Three views of the Jetee Promenade in Nice which was dismantled by the Germans during WW2  for scrap iron and because it blocked free fire
from German gun-batteries on the Promenade des Anglais, when they were beginning to fear an invasion on the Riviera beaches.  This
building was situated opposite the Casino Ruhl. (Thanks to Howard Shakespeare for this information)

Nice is a city on the Mediterranean coast of France which has become our favourite holiday
resort over the years. It has everything you need for a great holiday - superb hotels, hundreds
of cafes and restaurants, good shopping and a beautiful promenade. The only negative is the
pebbly beach, but the warm Mediterranean waters are so tempting that you soon overcome
this minor discomfort. Very lively at night too. At our last visit - May 2007 - a new tramway
system was being constructed, and this subsequently opened in October 2007.

removing much advertising which we know can be annoying. As a
result many pages - like this one - are not as we would like. Please
