The city of Nice put out the Promenade des Anglais in 2015 as a possible candidate for the UNESCO World Heritage classification; getting this designation can take up to ten years to complete. 

It is seven kilometers long and provides an uninterrupted view of the aquamarine lake and palm trees. 


Think about the reason the promenade was constructed in the first place: 

The city of Nice got its name from the wealthy English aristocracy that settled there in the 18th century to take advantage of the pleasant climate. 

A coastal promenade was built at the time because the beach was unruly, and the lords and their women desired to stroll comfortably. This led to the construction of the promenade (with the hands and finances of the English people).  

There is still evidence of the islanders' influence on this place, which may be seen in the English names of the hotels, such as Westminster and West End. 

The promenade of today is a popular spot for a variety of activities, including brisk walks and sporting events:

A bike lane runs the length of it, and you can also see people running, rollerblading, or participating in other types of sports from time to time. 

The Promenade des Anglais plays hosts a plethora of events and activities regularly, including competitions of various sports, exhibitions, and gatherings, as well as a component of the world-famous Nice Carnival. There are opulent hotels, luxurious casinos, opulent hotels, fashionable beaches, and fashionable museums. 

The Le Negresco hotel, where Michael Jackson stayed in the past, is the most expensive places to visit. 

Discover the surrounding area by walking along the Promenade des Anglais, which provides access to both Castle Hill and the Old Town of Nice:

You will arrive at the Museum of Fine Arts in Nice if you travel in the opposite direction, and on the way there, you will pass the Massena Museum, which is housed in a breathtaking mansion and features a stunning garden.
