Nice and Juan Les Pins, July 2007. The long-awaited Nice Jazz Festival has become one of the most important and interesting events of the French Riviera. Taking place between July 18th/25th ( from 7pm till late ) in the amazing sites of the Arenes et Jardins de Cimiez, the festival ( one of the best Jazz festivals in Europe ) will certainly enchant everyone present, immersed in the Mediterranean vegetation, which makes it all even more unique.
