This promenade is one block off the front street. There are a bunch of statues (there the ones on the poles), a really large (and flat) fountain and a bunch of restaurants on the other end. A pleasant place for a walk and to spend some down time.

From les Baux de Provence website:

The museum of "santons" (figures for the Christmas crib) contains a vast number of exhibits including some outstanding figurines made in Naples, scenes illustrating the traditions of Provence and Les Baux linked to the Nativity and a documentary film on the manufacture of these figures.

From Nice-Tourism.com:

The Castle Park (Parc du Chateau), also referred to as the Castle Hill (Colline du Chateau) by force of the fact it is the highest altitude in Vieux Nice (92 meters above the sea level), is the place where the ruins of the former Chateau de Nice can be spotted. It is deemed one of the top tourist attractions in Nice, an objective not to be missed out by the visitors of the French Riviera. More...

From Wikipedia:

Although already inhabited in the Bronze Age, Les Baux-de-Provence did not really start growing until the medieval period. Built in the 10th century, the fortress and the small town it protects were ruled by the lords of Baux for five hundred years, More...

We stopped by the restaurant to admire the pizza making process. Arnaud told us how delicious it was. He was right! We met up with the delivery person a short time later on the Promenade Des Anglais (the last picture is their delivery vehicle).

This was the final dinner of our tour. We all shared good stories about the trip and then good byes at the end. Unfortunately, the service was SO poor that it tarnished the gathering. Arnaud was frustrated because there aren't many places in Nice (at least in the area where we stayed) that can handle a group of our size. Anyway, we enjoyed ourselves as we closed out the trip.

This was a VERY interesting hotel. The location is outstanding, The accomodations are just unusual. The room is no more then 8 feet wide. The bed is over the bathroom. Now you can't stand up next to the bed, and I recommend you're REALLY careful if to need to visit the loo during the night. BTW the breakfast was good. Unusual, but not really less then what we needed.
