Nice is the fifth most populous city in France, after Paris, Marseille, Lyon and Toulouse, with a population of 348,721 within its administrative limits on a land area of 71.92 km2 (28 sq mi). The urban area of Nice extends beyond the administrative city limits with a population of over 955,000 on an area of 721 km2 (278 sq mi). Located on the south east coast of France on the Mediterranean Sea, Nice is the second largest French city on the Mediterranean coast.
The city is nicknamed Nice la Belle (Nissa La Bella in Niçard), which means Nice the Beautiful – it is also the unofficial anthem of Nice, written by Menica Rondelly in 1912. Nice is the capital city of the Alpes Maritimes department, and the second biggest city of the Region Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur after Marseille.
The area of today’s Nice is believed to be among the oldest human settlements in Europe. One of the archaeological sites, Terra Amata, displays evidence of a very early use of fire. Around 350 BC, Greeks of Marseille founded a permanent settlement and called it Nikaia, after Nike, the goddess of victory.
Throughout the ages the town changed hands many times. Its strategic location and port significantly contributed to its maritime strength. For years, it was an Italian dominion, then became part of France in 1860. Culturally and architecturally enriched over time, today Nice has become a truly cosmopolitan tourist destination. The spectacular natural beauty of the Nice area and its mild Mediterranean climate came to the attention of the English upper classes in the second half of the 18th century, when an increasing number of aristocratic families took to spending their winter there. The city’s main seaside promenade, the Promenade des Anglais (‘the Walkway of the English’) owes its name to the earliest visitors to the resort. For decades now, the picturesque Nicean surroundings have attracted not only those in search of relaxation, but also those seeking inspiration. The clear air and soft light has been of particular appeal to some of Western culture’s most outstanding painters, such as Marc Chagall, Henri Matisse, Niki de Saint Phalle and Arman. Their work is commemorated in many of the city’s museums, including Musée Marc Chagall, Musée Matisse and Musée des Beaux-Arts Jules Chéret. The climate and landscape are still what attracts most visitors today. It has the second largest hotel capacity in the country and it’s the second-most visited place in France after Paris, receiving 4 million tourists every year. It also has the second busiest airport in France after Paris and two convention centres dedicated to business tourism. The city also has a university, several business districts and some major cultural facilities, such as museums, a national theatre, an opera house with a regional library and several concert halls and casinos. It is the historical capital city of the County of Nice (Comté de Nice).
Nice experiences a Mediterranean climate. The summer’s/holiday season lasts for 6 months, from May to October, although also in April and November sometimes there are temperatures above 20 °C (68 °F). Winters are mild, with average temperatures of 13.4 °C(56.1 °F) during the day and 5.8 °C (42.4 °F) at night in the period from December to February.
I’ve spent 5 days in Paris. I wish I could say the things I did per day, but I really don’t remember all the details. We arrived at the hostel and started walking on the street until we found the Père Lachaise Cemitery (http://www.pere-lachaise.com/), where we saw Oscar Wilde’s grave (picture). We tried to search Jim Morrison, Chopin and others, but we didn’t have a map. After that, we decided to see The Bastille, which is close to the Cemitery.
the subway and go back to the hostel. On the same street we ate at a cute place, with jazz music and a marvellous three-cheese macaroni. On the other days we decided to check the museums: Louvre (http://www.louvre.fr/), l’Orangerie (http://www.musee-orangerie.fr/), Maison européenne de la photographie (http://www.mep-fr.org/default.htm), Guimet (http://www.guimet.fr/). The last one we entered for free, on the others we had a discount for beying under 26. But if you have European citizenship, you can enter in everything for free. I wonder why…
At night we also saw the Avenue des Champs-Élysées (http://www.champselysees.org/), Arc de Triomphe (http://arc-de-triomphe.monuments-nationaux.fr/) and the Tower (http://www.tour-eiffel.fr/) again, but at the top. The view is worth it, but I recommend using good coats if you are going on the winter. It’s awfully freezing. We saw the inside of 2 churches: Basilique du Sacré-Coeur (http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sacre-coeur-montmartre.com%2F&h=sAQEu8Km4), where you can not take pictures from the inside, and Notre Dame (www.notredamedeparis.fr), where you can take pictures. The inside is beautiful, especially the stained glass (picture).
I particularly like Montmartre very much. Over there you can see the Moulin Rouge (http://www.moulinrouge.fr/), Fromageries, you can find shops of macarons and places from Amélie Poulain’s movie, as Café des Deux Moulins, Maison Collignon, her carrousel and the view from Sacre Coeur ( http://www.sacre-coeur-montmartre.com/), where Nino appears.
If you are looking for a place to shop, Galeries lafayette (http://www.galerieslafayette.com/) is probably the best choice. If you are searching for a romantic activity, you should go to Pont-Neuf and Pont des Arts to place a lock with your love. Now, if you want something different I assume you should try Les Catacombes, an underground ossuary in Paris.
>> Our hostel: http://www.fuaj.org/Paris-Jules-Ferry I recommend bringing flip flops to shower because the bathroom is collective. I honestly did not like the kitchen because it has no oven, microwave only. And the breakfast should have more cold cuts (Paris has several cheeses, its a shame not to put them at breakfast)
