Promenade des Anglais is an iconic promenade along the azure waters of the Baie des Anges. That wealthy Englishmen who favored Nice for balmy vacations paid to have it built in 1824 explains the name. Lined with hotels and cafes on one side and a pebbly beach on the other, the pedestrian way is popular with walkers, rollerbladers, cyclists, runners, skateboarders. Last century it was extended to run between the airport and the port, a distance of some seven kilometers (4 miles).
