Successively Ligurian, Greek and Roman … Nice became French in 1860! It can therfore be proud of exceptional wealth, both culturally, urbanistic, artistic and gastronomic…Very important in the region, tourism has meanwhile enabled Nice to develop in a very important way. All these factors make Nice what it is today, a city of history and traditions! The fiercest people of Nice will tell you they are from Nice before being French! They would also be Nissart !!! We call it « Nissartitude ». In a more flexible way, it can be said that local traditions and niçoise culture are omnipresent in the life of the city and its inhabitants. Which gives a real authentic character to this world-famous city.
