Nice, Promenade des Anglais

Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful streets on the French Riviera

The Promenade des Anglais

Did you know that it was not until the early nineteenth century that  the Promenade des Anglais was born? Indeed, it was in the 1820s that the English community of Nice, under the leadership of British Reverend Lewis Lay, financed the work of a boardwalk along the coast of Nice. First "Camin deï Angles" Chemin des Anglais, it would be called Promenade in 1854. In 1930, after various phases of work, the boardwalk takes its present aspect, mixed palaces such as the Palace of the Mediterranean, Negresco, aristocratic villas such as the Massena Palace, now the seat of the Massena Museum and the Palace of Agriculture that was recently restored and residential luxury buildings, most built between the 1950s and the 1990s.

The triumphal boardwalk Promenade des Anglais was successively extended to reach the airport. With a length of 7 km, it is lined with public and private beaches that offer the opportunity to relax while enjoying a dreamy panorama. The color of the seawater is also particularly beautiful and luminous. The Promenade des Anglais offers a world-class bike ride along the Baie des Anges. Bike paths and walkways dotted with gazebos, pergolas and palm trees contribute to its legendary charm. Many joggers, rollerbladers and skate-boarders travel up and down day and night.

As the Quai des Etats Unis that follows after the Promenade towards the point Rauba Capeu at the entrance of the port of Nice and at the foot of the castle hill, owes its name to the entry into the war by the United States in 1917 alongside the allied countries, the municipality wanted to give a proper welcome. A few hundred meters after, you will find the rue Saint Francios de Paule and the Cours Saleya, present with stunning Nicois style buildings, not to mention the majestic Opera of Nice, built by the architect François Aune from 1882 to 1885 under the supervision of Charles Garnier.
