Carnaval de Nice; February: For two weeks, the Promenade des Anglais morphs into one long, fun-filled fiesta of flowers, floats and costumed musicians and dancers. Eventually, everyone arrives at Place Masséna and parties extend into the night.
Nice Semi-Marathon; April: This half-marathon’s route incorporates Promenade des Anglais, having passed the public gardens of Le Jardin Albert 1er and the marina.
Nice Jazz Festival; July: All pergolas and pomegranate groves, the gardens around the Monastère de Cimiez are lovely enough as it is. They become lovelier still when accompanied by the Jazz Festival’s melodious concerts.
