You have no doubt heard of the Casino Jetée-Promenade in the city of Nice. He was one of the main actors of the Riviera splendor. Built in 1882, this building was a place for walking, conviviality, games and entertainment. Its image was disseminated throughout Europe and has made it possible to increase the tourism sector exponentially. Between 1891 and 1914 it was “the belle epoque”, we can speak of “Nissa la bella”!

Built almost 60 meters from the coast, the building survived the First World War and quickly resumed its activities. Unfortunately during the Second World War, occupied by the Germans, the structure was dismantled. Upon release, a prefectural decree forced the owners to abandon the reconstruction of the Casino. It’s the end of an era, of course, but the Pier-Promenade will remain one of the elements that made Nice what it is today.
