Its open-air roof terraces offer one of the best panoramas of the city.

If you go past the old port (probably 15 minute walk) heading east toward Monaco, there is a little pathway that leads from Coco Beach along the side of the cliff, the "Sentier Littoral" which you can follow around Cap de Nice half way to Villefranche, but be prepared for several hundred steps up to rejoin the road.
It's a very beautiful walk and you will find mostly local people using

You can park you car on the area (around 15mns walk ) in the area but it's definitely more convenient ( but a little bit pricey ) to car your park in this private car park
Around 2e per hour
What I suggest? park your car, for the first night ( really more comfortable for the luggage's ) and the day after, look for place near by .
Actually I don't ‘recommend to use you car during your stay because during the peak season, it's always a traffic jam & defintly impossible to car your park in eze or St jean cap Ferrat for instance
Everything is within a walking distance or easily reachable by car/buses/trains
