Hello, nice

The Greeks and Romans did it, as did rich lords, film stars, artists, and thousands of tourists. They were just going to pass by but instead remained in Nice and along the Riviera. Some for just a few weeks, others for months and years. They were too captivated by the light, enchanted by the scents, and charmed by the taste of olives, wine, and succulent vegetables. In addition to this, a Nice Nouveau has evolved – a sassy Mediterranean metropolis with pulsating nightlife, new avant-garde hotels, and daring art galleries. All this with a chance to dabble their toes in a turquoise sea!

Russian Orthodox Cathedral

In the days of the tsars, the people who enjoyed themselves in the Riviera’s casinos until late on Saturday night, were not exactly short of money. They went here, to church though, on Sundays. After the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe, things are much as they were in the old days, but thick wads of dollars now rain down on the Riviera - and the beautifully restored cathedral. Strict dress code.

Nice Cathedral

The cathedral is a masterpiece of Baroque architecture. Admire the beautiful ornamentation and friezes in the refreshing cool of the cathedral. On the outside, the shimmering colours on the dome have become one of Nice’s landmarks.

Oceanographic Museum

It was Albert I who founded the museum in 1910 and today its collections of marine fauna are priceless and unique. In the well-known “Aquarium” you will find about 90 pools with the rarest species of fish in wonderful shapes and colours.It could also be worth coming here to gaze at the building where the museum is housed.
