The older and grander Hotels of the Promenade des Anglais were built at the turn of the century. In most people's eyes, the grandest, with its Empire and Napoleon decor, is the Negresco. Henri Negresco, a Hungarian immigrant, built the building, which is now a national monument, in 1912. Before he started the Hotel, Henri was director of the City Casino's Restaurant - we're talking guests who were the richest people in the world, the Rockefellers and the Singers. He wanted his Hotel to be a haunts lieu as well and had it designed to attract the very top of the upper crust. As bad luck would have it, World War I reared its ugly head, and the hotel became a hospital. Negresco died shortly after the war, a ruined man. Once the Americans arrived during the roaring twenties business soon picked up. Especially once Gerald and Sara Murphy and their entourage of writers and celebrities had discovered the pleasures of summer on the Riviera. There are many more pleasures to be discovered on and around Promenade des Anglais. On the Avenue des Baumettes, there is the Museum des Beaux-Arts Jules. And, in a little park on Rue de France just off the promenade, there is the Museum Massena named after a local boy who was made a Napoleonic general. Weary? Take a short walk back to the Beach and enjoy the View across the bay to the Cap d' Antibes and the fortified Port Vauban, which was built to defend Antibes, and France, from the NiÃ§ois.
