Hi everyone,

I just returned from my trip to Nice, France and now I can definitely say that it is one of my favorite places. The Nice old town is one of the best places to visit in the city. With its cobblestone walking streets and old buildings. There are a lot of really great places to explore on foot, but you can drive to other famous places in the city like the Monument Aux Morts or the Russian Orthodox Cathedral.
I will always remember my trip to Nice and maybe someday I will visit Nice again.

Has anyone been in Nice? What are you impressions of the city??

I have been to Nice twice, once as a young person and once as an oldster.
I think I liked it more when I was younger, but both times I visited and very much enjoyed the Chagall Museum, and the Promenade des Anglais was another favorite.
A lot of people diss Nice (and the Riviera in general) as being touristy and crowded, but the city has charm, history and a gorgeous climate.

I’ve also been to Nice twice —once as a teenager and once much later. I think it’s a very friendly place when compared to other major tourist destinations and big cities in Western Europe. It’s also easy to get to Provence and get around the Riviera from there. There are great art museums in the area if you take the time to find them. The increased likelihood of finding good weather is another plus.

I totally agree with you. I don’t know why anyone should diss Nice for the tourist crowds. When I was there I didn’t see so many tourists, but maybe I didn’t notice them because I was blown away from the architecture and the emotional atmosphere.
