Nice is the French Riviera’s largest city, one of the best tourist destinations either for holidays or for a short intermediate stay in order to take a ferry to approach another Mediterranean port. During the second half of the 18th century the natural environment and the mild climate of the area made the aristocratic families of England spend the winters in the area and in 1860 the city/s main seaside promenade of 7 km named “ Promenade des Anglais” (Walkway of the English). Impressionist painters and International writers were inspired by the winter resort of the Riviera. Today, Nice is an attractive vacation destination, a lively cosmopolitan city with a picturesque Old Town with cobblestone streets and alleys. The cultural center Place Massena, the city’s largest square, the museums, the Cathedrals, the Palaces and the open air markets, have given Nice a uniqueness that everyone should know even for once in their life.
