The Villa Arson, a 17th century mansion is encompassed by 1960's constructions, which are home to the national school for the plasticsand teaching of contemporary art unfortunately only to be visited during exhibitions, which wasn't the case last week

Wonderful, Walter! I spent four weeks in that part of France when I was 19. I went to summer school in Cap d'Ail. Nice is beautiful. And as always, your pictures are great.

Besides the Place Masséna, the other main square in Nice is the Place Garibaldi - under road constructions at this time

Interesting perhaps that the tram crosse both squares on battery - trying to keep the historic view of those places.

The other day I drove by bus to Sant Pau de Vença (Saint-Paul de Vence), a medieval (small) town, similar to those in Tuscuni.
Built on its rocky outcrop and surrounded by its ramparts it is said to be one of the most beautiful villages in Provence.
