Nice // photo diary
October 05, 2014
I fell in love with Nice deeply and irremediably. The color of the sea and the old town’s architecture stole my heart and I don’t intend to take it back.
We took a stroll on Promenade des Anglais by the Mediterranean to the old town, passing by Place Massena, near which I discovered a fascinating public space (I think it it a recent project) with an interesting system of water fountains, sprinkles and steam, apparently very simply resolved but very effective. I’ve never seen a public area to involve so many people of all ages (but mostly children) that were actually interactioning and having fun! Watch and learn, dear urbanists and architects 🙂
And the old town… man, how I wish to go back and have some photoshoots on those streets! I found them so beautiful and inspiring…!
I’m already writing too much. I’ll only add that here I ate the best macarons in my life (at LAC Chocolatier). Oh, and by the way! In Juan-les-Pins (a small touristic town by the sea near Nice, that’s where we were staying) I ate an amazing crepe au Grand Marnier, totally recommend it!
Nice the Beautiful, as it is said to be called, fully deserves its name. It’s definitely somewhere in my top 5 favourites and a place I’m going back to with the very first occasion.
