Nice is one of France’s most beloved cities and one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations. It was originally founded by ancient Greek settlers during 350 BC. In fact, it was the Greeks who influenced Nice’s name. Originally, the Phocean Greeks named the area that they settled in Nikaia after Nike, the Greek Goddess of Victory. Centuries later, Nikaia would become Nizza after Italian forces invaded the city. Finally, in 1860, France would occupy the city and name it Nice. The rest is history in the making. These days, Nice remains as popular as ever. The city houses several iconic cathedrals, such as the Basilica of Notre Dame de Nice.
As of 2015, Nice’s population has surpassed the 350,000 mark. Moreover, about 42,000 tourists visit Nice every month. Nice la Belle, or Nice the Beautiful, is truly a one-of-a-kind city. We’re not at all surprised by the large number of people that visit the city each year. We’re also not surprised by Nice’s moderate crime rate. Robberies, burglaries, and pickpocketing occur pretty frequently in Nice. Many tourists, especially those from the US, have reported break-ins and bicycle thefts regularly. As enchanting as Nice might be, you’ll need to stay alert and exercise your best judgment when visiting the city.
