What to do on a sunny lazy Sunday of February in Nice? You can take a walk on the Promenade des Anglais and sit on the beach relaxing and enjoying the sea side in winter.
Or, you can visit the the National Museum of Marc Chagall (free entrance the first Sunday of the month) and discover this artist.
The man lived almost 100 years: born in Russia he moved to Paris, back to Russia, to the US as an exile (he was Jewish), and spent his last years in Vence, South France. In 1973 he himself inaugurated the museum. I find all of this fascinating, both because he witnessed the great changements of the XX century, two World Wars and the Russian Revolution, and because his work received the deserved recognition while he was still alive-unlike many other artists.
At the entrance of the museum there’s a plaque that briefly sums up the main events of his life (and it’s the only thing I was allowed to shoot).
Since the visit took us just a couple of hours and left us very hungry, we drove towards the Vieux Nice (old town) and enjoyed a lovely walk from place Masséna to the port.
Here’s a glimpse of Place Garibaldi (another beautiful spot in Nice made even more beautiful thanks to Instagram) which I love cause it looks just like Turin, my hometown. Click here if you don’t believe me.
