Nice is the most important center of the French Cote d'Azur. Over the past 150 years, the city has experienced a strong demographic boom: its population has grown from 40 thousand inhabitants in 1860 to 350 thousand now, and if you take into account the territory of the periphery, it will turn out to be almost a million.
The city, founded almost 2 thousand years ago by the inhabitants of ancient Marseille, was originally called Nicaya, which indicated a victory over the Ligurian tribes who lived in the area. In the 7th century, he joined the Genoese League, and at that time he managed to expel the Saracen invaders from his territory. In the Middle Ages, Nice was an ally of Pisa against Genoa, and in 1388 came under the control of the Savoy dynasty. Except for a brief period during the 17th century, the city remained in the sphere of influence of the Savoyard dynasty - until 1860, when it was ceded to the French state, in return for the help provided by France in the cause of Italian unification.
Tourism in this city, where thousands of foreign visitors come, mainly from the USA, England, Russia and the Scandinavian countries, originated in the 30s of the XX century. The old part of the city, which bears a clear medieval imprint, developed in the harbor area, while the newly built modern area stretches along the Bay of Angels, where the famous promenade - the English Promenade - is located. In addition to the ancient Roman ruins, you can visit the Museum of Modern Art, the Matisse Museum and the Pablo Picasso Museum (in nearby Antibes).
