Locals call it the Promenade for the luxury of the buildings located on it. It is the favorite place for walks of natives and tourists.
Promenade des Anglais - starts from the bridge of Emperor Napoleon III and ends at Nice airport. All six kilometers of the Promenade have been planted with palm trees since 1920 by the order of the mayor of the city.

The embankment is an ideal place to take a walk and relax, there are a lot of blue armchairs and numerous white branches to have a rest. Beaches are strewn with sun loungers, where you can take sunbathing, and pavilions where you can hide in bad weather or from the scorching sun in a sultry day.
