The satellite view and the map show Nice, a port and a famous resort city in southern France. The capital of the Alpes-Maritimes department is located on the Côte d'Azur coast (French Riviera) of the Mediterranean Sea about 30 km northeast of Cannes and 13 km southwest of Monaco.

The area of today’s Nice is believed to be among the oldest human settlements in Europe. The place changed hands many times. Settled by Greeks in the fifth century B.C., it was the scene of the Roman’s first occupation of Gaul. The city was sacked in 1543 by the Turks. It was taken in 1792 by France during the French Revolution, when it was a refuge for Royalists.

Nice has a population of about 1 million people in its metropolitan area. Spoken language is French.
The region has a Mediterranean climate with mild temperatures most of the year. It was this pleasant climate which has, beginning in the second half of the 18th century, attracted first wealthy English people and later Russian nobility to spend the winter in Nice.

The city is #4 in National Geographic's Top 10 list of Beach Cities.
