The city is called Nice la Belle (Nissa La Bella in Niçard), which means Nice the Beautiful, which is also the title of the unofficial anthem of Nice, written by Menica Rondelly in 1912.
The natural beauty of the Nice area and its mild Mediterranean climate came to the attention of the English upper classes in the second half of the 18th century, when an increasing number of aristocratic families took to spending their winter there. And I got the impression that as well as Monaco, St. Tropez and Cannes this was the rich kid’s playground. If you do not like the posh lifestyle, you will probably find yourself in some strange situations in this coastline. It is absolutely worth a visit, if not to decide that it was not for you.
We rented a car to travel along the entire coastline, and the scenary was a typical blend of French and Italian. I will absolutely recommend that trip.
