About Nice

Located on the south east coast of France, Nice constitutes the meeting point between the Alps and the Mediterranean Sea. Nice is a city of opposites: both traditional and modern, a city of culture and business, Nice tries to capitalize on all sides. Sometimes presented as Italian, sometimes as provincial, Nice is blessed by its location and its picturesque palaces and alleyways.

Just a quick detour in France for the end of the trip in order to see the famous city of Nice, experience its nightlife and enjoy a swim in the mediterranean sea after a while away from it! Nice is a very charming City, as usual in France, with gorgeous architecture and a nice seafront. Maybe it was just me but there's a lot of elder people in Nice and I couldn't manage but feel that it was the French retiring place.... However I enjoyed a full day wandering around in the streets and resting on the Beach after my crazy trip. It felt very good! Hotels are expensive, so I decided to sleep on the Beach at night and was awakened the next morning by a boat cleaning the Beaches with a water jet that almost killed me ! :)
