What would Nice be without the Promenade des Anglais? “Nice 2015. Promenade(s) des Anglais” is the cultural event of the summer. Make a date at 13 venues in Nice.


More than 1500 paintings, sculptures, photos, engravings and archived documents are being presented to the public, thanks to loans from institutions and private individuals.


The programme of these exhibitions obviously covers several fields: history of course (Cimiez archaeological museum, Palais Lascaris…), architecture and urbanism (Musée Masséna), painting (Musée Matisse, Musée Chagall…) but also fine arts (Musée d’art naïf, Mamac, Villa Arson…) and natural history (Galerie des Ponchettes).

Jean-Jacques Aillagon, the general commissioner, has been working for several months with various experts – specialists in heritage, sociologists, art historians, French and foreign academics – to enrich the Unesco application. And thus offer all the residents of Nice and the summer visitors a fresh look at this Promenade which still arouses this sort of dream, joie de vivre and curiosity.

This heritage has become “a myth, inspiring the talent of many writers, painters, cinematographers and musicians who all contribute to the testimony of Nice’s worldwide reputation. Throughout the course of your visits to this Promenade, you will doubtlessly come across Matisse, Raul Dufy and Picasso but also the artist couple Gisèle and Paul Tissier, creators and organisers of the famous “Fêtes d’art”, high society parties in fashion at the Hôtel Ruhl, the shining star of the luxury hotels in Nice (exhibition at Palais Lascaris).

A promenade which continues to inspire many artists and cinematographers. The film created by Marie Losier and Catherine Libert, presented at the Villa Arson, is one of the many examples. And what a success.
