Here's an interesting book for those of us who long to discover another side of Nice, France. Part work of art with its many watercolors of hilly city streets and houses, part invitation to stroll through Nice away from the mainstream, Balades Choisies delects the reader with a sort of treasure hunt.
The book leads you up and down the streets of the Cimiez hills, but also up Mont Boron, Riquier, St Roch as well as La Madeleine and others hilly areas of Nice. Text is sparse, enough to pique your interest without being encyclopedic. Very nicely done.
