What do our tours include?
Starting at 10:55 a.m. by the city’s Massena Square Fountain, our local tour guides will offer you a fun and interactive introduction to the city of Nice, before taking you along the famous ‘Promenade des Anglais’. From there, you’ll be taken through the square’s colourful ‘Cours Saleya’ market, where you’ll notice a hive of buzzing activity. Feel free to explore the market for yourselves while we take a short break. Maybe even try some of the local specialties (the Socca is a highly recommended local favourite). Next, allow us to lead you down towards the city’s historic old town, passing by notable landmarks such as the Opera House, the Rossetti Square and the Place du Palais de la Justice, all of which have their own interesting stories to be shared with you along the way.
Vieux Nice – Nice old Town
Taking in Nice’s charming old quarter, you’d never believe it was once labelled the ‘Babazouk’ or ‘Monster’s Lair’ by locals. Its boisterous ambiance is all thanks to its collection of chic boutiques, souvenir shops, Baroque churches and delicious restaurants. If you manage to avoid becoming distracted by the appetising smell wafting through the streets, you’ll soon find yourself approaching the steps of the castle hill, so named for the castle that once stood there. From here, you’ll be brought to one of the highest points in Nice, overlooking the city in its entirety. You’ll even get a clear view of the French Riviera as it stretches all the way through the beautiful port town of Antibes and onto the home of the most famous film festival in the world, Cannes.
With its unique and astounding beauty, you can be sure to capture the perfect pic for your Instagram story. We’ll even take a group photo at the top of the hill that we’ll send to everyone’s emails! What a perfect way to commemorate your time taking part in our free Nice walking tour.
