After a campaign of 13 years, the city of Nice was inscribed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The reason for this honor is not due to Nice as we think of it today, the Capital of Summer, but as it was in the past, the Capital of Winter! “Nice, la ville de villégiature d’hiver”. To become a World Heritage Site is not easy. Something really special must have taken place and the story of Nice, how it took off from the 18th century, is really remarkable.

Dynamic, entertaining and above all extremely well informed, the curator who will lead this gentle walking tour will provide an overall understanding of the development of City of Nice from its roots to the present.
