Travel Blog Part 7 - Nice

Written on: Sunday February 18th, 2007

A journal entry from: EURO5

Dunno why the rest of the guys didn't like Nice. This place seemed to have a real home-town down to earth feel to me. And it was pretty cool to see how much the city was influenced by its Russian past. I guess some of the upper class Russians back in the 19th century used to use Nice as a getaway from the cold, so there are a whole bunch of the onion-dome type churches all over the place. It still has that distincly French feel however - a very typical riviera stop. I highly encourage any prospective visitors to climb the trail on the east of the city near the beach, up a cliff for a great view of the entire city.
