What immediately strikes you is the deep blue of the Mediterranean Sea that makes Nice a great place for “good-weather trips”. The climate and southern conviviality of its inhabitants instantly plunge the visitor into an atmosphere of total relaxation!
Located between the sea and the mountains, close to Italy, Nice is the fifth biggest city in France. Though it is the economic centre of the region, it hasn’t been affected by the industrial revolution. Tourism and trade account for most of its economic development. From the business district of the Arenas, the entrepreneurial activity radiates on the city and the region. Further inland, little villages are filled with natural treasures, authentic restaurants, places forever associated with famous artists…
Exchange, endless conversations, exclamations and interjections – Nice lives in the open! Away from this convivial hustle and bustle, many places hide real treasures. Just move away from the beach and the terraces of cafés and you will discover wonderful museums in honour of the numerous artists that found their inspiration there. Nothing like it to learn more about the amazing place of your stay! The town successively belonged to Provence, Savoy and Piedmont before it finally became French but all of these cultures have left their mark.
Palaces, castles and historical mansions, mostly in the baroque style, provide a very pleasant setting for Nice’s intense cultural life. Many sports events are organised downtown and in the surroundings all year round. Economic and cultural exchanges with Italy and Monaco bring dynamism to the jewel of the Cote d’Azur, which has always been an object of attraction. Seize this unique opportunity to upgrade your level in business French in one of Europe’s most inspiring regions!
