If you didn't arrive in Nice by train and you like architecture, then the city's main railway station, known as the Gare Central, is worth paying a visit to. Found at the juncture of Avenue Jean Médecin and Avenue Thiers, it is an imposing building, falling perfectly within the codes of beauty as far as 19th-century stations are concerned, with brickwork, mouldings and vast open spaces. Designed by architect Bouchot, it was built under his supervision in 1865. A really beautiful building that's definitely worth a look.
