“Though the light is intense, it’s also soft and tender.” -- Henri Matisse, the artist, who made his home in Nice.
The fifth largest city in France, Nice can be intense. But it is spring, the light is NOT glaring here in the south of France. It is a combination of clouds and sun with no real humidity and enough cloud cover to prevent the sun from being too hot. So what I am saying is … it is just perfect. We are comfortable on Saturday – our full day in Nice -- from beginning to end.
