Nice tramway Line 1 links the northern and eastern suburbs via the city centre. It opened in 2007.It was
originally to use the ground-level power supply third rail system as used by Bordeaux tramway.
However, this was abandoned in favor of the more conventional overhead power supply cables providing
750V DC, unless the tram crosses the Place Massena and Garibaldi, when it lowers its pantograph and
relies on its onboard nickel-metal hydride batteries to cross these large open spaces, where the wires
would be an eyesore.

ニースは、フランスの南東部に位置する都市で 地中海・コート・ダジュールに面する、世界的に有名な保養地・
観光都市である。 マルセイユとイタリアのヴェンティミリアを結ぶフランス国鉄の鉄道路線が通る。タンド峠を
越えてイタリアのクーネオに至るタンド線が分岐する。このほかプロヴァンスの山岳地帯へ向かうプロヴァンス
鉄道の起点でもある。  

市内交通として路面電車があるが、1953年に廃止された後、2007年新たに路線が建設された。その路線で、
市内中心部のマセナ広場とガリバルディ広場を通る区間は、架線給電ではなく、蓄電池を使用した区間となって
いる。 都市景観を重視した電気方式を採用していることが評価されており、建設に合わせた街路樹の植生や、
沿線にアーティストによる現代芸術作品を設置するなどの「街の衣替え」の実践を行っている。

今回のホテル喫煙客室調査で意外にも多くのホテルが建物内の喫煙スペースを廃止し全面禁煙としていることが
分かった。ニース市内で完全禁煙を実施しているホテルを以下に示した。レ・メリディアン・ホテルは
「フランスの法律でそうなっている」と言い張ったが、市内の他のホテルの状況は把握していないようだ。
台湾や米国ボストン市などでは行政の関与があり、法律で喫煙客室を含めホテル内での喫煙を禁止しているが、
その他の国では従業員の立ち入らない喫煙客室は、ホテル側の自主的な判断で決められている。カナダ・
ブリティシュコロンビア州、アルバータ州では全室禁煙であることがスタンダードとなっており、ホテル側も
利用客側も、喫煙空間を屋内に設けることへの拒否反応が顕著になっている。

健康に留意している人は、喫煙客室を設けているホテルは、たとえ予約時に禁煙ルームを確保できたとしても、
通路などに有害煙 が漏れていることがあるので、回避したほうがよい。これからのホテルの選択基準の重要な
指標に、喫煙客室の有無とその比率とが加えられるべきと考えられる。


全館禁煙:レ・メリディアン・ニース、プロムナード・デ・ザングレ・メルキュール・ニース、
ホテル・ウエストミニスター、レ・ロイヤル、グランドホテル・アストン、ホリデー・イン
