Nice France and The French Riviera

To begin your trip to the French Riviera, you need to fly into Nice France. It is a great place to make your home base and has so many wonderful sites.

Nice’s popularity stems from the fact it has everything: ┬áIt is on the Mediterranean Sea, in the heart of the French Riviera Provence, and at the foot of the French Alps. Terra Amata, Nice’s ancient archaeological site, was originally a prehistoric beach and contained tools of the lower Paleolithic period, dating to about 400,000 BC as well as traces of some of the earliest domestication of fire in Europe.

Sites to see are the beautiful old town and colorful houses on the shore and include:

The Russian Orthodox Cathedral with it’s famous onion domes.
