Introduction of Nice
Nice is the 5thmost populous city in France yet it is the 2ndmost visited city in the country after Paris. It is also a hub of cultural activity with many art galleries and museums (19 in all). Only Paris has more in France.
The city of Nice only became part of France in the year 1860. For centuries before this it was part of the House of Savoy and this is why there are many Italian influences around the city. Nice has a long and rich history and it was originally founded around 350 BC by the Greeks. At this point, it was given the name Nikaia, named after the Greek goddess of victory – Nike. During the Italian occupation its name was changed to Nizza then when the city became part of France in 1860, it became known as Nice.
