One of the largest embankments in Nice located on the Cote d'Azur.
Walking along the embankment you can see the famous ancient buildings, sit on a bench in a hot day and enjoy the view on the "bay of angels". The legend says that it was the same shore that the angels pointed to Adam and Eve, after the exile, as most similar to Eden.

The embankment has been the main artery of the city for many years. Now it is used for various festivals, carnivals and flower exhibitions. On big holidays the embankment turns into a "garden blossoming with lights" for walks of local and travelers.
