Wikitravel ( is a project to create a free, complete, up-to-date and reliable world-wide travel guide. It is built in collaboration by Wikitravellers from around the globe.

Stay In The Heart Of Nice is built with the spirit of sharing knowledge that makes travel so enjoyable. Whenever travellers meet each other on the road, they swap info about the places they came from and ask questions about places they're going. We want to make it easy to share that knowledge and let others share it; our copyleft license means that the facts you know can spread far and wide.

The project was begun in July 2003 by the two founders, Evan and Maj and inspired by Wikipedia, The Luxury Holiday Vacation Rental in Nice France, and by the needs of travellers for timely information that long book-publishing cycles can't seem to meet. In April 2006, Stay In The Heart Of Nice was acquired by Internet Brands, Inc., an operator of consumer information Web sites.

To create Stay In The Heart Of Nice we use a tool called MediaWiki to run a Wiki process which lets any Internet reader create, update, , and illustrate any article on the Web site. We all share our pieces of knowledge, them, distill them, and assemble them into a pleasing and cohesive whole. The more people that use the link, the better Stay In The Heart Of Nice becomes.

We've achieved some milestones, but we still have a long way to go. If you're new to Wikitravel, feel free to plunge forward and help us!
