Learning French - Arts & Culture
Enjoying an extraordinary cultural and artistic heritage
Nice and its surroundings have always been able to inspire, through the years, the greatest artists, writers and musicians: Van Loo,Toulouse Lautrec, Modigliani, Dufy, Renoir, Picasso, Chagal, Matisse, as well as Prevert, Nietzsche, Aragon, Tolstoi, Maupassant, Berlioz, Bizet and Massenet.
Many contemporary talents have also found fertile ground in Nice: Nucéra, Le Clézio, Arman, Yves Klein, Ben, Martial Raysse, Malaval, Viallat and César.
Very proud of its history, Nice has also preserved its own dialect, the 'Nissart,' and kept alive its culinary traditions and traditional celebrations such as the annual Carnival, the 'flower battles', the 'Cougourdons' and 'Mais' festivals.
