Discover the Very Best of Nice in just One Day!
Will you only be spending one day in Nice? What a waste! Nice has so many great and exciting activities for you to enjoy. But, if you’re only passing through, then I suppose it can’t be helped. Thankfully, there’s plenty of ways to keep you occupied throughout the day. And who knows, when you realise how great Nice is for tourists, you may even extend your stay!
Believe us when we say that there is no better way to explore a city than by taking part in a walking tour. And especially when the tour is free. Yes, you heard correctly, FREE! Our Free Nice Walking Tours are a great opportunity for you to explore this beautiful city in its entirety without having to break open the piggybank. Our local and experience guides offer a fascinating and engaging experience for everyone to enjoy.
Taking place everyday at 11 a.m., our Nice Day Tours start at the famous Statue of Apollo in Masséna Square. Make sure to keep an eye out for a guide holding a red umbrella! After a little background information (did you know is France’s 2nd most visited city?!), you’ll be led towards Vieux Nice. The Old Town of Nice is possibly on of the most enchanting parts of the city. The narrow streets and cobblestoned walkways will have you in complete awe.
From here you’ll get to visit a number of monuments around the city, each of which come with their own exciting story. To finish, we’ll end up on the top of the famous Castle Hill. Have you ever seen the typical photo of Nice on all the pamphlets and the postcards? The of overlooking a gorgeous blue sea and an aesthetic little city of bright colours? Well it is from the top of this hill where all of those stunning photos were taken. And now you to will get the opportunity to take your own pics! The view from up here will be sure to make all your friends and family back home jealous.
Unlike our day tours, our Nice Night Tour takes more of a look at contemporary France. You’ll be offered an insight how Nice complicated history has helped shaped its culture today. You may even notice aspects of your own culture!
One of the best features of the Nice Night Tour is getting to see the Open Sky Art Museum at night. Sure, the pieces of modern art located all around the city make for quiet the sight during the day. But when they are lit up in an array of lights is when it truly feels magical. The 7 Buddhists in Masséna Square are a personal favourite of mine!
Nice Private Tour
As we offer some of the only free tours along the French Riviera, our walking tours are understandably rather popular. Because of this, we hope you understand that some of our walking tour groups may be quite large. But don’t worry, it is our top priority to provide the best possible experience for all our clients! No matter the conditions. However, if perhaps you’d like to take part in either of these tours but with just your own personal group, then we also offer Private Nice Tours. All you have to do is email us via firstname.lastname@example.org in advance and we’ll sort out the rest!

Nice Food Tour
Another great way to explore Nice is through one of our fantastic Food Tasting Tours. Not only will you get to discover Nice’s Old Town, you’ll also get to taste some delicious food! You can’t possibly come to Nice without trying the famous Socca or Pan Bagnat. Over the course of the 3-hour tour, you’ll venture to over 7 different destinations, and get to sample up to 15 exquisite tastings. Your taste buds will feel like they’re in heaven!
While we’re at it, why not have a glass of wine or two with your lunch? Trust me, its not an uncommon tradition here in France. What better way to wash down some delicious food than with some equally as delicious wine!
Nice Wine Tasting Tour
While we’re on the topic of wine, we also offer Wine Tasting Tours for any self-proclaimed wine connoisseurs out there. You’ll be given an introduction into wine culture, and just how much work goes into preparing the perfect wine. The vineyards here in the Var region produce some of the sweetest tastes this side of the country. Your mouth will be watering just from the smell alone.
Nice Bar Crawl
Even if you only plan to spend one day in Nice, it would truly be a waste not to experience the nightlife here. Due to its reputation as a cultural mixing pot, the city attracts people from all over the world. And what better way to meet these people than by joining one of our popular Nice Bar Crawls!
Our pub crawls attract plenty of fun-loving internationals such as yourself, all just looking to meet new people and have a great time. With our bar crawls, we’ll take you to some of the best venues in Nice. What’s more, you’ll get a free shot in each of the bars and special offers on drinks. We’ll even organise fun little games for everyone to partake in along the way. I hope your good at Beer Pong or Flip cup, because our guides have plenty of experience behind them!
And how much for this memorable experience? Tickets booked online are only EUR 15! But they’re EUR 20 if you pay at the first venue. However, due to our bar crawls popularity, we highly recommend booking online in advance to avoid disappointment. If you are travelling with a large group, then why not request having a private bar crawl? Or if you are celebrating an event (eg: Birthday Party or Bachelorette Party) then let us know and we’ll organise something special for you.
