If you're someone who likes quiet surroundings and moments spent in peaceful contemplation, then come for a stroll on the wharf that leads to Nice's lighthouse. The stones take on a dazzling white appearance under the sun's rays and the light playing on the waves makes the sea glisten and sparkle with a brilliance that makes it a dancing blur before your eyes. Listen to the lapping of the water against the Pains de Savon (literally: loaves of soap), the enormous stones put in place to protect the sea wall. Here, silent fishermen - sometimes snoozing - wait for the fish to bite, while other people sunbathe - except when the sea is rough when you may get showered in sea spray! This refreshingly simple walk right in the heart of the city will do your senses the power of good!
