A favorite spot for locals and visitors alike, this wonderful promenade, in the heart of town, hugs the seashore and its beaches for several kilometers. To one side there's the Mediterranean, the Lerins Islands off the coast, and the Esterel mountain range. On the other, there are palm trees, elegant belle epoque hotels and fashionable boutiques. It is an ideal place to people-watch, especially during the Film Festival. The place was created during the 19th Century,
