Nice is Proud of its New Promenade

Posted on Tuesday, 12 November 2013
After beating Paris to be France's first city to have electric short term rental cars throughout the city and with its superb public transport system easing traffic congestion for several years, the Riviera capital, Nice, has just unveiled La Promenade du Paillon, a 12 hectare green belt running through the heart of the city's centre.

The long park runs from the MAMAC, Nice's excellent contemporary art museum right to the seafront and the city's more traditional thoroughfare, the Promenade des Anglais. With plenty of seating, exquisite fountains, and 1km of grassy space (a rarity on the sun-drenched Riviera), the Prom' du Paillon follows the path of the Paillon river, which was once a feature of the seaside resort. Today, the modern tramway runs alongside the new park which is overlooked on one side by the grand Avenue Felix Faure, and on the other by the charming, colourful façades of the quaint Old Town.

The 'Coulée Verte', as it was once known, was officially inaugurated in October 2013 to a unanimously impressed Niçois community. Nice has always been a popular holiday destination, but in the past decade it just seems to get better and better...
