"The Liverpool - Nice Connection" allaboutnice's Profile
I live in Liverpool in the UK but try to escape to my tiny holiday studio in Nice in the South of France as often as possible (if I can bag a cheap seat with easyJet) The weather in Liverpool can be very frustrating but in Nice the summer sun is just about guaranteed.
Weather apart, Nice and Liverpool do have a few things in common. They are both the fifth largest city in their country with all the advantages of city life - fine museums and art galleries, impressive architecture, a great choice of restaurants and cafes etc as well as Cathedrals, Universities, wonderful parks and sculpture. Both have attractive Ports and the city centres of Nice and Liverpool are within a few minutes bus ride from the airport.
Nice and Liverpool are very accessible now due to the easyJet route and the 40 minute check-in means that I can go from door to door in under 4 hours.
I have discovered many new places to visit in Nice and Liverpool from other VT members' pages and I hope that some of the information in my website may inspire others to visit one or both of these vibrant cities.

In Liverpool there is a jaunty model of the yellow submarine made famous by The Beatles' song.
There is a similar yellow submarine in Nice and here is a picture of it. (It's actually in Monaco by the Oceanographic Museum - but I reckon that's close enough!)
I don't have a picture of the Liverpool sub but you will find one here on Sabsi's Liverpool page.
This is the 'amazing maize maze' at Speke Hall in Liverpool (right by the airport). The maze has been a great attraction for the last few years and you get a yellow flag to wave if you get lost and need rescuing. Speke Hall is a National Trust property - a rare, timbered Tudor house in beautiful grounds with a (tasteful) playground and cafe. Well worth a visit. If you try the maze on a hot day, take some water and yes, we did have to be rescued. The maze is grown from scratch to a different design every year and therefore has a limited season as a maze, usually late Summer to early Autumn.

This is the classic photo that everyone takes in Liverpool; a view of the Liver Building in the far distance through the archway at the front of the Albert Dock.
The Liver Building is one of three buildings - the 'Three Graces'. The other two buildings are the Cunard Office and The Mersey Docks and Harbour Board Offices.
