starts to rise.

  1. Place Masséna

Iconic Place Masséna is a favourite among tourists to take selfies in Nice. It's famous for its checkerboard ground, sun fountain and illuminated statues with snaps taken of it every day in every way.

  1. Promenade des Anglais

Promenade des Anglais, just a 5 minute walk from the Best Western Plus Hotel Brice Garden Nice, is one of the world's most famous promenades. Immortalise its iconic sights during your stay in Nice: the blue chairs, street artists, the legendary Negresco, Nice pebbles and the Mediterannean Sea in the background.

The best time for breath-taking snaps is at dawn when the sun rises or at the end of the day as the sun sets.
