The Greeks and Romans in Nice: who created the city?


We know the expression “Greco-Roman civilization”. But, if we look into the question, we will see that the Greeks and Romans had many points of divergence such as art, politics, philosophy, everyday life. Both were present in Nice. So which of the two moved to Nice first? Who drew inspiration from whom? What meaning should be given to the word “Nikaïa”? How and by whom was this city designed and built? And above all, what motivated such an enterprise?

All these questions will no longer be a secret for you after a guided tour of the hills of the Château and those of Cimiez as well as of the Archaeological Museum of Nice.
