Nice on the Cote d’Azur

The old town of Nice – Vieux Nice

Behind the magnificent Promenade des Anglais  lies the Cours Selaya where the Flower Market is held daily and then the Old town of Nice.

There are many narrow streets of high old buildings and many restaurants. Lots of shops and artists studios. exquisite Churches, and a wonderful Piano museum. Maybe one of the very best restaurants is the very original Acchiardoin Rue Droite.

With quiet corners and washing hanging from balconies it is a cool and delightful place to wander on a spring or summers day. neraby the wonderful flower market bustles with life and wonderful stalls, not just of flowers but spices, artists, fruits sweet delicasies.

These are a few of my paintings of this lovely, original part of Nice.

About brianswatercolours

After spending 40 years in Aerospace I now enjoy painting watercolours of our travels around the world. I also paint for others who would like reminders of there favourite places. Most of my paintings are painted from photos that I have taken, or taken by others. This blog shows some paintings from Yvonne's and my travels together.
