The old town of Nice

Nice is famous for it's Promenade des Anglais, but this was only built in the second half of the 19th century. Then the hotels were also built, making Nice a famous place for wealthy people to visit during the wintermonths.

But how beautiful the sea and the promenade are, Nice also has a great old Medieval town, sitting at the foot of the citadel with steep streets and meandering allys.

The colourful houses make it look like Italy, but of course Italy is not far away!

This old town has some spots that are really touristy, but as usual, once you turn the smaller streets and walk a bit further, you find hardly any tourists and you can enjoy the old town of Nice.

    1. It is very beautiful to walk around towns and cities like these, even for somebody who is from Europe! (but The Netherlands does not look like this, so for me it is also foreign and exotic)

      Kind regards,
