From a humble 2-metre-wide footpath in the 19th century, the Promenade des Anglais has become a real emblem of the city of Nice and one of its major sights. On foot, by bike or on roller-skates, the "Prom'" runs along the Mediterranean and its many pebble beaches, to the south, and past luxury hotels with their Belle Epoque or Art-Déco façades to the north. In the shade of the pergolas, the Promenade des Anglais is an invitation to relax and take it easy in Mediterranean style, on the famous blue chairs facing the sea and the Baie des Anges.
