Send a Parcel to Nice, France
The fifth largest city in France, Nice has a population of around 1 million people and is located on the south east coast of France. Its mild Mediterranean climate attracted the English in the latter part of the 18th century, and it has remained a popular tourist destination for them ever since, with its main sea promenade called the Promenade des Anglais! This attractive south of France town attracts around 4 million visitors annually, and not unsurprisingly has the second highest number of hotel rooms in the country.
The city has a rich history, which has been driven by religion and sovereignty issues, and was believed to be founded in 350 B.C.
In more modern times new forms of transport were introduced to the city with the first electrified tramway in 1900. The good transport links remain to this day with the city being well serviced with trams, buses and rail links. Two nearby airports bring tourists from all over Europe, and the Port of Nice features a range of marine businesses.
The climate, which attracts so many to the South of France is hot during summer with temperatures being above 20 degrees most days. It is this warm climate that attracts so many tourists so it is not unsurprising that tourism is the towns main industry. Besides the superb beach the tourists also flock to the many squares around town, as well as attending the numerous festivals that are held all year round.
Just remember that if you send a parcel back home from Nice whilst on holiday that you will need to look at the gift value limits so that the person you send it to does not get hit with unexpected taxes or other fees. Otherwise what may seem a nice gift parcel from Nice could prove to be painfully expensive one.
