Nice – who doesn't know this city
name?! I guess it is known internationally and over the continents. It is a synonym
to luxury vacations, rich people strolling in their white gowns with white
hats, yachts gently rocking not far from the shore, expensive cars “surfing”
the streets casually, glamorous parties…. Or is it just me who think these clichés
If you have the same image of
Nice in your head – I should disappoint you. Don’t get me wrong – it is a very
nice city with beautiful architecture, spectacular beaches with and deep-blue
water. But I saw no screaming luxury there. I think Miami has a more promising
people watching scene!
Nevertheless, I really enjoyed
visiting this place. From the Castle Hill you can enjoy an eagle eye view of
the entire city. The old town or Vieille
is a nice compact old center with many beautiful buildings, small
shops, and boutiques. It feels a bit like a medieval village with narrow
streets curving between the houses and appealing restaurants.
Although my visit to Nice was for
one day only, I still managed to taste the atmosphere and tried to render it in
my photo reportage. Nice – I will be back!
