The palm trees of the Promenade des Anglais are admired as inseparable symbols of Nice. Without them, the Promenade would not have the attraction it has on the people of Nice and visitors.

The palm trees of the Promenade

Palmiers de la Promenade des Anglais à Nice

Between the two traffic lanes and along the pedestrian Prom’ (the Promenade des Anglais) are planted many palm trees of different varieties. They were partly victims of the red weevil which decimated the trees. But the municipality managed to protect the trees and planted new ones, and especially new varieties, more resistant.
There are date palms, palms with thin trunks that rise very high towards the sky, stocky palms, palms with multiple trunks, up to 9 or 10 trunks, etc.
