Nice city guide
Nice is a peculiar city, it's as if it had a personality split between being French and Italian.

It's no secret that Paris is called the "City of Love" and anyone who ever visited this wonderful part of the world surely wouldn't oppose that statement. But why do people call it the city of love?

Not only one of the best spots for a romantic walk but also a great place for a romantic dinner, especially in the evenings when the tower is lit up, it's jaw-dropping compared to how lifeless it looks during the day. 58 Tour Eiffel (http://www.restaurants-toureiffel.com/) is the name of the restaurant, it's on the first floor of the tower and you'll most likely have to reserve a table.
