Throughout its history, Nice has gone through many major urban planning projects before becoming the major metropolis it is today. Among these projects was the one aimed at the expansion of the city to the east of the hill of the Castle whose citadel had just been destroyed by order of Louis XIV. This is how the development of the port and its neighborhood began. Find your accommodation in Nice harbour for a holiday!
The Lympia harbor was at the center of this project and it took more than a century and a half of work to transform the area of the eponymous valley into a commercial port of national interest. Although pleasure has taken precedence over trade, the places are still bustling with activity and host hundreds of ships every day. It's a sight to see the comings and goings of cruise ships and merchandise, prestigious yachts and small fishing boats.
By taking a rental in Nice Le Port, we find ourselves in front rows to admire this incessant merry-go-round. Moreover, a harbor area is naturally very busy at all times. It is also the case here and it is rather interesting for the tourists since the meetings and the exchanges with the inhabitants are frequent, allowing thus to know more about the customs, the customs and the local manners.
Lympia Harbor is not the only major achievement in the area. Other famous buildings and monuments, true architectural and artistic prowess were built here and by taking a rental in Nice Le Port, we have just the leisure and privilege to discover them all. Among the most notable are the statue of Charles-Felix, King of Sardinia and the church of Notre-Dame-du-Port, recognizable by the columns of its façade.
It is also by renting in Nice Le Port that we find ourselves as close as possible to the place Garibaldi, an emblematic place of the city of Nice, impossible to circumvent for all the tourists. The Nice tramway passes by here carrying thousands of visitors, but also Nice people who come to admire the scenery in trompe-l'œil on four sides of the square.
