The Beatles Once Roamed the Halls of This Century-Old, Belle Époque French Hotel

With its striking rose-colored cupola and dazzling white Belle Époque façade, Le Negresco stands out like a beacon on the wide, beachfront Promenade des Anglais of Nice. Tall and proud, clasped between the sweeping Baie des Anges (Bay of Angels) in front and Mont Boron behind, this classic, century-old property occupies one of the most scenic locations on the French Riviera.

Even today, sipping on 1930s-style cocktails surrounded by sumptuous period furnishings, you sense the shadow of their presence.
