Nice (Côte d'Azur)

I spent my days in Nice walking around town ... practicing being in the moment :-)
The old town (vielle ville) mostly, but also along the Promenade des Anglais.
I fell in love. As in instantly fell in love.
What I didn't know was that Nice was actually part of Italy until 1860 (Garibaldi was born here!). In  fact the city feels Italian (and not only because the pizza was yummy). Their slang sounded Italian. The architecture of Place Masséna reminded me of Turin (which is BTW going to be my next destination!).

I obviously went up the Colline du Château ... for the view!

Marché aux fleurs (touristy but not too much). I loved it!

Don't the colors of the houses remind you of Italy?
This is definitely a place I want to go back to. Definitely!
