    Nice, France is the most fantastic city on the earth. When I was there on vacation the walking tour around Le Vieux Nice was so educational. The narrow streets winded through the city.
    The tour guide started us at Massena Square Fountain and finished in castle hill. The entire trip was about two hours. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience and would highly recommend it to any visitor to Nice.
