Port of Nice

Nice, France

Ирина Мацанова

If you have already climbed the Castle Hill and walked in the Chateau Park, you have probably seen the port from above. In the evening, it is a good idea to go down — greet the colored boats returning from fishing trips, and multi-storey liners stopping in Nice for the night.

Take a walk to the lighthouse — you will be able to enjoy a double panorama from there: to the Promenade des Anglais and the city on the one side and the port with a paling of masts on the other side. Keep in mind that it's best to get there before the sun hides behind the rocks, otherwise the landscape will quickly disappear in the twilight.

You can also come here in the afternoon to see the workers in the boat workshops and to observe the creation or repair of les pointus — wooden fishing boats of the early twentieth century (yes, they are still used today).

You could even choose an apartment or a hotel overlooking the masts — there are fewer tourists here and housing is quite affordable.
