Nice, capital of the french riviera hosts a rich partimony
In the heart of Nice old town, the Cathedral of Saint Reparata is emblematic of Roman Baroque art, with its Latin cross plan, central nave, broad transept and majestic high altar. Reparate is the saint patroness of Nice. As a Christian she was beheaded by the Romans and according to the legend her body was put on a boat that crossed the Mediterranean sea to arrive on the shore of Nice accompanied by angels. This is also why the bay of Nice is worldwide known as the bay of Angels ( just like Los Angeles ! )
Nice old town hosts numerous beautiful baroque style churches. So a guided walking tour in Nice old town is not to be missed !
