NICE

capital of the french Riviera

Nice, capital of the Côte d’Azur is now the 5th largest city in France. Born on the Castle Hill and around the port, occupied by the Romans in the district of Cimiez, the city then belongs to the County of Savoy until 1860, when it is attached to France. Its history merges with that of the development of tourism, an activity that has led to its dazzling development. Visit Nice today is to discover a heritage from this history in the heart of an exceptional site, in a southern atmosphere:
· Old Nice, nestled at the foot of the castle hill, with its maze of colourful streets, its many churches and baroque chapels including the Cathedral Sainte Réparate, the church of Gesu, reminiscent of the cities of Liguria.
· The Promenade des Anglais, built along the Bay of Angels and lined with many buildings “Belle Epoque” including the famous Négresco,
· Place Masséna, heart of the famous Carnival and the district of Mont Boron, which offers a superb panoramic view of the whole city.
· The hill of Cimiez particularly rich in monuments
· The Roman arena on the edge of the park, theatre of the Jazz Festival
· The Franciscan monastery which houses a piety of Louis Bréa of 1475, master Nice of great value, and its pleasant rose garden
· The Matisse Museum retracing the painter’s itinerary
· The Marc Chagall National Museum presenting the 17 canvases of the Biblical Message
