Back in the middle of the 19th century, Nice acquired the status of a fashionable resort; aristocrats and emperors eagerly came there. Since then, its reputation has not changed: this city still amazes with its splendor, architecture, and prices. Experienced personal guides who conduct excursions in English usually pay special attention to the monuments of "English Nice": the St. Nicholas Church built in 1912, the cemetery, a monument to Tsecarevich Nikolay Alexandrovich. Among other must-see sights are as follows:
- famous Negresco hotel;
- English embankment;
- Old town (it is better to go on a sightseeing excursion with a guide who will tell you about all the interesting buildings);
- Place Massena and Garibaldi;
- museums of Matisse and Chagall;
- port with luxury yachts.
For lovers of ancient architecture, excursions to the Mont Alban Fort are also recommended. 1001guide reminds you that it also offers wonderful views of the Cimiez monastery; classical music fans should definitely visit the magnificent Opera theatre.
