Promenade des Anglais

The iconic Promenade des Anglais is a real jewel in Nice, known across the world. The people of Nice and holidaymakers use it for a walk, exercise or a simple moment of escape, looking out to sea.

Seven kilometres long, the Promenade des Anglais runs along the Baie des Anges and its pebble beaches. Built in 1820 at the initiative of the Englishman, Reverend Lewis Way, it starts between Parc Phoenix and Nice Côte d'Azur Airport, extending to the Quai des Etats Unis, at the foot of the Colline du Château [Castle Hill]. It is an essential thoroughfare for visitors, but also for the locals who love to meet there. On rollerblades, by bike, walking or running, alone or accompanied, any reason is good to go there to admire the sea as far as the eye can see and its dazzling sunrises. On the way, you run into the most beautiful luxury hotels, such as the Palais de la Méditerranée, the Hôtel West End as well as the legendary Hôtel Negresco, together with cultural buildings: the CUM (Mediterranean University Centre) and the Musée Masséna. Also along the way is a succession of works of art, pergolas and blue chairs, which have become a real symbol of the city of Nice.
