Unusual Attraction in Nice

One of the main draws of a tourist city is its proximity to water. Most coastal tourist areas maintain their beaches by dredging sand from the coastline to reduce the effects of erosion. The waterfront beach in Nice does not have that issue as its coastline is unique compared to other beach cities. It is not a sandy and luxurious coast, but instead rather rocky. The rocks have been smoothed by the seas for many years so that they look more like river rocks. It may be uncomfortable to lie upon the beaches of Nice, but it can be quite interesting to look for interesting stones.

Two Facets of the City

One of the most unique things about Nice is its continual maintenance of the past and the illustrious history of the city along with its ability to embrace the future. This is something that visitors notice quite quickly within the city as they stroll along the streets enjoying the rich history. Ancient structures and buildings are celebrated, but also placed right alongside the new structures, giving the people and visitors of Nice a unique respect for the old as well as the new.

Transportation

As in all cities throughout France and Europe, foot traffic and bikes are very common. The city can be a bit on the crowded side at various parts of the day, and it is usually best to take either the bus or one of the trains. There are many bus routes throughout Nice, and it costs four Euros for a full day pass. This includes both bus travel as well as traveling by train. Bus schedules can be a little tricky to keep track of, but the train system runs like clockwork with trains coming in every 30 minutes. The main hub for transit is the Gare de Nice Ville. It takes approximately 20 minutes to walk from the beach to the train station at this location, but it will enable you to get anywhere within Nice that you want to go.
