The artistic, historical and cultural richness is a very precious asset for all of our country, Italy. According to this parameter, Italy is the first country in the world.
We believe that knowing the history and the particularities of the numerous places around us is a way to appreciate more what surrounds us. It can also be a fun way to travel, get excited and discover places that are not very well known, but no less interesting.
With Nice Places, for example, you can walk in the historic center of a city, you can consult the app to find out which places to visit, choose one and activate the navigator to reach it and when you are near a point of interest, you can open the description on the mobile phone to get a brief overview of what you are observing.
"They are wonders distributed a little in all our regions, which is rare because abroad it's not like that, and then they are distributed wonders all the time: it starts from antiquity, then to the Middle Ages and then to the Renaissance, '600,' 700, '800 and beyond. This is also a rarity because abroad there are wonders but, usually, they are confined to certain specific periods in each country. In Italy every generation, for more than twenty-five centuries has been able to create works that excite, of the works that UNESCO defines "heritage of humanity" and this makes us very proud of being Italian, but it also obliges us to protect and enhance this heritage and above all give it intact to the next generations of the entire planet."

Using location services provided by your mobile phone you can view a map that shows where you can find the places that are registered on Nice Places. Below the map you can view a list of places ordered by distance from you. Touching a place on the map or from the list you can open the card of the place and then the navigator.
With this feature you can consult the list of places divided by areas. Touching a place on the list, like the previous function, you can open its card and read the description.
We periodically add new points of interest and new descriptions. With this function you can see which are the latest places inserted and the latest places updated.
The application allows us to tell you all the latest news about Nice Places through notifications on your device, so you can stay always up-to-date!
On Nice Places there are over 300 points of interest that you can find in Italy and a part of them have their description. New places have been added every week!
The application is essential to find out which places are closest to you, but if you want to explore our database you can use the Places Explorer (soon available!) or click in one of the images below.
We are Dario and Lorenzo, two university students from Siena. We decided to create Nice Places to offer a new kind of experience to learn about the history and culture that characterizes our city and the places of our areas, great expressions of a flourishing and rich medieval past.
We dedicate part of our free time to this project and we hope that it will become a way to spread the knowledge of past times in a simple and fast way, even just using a mobile phone.
