Free Nice Walking Tour
The best things in life are FREE.
The definitive way to explore any city is on foot. And, the best way to discover everything a new city has to offer is with a well-informed local guide. It all comes down to the guiding, who and what they know. Free Nice Walking Tours puts you into the hands of a trusted local expert because they come with years of experience and a vast knowledge. Try this . .
To set the scene, we meet at Place Massena, just by the statue of Apollo who is known as the most beautiful god of many things. God of music, truth, healing, the sun and light, poetry, and more. And there you have it, Nissa La Bella portrayed in a single statue.
The colony of Nice was founded around 350 BC by the Greek seafarers who had taken Marseille. They named their colony Nikaia, to commemorate a nearby victor because Nike in Greek means victory. Now, check your footwear, spot any logos? So, you’re walking in the footsteps of a Greek warrior, around a beautiful Italianate-French city, wearing trainers with a big tick on the side and suddenly it all makes sense. Ha, who knew?
Continuing our walking tour of Nice from Place Massena we take in the beautiful Belle Epoque Opera of Nice then head for the Old Town, a must-see for any type of visitor. It is a hive of activity, buzzing both day and night. At its centre is the Cours Saleya where we will take a break so you can soak up the unmistakable baroque Mediterranean vibe. Here you can wander round the market, pick up a few goodies and relax a while. There is so much to see. Look East to Castle Hill and marvel at the Bellanda Tower (Berlioz, King Lear and all of that!).
Onwards to Galerie des Ponchettes, the world-famous gallery dedicated to temporary exhibitions of contemporary art. In Place Rossetti (named after the Pre-Raphaelite founder Dante Rossetti) you will discover La Cathédrale Ste Réparate, a baroque masterpiece.
Ready to see for yourself? No problem. Join us on the incredible FREE walking tour Nice. And remember the best things in life really are FREE.
