How can a city on the edge of the “Bay of Angels” be anything but a magical place, protected by the gods?
Whether Greek, Roman, Italian, English or Russian, the many travelers who have stayed here have tirelessly left their mark, demonstrating an attachment to a city that both welcomed and fascinated them. This becomes obvious as you wander around the town; the Promenade des Anglais, the Russian Orthodox Cathedral, the Arena of Cimiez, the Régina Palace, the Majestic, Place Masséna, Place Garibaldi, and so much more.
These multiple influences have enriched Nice’s heritage and enamelled the picturesque landscapes of its exceptional sites.

WILSON DISTRICT, A PLACE FOR LIVING
Nice is a city where two hearts beat as one :
- The historical medieval Italian heart, with its narrow, winding streets; a symbol of the captivating and traditional charm of the South;
- The modern 19th century heart , with its sprawling urban landscape, already witness to rapid economic growth and fast-changing urban development that rivals the country’s greatest cities.
It is in this modern heart that we find the “Quartier Wilson”, a neighbourhood also known as “Quartier de l’Hôtel des Postes”. Emblematic of Nice’s modernisation, which was initiated in the nineteenth century, it boasts long, straight streets lined with stately buildings whose façades are punctuated by balconies, mouldings and decorations carved over time.
Close to shops, cinemas, museums, schools, public transport, services, the sea and the Coulée Verte (Green Corridor), the Quartier Wilson successfully combines serenity and vitality.The “Place Wilson” serves as a backdrop to the garden located in its centre, and this oasis of greenery makes it an exceptional setting.
