The Promenade des Anglais

2 minutes from the hotel

The symbol of the city, the Promenade des Anglais, a stone’s throw from the hotel, is easily one of the most beautiful coastal promenades in the world. Hugging the edge of the Baie des Anges, it takes its name from English aristocrats who spent winter here, particularly Reverend Lewis Way who had the first works carried out around 1820. It expanded bit by bit throughout the 19th century, and it was only in 1903 that it reached its current layout. In 1931, it was officially inaugurated by the Duke of Connaught, son of Queen Victoria.
 

Benefiting from an outstanding natural surroundings and lined with palms and pergolas designed to take in the sea setting, the “Prom,” as it is often known, is a special place for walking in Nice. It is very popular with runners and roller-skaters, and also has a wide cycling lane.

The Promenade des Anglais offers more than just a casual stroll: it also offers the change to discover some of the city’s important monuments. Less than 100 m from the hotel, discover the fantastic Albert I Garden and the Centenary Monument commemorating the County of Nice’s admission to France. Taking the Promenade towards the west, you can admire the Palais de la Méditerranée with its listed façade. A few metres away, next to the Villa Masséna, stands the Hotel Negresco, another listed site. Built in 1912 in the Belle Époque style, it is noted for its grandeur and neo-baroque style.
