Stroll under the palm trees along the beachside Promenade des Anglais. Sip a cocktail at the bar in the InterContinental Carlton hotel, and remember “To Catch a Thief”. This is Nice after all.
Then ask your guide about history. She will tell you Greek settlers founded the town around 350 BC and named it after Nike, the goddess of victory. She will take you to an antique market, and tell you meanwhile of Nice’s alliances with Italy and France, and its centuries of history.
You will enjoy the iconic charm of Nice and also discover what most visitors don’t see.
