Nice maybe the most majestically beautiful place I've ever seen so far. It's no wonder Elton John has a house high above. I would too if I could. Nice is another world. Tim Fountain shared many wonderful stories about Nice's history, it's present and its famous inhabitants. I have a feeling it's just the tip of the iceberg of what he could say. Witty, sharp, endlessly interesting.
