Nice = nice

During my holiday in the French Rivera (Cote d'Azur) last yeau, i went 1 day to Nice.
Nice is the biggest city in the region (approx. 340.000 inhabitants/ 1.000.000 metropolitan area). Of course we couldn't visit the whole city, but i liked the places i saw. Here they come :

1. We parked our car near the Central Station and have this view over the suburbs.




2.




3. A Church on the Avenue Jean Medicien.




4. The Place Massena.




5.




6. The Opera House.




7.




8. Vieux Nice (Old Nice) : cosy squares and small streets with a very high Italian feeling.




9. The Court House.




10.




11.




12.




13.




14.




15.




16. We walked to a hill, where you have a view over the city.




17.




18. The Mediterean see.




19. As most cities, also Nice has quite ugly spots.




20.




21.




22. Vieux Nice from above.




23.




24.




25.




26. On the other side of the hill you have the Vieux port (Old harbour).




27.




28.




29.




30.




31. Place Garibaldi.




32.




33.




34.




35.




36. Back in the city center.




37. Hotel on the Promenade d'Anglais.




38. The Promenade d'Anglais.




39. A shoppingstreet near the beach.




40.




41. Back to the start : the Central Station.




42. And the last one : towerblocks in (i think) Nice-St-Augustin.

Typically the kind of southern city than any englishman crave! and you know the reason of course.

Nice pictures but there is so much more than that to it! you perhaps did not have the time to see all of it. Specially the suburban areas (villefranche and so on...). Also the jewish-russian orthodox heritage of the city.

Arguably the jewel of the Riviera.

Thanks for teh replies.

@Desi1
We visited Nice 1 day, and yes, that's a bit short. But with so many fine things to do in the Cote d'Azur we must made choices. Maybe i visit Villefranche next time.
