One of the largest embankments in Nice located on the Cote d'Azur.
How to walk along the Promenade des Anglais in Nice
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.

#1Promenade des Anglais in NicePromenade des Anglais

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.

When to do?

Any sunny day is perfect for a walk, but in the evening when the embankment is flooded with the lights of the city and street musicians and artists appear here, it turns into an impassioned place, especially pleasant for walks.
