Nice - Promenade des Anglais

It was only in 1860 that Nice ceased to belong to the kingdom of Sardinia. In the 18th century some English people acquired detached houses in this town. Years later they proposed the opening of a promenade in the Bay of Angels. The annual Carnival procession takes place in the “prom”. In summer anyone can sit in its blue chairs.

Nice só em 1860 deixou de pertencer ao reino da Sardenha. No séc. XVIII alguns Ingleses adquiriram moradias na cidade. Anos depois propuseram a abertura duma zona de passeio na Baía dos Anjos. Na 'prom' desfila anualmente o cortejo carnavalesco. No Verão qualquer um pode sentar-se nas suas cadeiras azuis.
