The Beautiful Beaches in Nice, France

The charm and beauty of this place is still very fresh and always playing in my mind. Nice, a city in France is truly nice and beautiful. I love especially its white sandy beach, its historical settings and simply the place. I never regret my trip to this part of France. It was truly a memorable and stunning vacation!

Just simply look at the images I took below and you will see how beautiful this place is. No wonder it is nicknamed as Nice la Belle (Nissa La Bella in Niçard), which means Nice the Beautiful.

The area of today’s Nice is believed to be among the oldest human settlements in Europe. One of the archaeological sites, Terra Amata, displays evidence of a very early usage of fire. Around 350 BCE, Greeks of Marseille founded a permanent settlement and called it Nikaia, after Nike, the goddess of victory. wikipedia.

Beautiful beach of Nice! Is is summer there during your visit?

I didn't know that Nike comes from the goddess of victory, still from Greek? Nice.
