The Walkway of the English

Warm evening sunlight highlights the beachfront buildings of Nice and the Promenade des Anglais

 

Nice came to the attention of the English upper classes in the second half of the 18th century, when an increasing number of aristocratic families took to spending their winter there. The city’s main seaside promenade, the Promenade des Anglais (‘the Walkway of the English’) owes its name to the earliest visitors to the resort.
