Nice, France, is situated at the foot of the Alps Mountains in French Riviera. It is renown as “Nice la Belle” meaning Nice the beautiful. It has a mild Mediterranean climate; this is the reason why English aristocratic families loved visiting Nice during winters in the late 18th Century. Nice is a blend of old-world opulence, real city grit, and vibrant street life. Painters such as Marc Chagall and Niki de Saint Phalle were inspired by the appealing soft light and clear air in Nice. While the town has a measure of natural beauty because of its prestigious coastal Mediterranean location, one can find even more rustic beauty just an hour north of Nice at Mercantour National Park. Nice is also home to Terra Amata, a site with very early evidence of the use of fire by humankind.
