A big favorite with locals and visitors alike, attracting roller-bladers, cyclists and dog owners, Promenade des Anglais hugs the seashore for several kilometers. The promenade's characteristic blue chairs, scattered along the way, provide the perfect vantage point from which to take in the expanse of azure blue stretching as far as the eye can see. It took its current form in 1822, when Lewis Way, an Englishman who lived in Nice during the winter months, financed the two-meter wide path. It is free of charge to stroll, bask in the sun, and enjoy the pleasures of Nice's beaches.
