Description of Area in & around Nice
Nice, South of France
With a very mild and temperate climate, generous sunshine and large green spaces, Nice could easily be thought of as Miami. Every sight reminds you of American beaches; the palm trees, its glorious ocean-front; even the amateur roller-bladers could easily convince you that you have not left American soil.
As was said by the famous sculptor César: "Nice is like a woman city. We love her passionately, we may leave her, but we always remain faithful..." It is actually difficult once you have visited Nice to be satisfied and never return. This city makes a mark, leaving you with a thousand thoughts and emotions in the bottom of your heart. Its feet in the ocean and its head in the clouds, Nice and its region are in themselves a small country with Provencal traditions. Land of lights open between two palm trees to the brilliant sea, the one we call "little Florida" remains unique.
The Prettiest Market in France
In all the cities of Provence you will find neighborhoods full of life and activities. Nice is no exception to this rule. In the old quarter of the city, on the edge of the ocean, is a large esplanade offering a thousand sights and smells from the South of France: The Saleya Court. Every morning, each in turn, the flower market, fruit and vegetable market, or antique market is held; this magical place where musicians, sculptors and painters offer a wonderful open air show to the enchantment of the passersby. Every evening, illuminated by the lights of restaurants, pubs and bistros, it is the meeting point for young and old who begin their nights with stop at the terrace of a café. The world never seems to stop in one of the most beautiful and well-known pedestrian zones.
Land of history, land of escape, Nice is also known since the middle Ages as a land of feasts. It all began on a cursed Wednesday when the moon was closest to the earth. A crackpot was strolling through the village all night long, playing his rattle and claiming in his loud voice: "This day is Holy; the moon is your gateway to the ever-after!" The villagers activated their bellows full of flour to make him leave.
A legend was born, which became a popular tradition. From aristocrats, to local folk and even religious men, all would amuse themselves, hidden behind masks, mocking one and all, until "Mardi Gras", day according to the Catholic tradition of Lent, when one would begin fasting for 40 days. The carnival we now enjoy today had its origin in February 1873, when king Carnival the First made a triumphant entrance into the city. Every year since, Nice moves to the rhythms of the drums and the cries of joy that spill forth as the parade of floats file past. Be it during the excitement of the flower fight, or the parade of large heads, the universe of the grotesque and absurd mix in with that of joy and happiness!
Noon on the Dot
Do not be alarmed if, at the end of the morning, while wandering the streets of the Old City, you hear a far away explosion. It is the canon of Sir Thomas Coventry. In 1860, this old colonel of the British army complained to his spouse, an absent-minded chatterbox that they were never able to sit down to dinner at the proper hour. The English gentlemen therefore asked the municipality to fire a cannonball everyday at noon, to remind her that lunch was to be served. He committed to supplying all the ammunition and the canon. It was therefore installed in the castle, at 92 meters in height, so that it could be heard by all the citizens of the city. This custom survived and to this day one can hear the sound of the canon at twelve sharp indicating that it is time to sit and eat…
