  • Cathedral Notre Dame

    Cathedral Notre Dame
    The cathedral of "Notre Dame" of Paris, in the real historical center of the city (Island of the city, on the Seine) is a world-known monument and for sure one of the most visited places by the tourists in Paris. Always a very crowded place and typical "postcard" of your stay in Paris... But to say truly, the religious gothic style of this building is really worth the visit, it's a beautiful cathedral.
  • Tower of London

    Tower of London
    The Tower of London is a great place, because it's full of history and it's a great place to take pictures. You have a castle and different sections to visit, from medieval arms to the jewels of the crown, and many other things. In the main building you can take pictures, even if there is not so much light... Outside, you got the guards of the Tower with their old- fashioned uniforms.
  • La Reserve

    La Reserve
    Nice is well known for the beaches along the seafront. During the summer they're crowded with so many tourists that spending an afternoon at the beach is not so nice...BUT, if you know some special places that only people living in Nice are going to, you can spend great time on the beach without the tourist crowd :). One of these places (the people of Nice wouldn't be very happy if they know that I am revealing this nice place...;) is the beach called "La Reserve" near the port of Nice. Go to the port, following the coastal road to Villefranche and directly after the port you'll arrive on the Boulevard Franck Pilatte, and follow the road until the restaurant called "La Reserve".
  • Cemetery of Cimiez Monastery

    Cemetery of Cimiez Monastery
    The hill of Cimiez in Nice is well known for its old monastery founded in the 9th century and the actual Franciscan monastery is dated 1546. It was in the past times one of the main religious places of the whole area and the cemetery of this place is a very important one with some very old graves. You'll find in this cemetery most of all important families of Nice of the past centuries and some well known painters like Henri Matisse or Raoul Dufy who spent their last years in Nice. If you like angels and graveyard statues, come have a look at this place and you'll be surely fascinated by what you see. To go there, it's very easy: from the centre of the town go up north on the main hill of the city, the hill of Cimiez. It's indicated by street signs, and everyone in Nice knows where it is. Once at the gardens of Cimiez you'll see the monastery and its cemetery just behind. You can't miss it :)
  • Medieval village of Sainte Agnes

    Medieval village of Sainte Agnes
    This little village is a rare photographic, historic and romantic spot on the Cote d'Azur. Sainte Agnes has the official title of the "highest coastal village of Europe"!! Indeed, it's only 3 km far from the sea and 800m high, so you got a great point of view about the whole coast of Menton (also very nice little old town...) and the beginning of Italy, and the pre-alps mountains (Mercantour parc, great place too...) behind you. An old castle (mostly in ruins) is on the top of the mountain and was built at the beginning of the 14th century with the village just below. It was a main place to control the coast and to see quickly the enemies approaching from all around. Between 1932 and 1938 a military base of the "ligne Maginot" was built inside the mountain (it was part of the defensive line between France and Germany and Italy) with big artillery towards the sea and Italy!! Nowadays it's empty and you can visit it without problems, very interesting :)
  • Massena

    Massena
    The area of Massena is the main center of new Nice. The new parts of the city, which developed in the beginning of the 20th century started from there, just next to the old historical city, both were separated only by the river called Paillon.
  • Labyrinth park of Horta

    Labyrinth park of Horta
    If you're in Barcelona, and a little bit tired of the crowd and the cars of the city, if you're looking for a quiet and refreshing place, if you're alone or with a friend (or more...), have a little excursion to the garden and labyrinth of Horta, located north of the city of Barcelona.
  • Mont Macaron

    Mont Macaron
    It's an 800 m high mountain in the close vicinity of Nice. A beautiful place to see the blue Mediterranean Sea and the city of Nice on one side and Alps on the other. In spring, you can even see sometimes the snow on the mountains in front of the sea! Old ruins of a castle from middle-ages are on top of this mountain. The place is great, romantic and sometimes windy with a very large panorama from the Alps to the sea. You could find many places for picnic, to play football, to relax and dream. Many families are coming there on week-ends to enjoy the place. I like to go there to take photos. It's a great inspiration, between the ruins and the landscape to shoot with any cam.
  • Science Museum

    Science Museum
    The science museum in London is a great place because it's very interesting about many different things and because you can take pictures of almost everything you see! :) It's a way of learning many new things about science and what I prefer is the big room of planes, cars and space! Another very interesting part is about optics and history of photography and so many other different subjects.
  • Market of La Libé

    Market of La Libé
    It's the old market of the "Place de la Libération" named after the allied Victory in World War II and the liberation of the city of Nice in 1944. Since then, the place changed name into "Place Charles de Gaulle" but all the people still name it "la Libération", or best, "la Libé". The market takes place every day of the year, whatever the weather is. You can find all kinds of fruits and vegetables, great quality of fish, spices, flowers and very good Olive oil too... The whole market is very mixed in a very popular mood.
  • Englishman’s Promenade

    Englishman’s Promenade
    The Promenade des Anglais (literally the Englishman's promenade) is one of the main places to see if you stay in Nice. It's the whole coastal pedestrian walk along the seafront in Nice where you can admire the beautiful landscape of what is called the Baie des Anges, the Angel's bay.
