Monday’s Postcard: Nice, France

Posted on 18. Jul, 2011 by in Destinations, Europe Travel, France, Photo Posts

Nice is believed to be the oldest human settlement in all of Europe, back when the city was called Nikaia (Goddess of Victory). You can’t say that I’ve never taught you anything, eh!

Very popular with the English bourgeoisie in the 18th century (as per the lavish houses we can see today),  Nice has always been a strikingly inspiring place and therefore it doesn’t come as a surprise that there are over 20 museums in the city, creating famous painters like Matisse and Chagal. Another epicurean pleasure of Nice is its famous salade niçoise - lettuce, hard-boiled eggs, tuna, anchovies, tomatoes and olives. Bon appétit!
