LITTLE PROMENADE AZURE LANDSCAPES

By Zoran Slavic

Nice, despite its Mediterranean-Latin seductiveness, the beauty of their environ ment that provokes the senses and memory, is like a city that is destined to people from his provisionally leave. And the return. As a famous work. But this also applies to ordinary tourists!
As I walked trace Scott Fitzgerald, I felt at times like Gatsby. Cruising the area adjoining the Côte d'Azur: Mougins, Grass, Saint-Paul de Vence. And San Rafael, of course. In which Scott Fitzgerald, with Zelda, wintered. And all the time we Nica in the nostrils. Its colors, smells, meaning. Sound and taste of lavender and sunset. While we soar greenery, the sky above us flows directly into the azure sea. And we are on a daily basis as to "stumble" on Picasso. It is the uniqueness of their fate in France: History and great artistic heritage, from textbooks, waiting for us around every corner.
In the small town of Mougins, seeking traces of Picasso, I find the Market Women, Marie Leoneli. In one early afternoon, after the rain, we arrived in Mougins, from Cannes, with the sole intent to experience an environment that is more 1938th attracted a great painter. By the following itinerary Fitzgerald. Asking for the house where Picasso lived and painted in a conversation with Ms. Leoneli Market Women of Italian origin, we found out that he was her customer. She showed us a notebook with his orders, the fact of his former wife. She remembered that in Mougins with Picasso were often and actress Lucia Bose, choreographer Serge Lifar and toreador Dominguez. And here, as guests of the great painter came Getruda Stein, Apollinaire, Matis ... artists who are mentioned in this stories about the Fitzgerald residence on Azure. Otherwise, Picasso died in Mougins near. In a villa with 35 rooms!? As if he was a relative of Salvador Dali! Then, from a small Mougins, we go to San Rafael. Where is the American novelist Fitzgerald just 1922nd wrote "Tender is the Night", all looking in Juan les Pins adjacent to the Cote d'Azur, which was not as prestigious as it is today. Which at the time, between the world wars, visited "lost generation." In what was and Hemingway. Among the novel "A Farewell to Arms" and "The Sun Also Rises." This writer is, in fact, Gertrude Stein traveled to this part of Europe classy.
We then went to town Saint-Paul de Vence. Here, in Saint-Paul de Vence, in half of the planned route to the South of France, a small town in the inland the Mediterranean, in the lobby of the Alps, with one foot in Provence, in addition to the dominant aroma and light. It makes everything different here. Life, art, and even death, while in fact it is still fascinating man to be avoided inevitable! The sun that is the source of that light, though not the only one.
Because at night I had the impression that this huge sky stored inside an enormous amount of energy, which interferes with the fluid in the solar daily unrepeatable. Serenity that is playing with lavender and sunflower fields that overwhelms iris green landscape. While the walls of the medieval fortress honey color image lead to the border of naturalness. Nature is here, in the hills barely move away from the sea, while the all-seeing talents of French and European Impressionists did not gave this piece of world art immortality

“Nice on Two Wheels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

A perfect morning with Nice Cycle Tours. Gustav the tour guide is well versed in both current and historical information on Nice. His combination of knowledge and wit made the tour both enjoyable and informative.

The tour is designed to give a person basic knowledge of Nice as well as useful information on where to eat, what to further explore/visit, and what to shop for. At the end of the tour Gustav gave out a hard copy list of restaurants and attractions to follow up with the places we cycled by. At the end of my time in Nice the list was well worn.

The bicycles themselves are well suited for this type of tour. They are easily adjustable, highly maneuverable and easy to get on and off of. My only suggestion would be to put a basic on front for easy access to cameras and the like.

“Great time but not for small children”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

This was a great way to spend a hot summer day. The tour took us to all the interesting parts of Nice, and we made our way up to the top of the Park and got some fantastic pictures of the Promenade. I will say that my 10 year old had a small scare in a very tight street in the old town, and I had to stop so we didn't get run over by cars. We lost the group for a second, but the guide doubled back and found us immediately. She was very sweet and made an extra effort to see that he was enjoying himself. Super fun, but a bit risky for small ones.

“Get active and see Nice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

What a great way to cover a lot of ground in a short space of time! From the labyrinthine streets of the Vieille Ville to the Promenade des Anglais; from the Hotel Le Negresco to the Chateau on the hill, Gustav led our happy little group of cyclists and regaled us with stories of Nice old and new. He showed a great sense of pride in and knowledge of the distinct character of Nice and looked after us attentively when we were in traffic or near the tramway. At the end of the tour, Gustav handed out a double-sided list of fun and interesting day trips in and around the city and his recommendations for the best restaurants and eateries in which to savour the cuisine Niçoise. His advice has already born fruit in the delicious meal we enjoyed last night! On top of everything else this tour is great value for money!
