English Embankment – one of the most remarkable places in Nice. The embankment was founded in 1820 by the Englishman Lewis Vey at his own expense as a sign of enthusiastic reverence for the English Queen Victoria, who visited this city. The embankment stretches from the old city center to the modern airport. Initially, the embankment was only two meters wide. Today, in addition to the sidewalk and beautiful flower beds, the embankment also includes two four-lane freeways.
The embankment, framed by luxury hotels, restaurants and galleries, separates the city blocks from the beach. The most famous building of the embankment – the hotel Negresco, built at the beginning of the 20th century.
Many celebrities vacationing in Nice, consider it an honor to stroll along the embankment. We can say that the Promenade des Anglais has become one of the symbols of the Cote d'Azur.
In the evening, the embankment presents a truly impressive spectacle: the lighting reflected in the waves of the sea is combined with the multi-colored illumination of buildings.
