Naturrally, Nice occupies the first place of the classification in the department with 1.84 million euros collected. This figure shows once again the essential role of the American giant in the economy of the region. Nice is indeed the third city in France which collected the most tourist tax in 2019 behind Marseille (2.35M €) and Paris (15.34M €) *.
