It is easy to see why this artist was inspired to paint the Mediterranean Sea lapping along the Bay of Angels that stretches parallel to Quai des Etats-Unis. The promenade was named to honor the U.S. assistance to the Allied Forces during WWI. In the background along the cliff is Parc du Chateau, a hillside park. And protecting the town’s port is the 625 foot forested Mont Boron. The elevation offers wonderful panoramic views of Nice.
