FREE NICE NIGHT WALKING TOUR

Important Notice: Night Free Tour Meeting Point Change

Due to the Carnaval parade, on February 20, 24, 27, and March 2, the meeting point for the night free tour is relocated to La Petite Maison, Rue Saint-François de Paule, Nice, France. Place Massena is closed on these dates. Thank you for your understanding


 

It’s time to discover Nice by night, and see the city in a different light.

There is so much more to Nice than meets the eye; this vibrant city has gone through a lot of changes since its inception. Having been ruled by countless cultures, it’s safe to say that the city is a true melting pot of its past influences.

Did you know that Nice only became French a mere 160 years ago? As a way to understand the identity of Nice, this tour will explore the historical and cultural developments of this city and the way it changed Nice into the spectacle that it is today.

Not only will you discover how Nice became French, but we will take you through the city’s more modern history: from the Roaring Twenties, the World Wars, and the most recent developments that have changed the face of the city.

During this tour, you will discover so much more than expected:

We explore the importance of contemporary art in the Nicois culture. There’s no denying that the city has some incredible works of art scattered throughout the city, but do you know the significance of these artworks? Our guides will uncover the stories behind the art and the impact it has had on Nice as we take a stroll past the MAMAC and the Open Air Art Museum.

Tourism has been at the heart of the city for the past 200 years. As part of our exploration of contemporary Nice, we take a tour of the 20th century, from the extremely wealthy English who summered here in the winter to the Russians who built their own community, which is still very important today.

We take a look at the city from the lens of its visitors and how their presence helped shape the city into the holiday destination it is today.

Of course, we all know that the best things in life are free…and guess what, so is this tour! Our team continually works hard to ensure our tours are the best and if you decide to come along and enjoy the service we provide, we’d encourage you to leave our guides a tip as a thank you for their service.

Tour Guide Leo was informative, fun, and very interesting. He took us around the old town, answered questions, and had us look for the building paintings that trick the eye (I forget the French word). Five stars!

Highlight recommend for newcomers!

I attended this tour as a solo traveler on my first day in Nice, and I highly recommend it to all newcomers! Our guide, Polina, was absolutely terrific, weaving humor with history to keep the group engaged as we wandered the various landmarks of the city. I loved Polina's story-telling abilities, and her friendliness and knowledge made this tour a hit. Definitely recommend!

The night walk tour was interesting! The building deemed significance when we knew the stories behind them. Our tour guide, Paula was very knowledgeable and friendly during the walk tour. It is free of charge and very beneficial to add to the Nice experience!

Doing the tour at night was something different and we wanted to check it out. It was really cool, because in summer it's so hot during the day that I prefer to lie by the sea, so I think the offer is really great and i loved the route. It was a very informative and amusing tour.

watched the most beautiful sunset together

GREAT TOUR! It was such a good idea of my friend to participate in this night walking tour. I will always remember it because we witnessed the most beautiful sunset I have probably ever seen. It was magical. Julia, the lovely guide was also super kind and knowledgable about all the sights and places.

Nice at night

such a cool and interesting tour through Nice at night. We did the tour in winter time which is probably the best time to do this night walking tour since everything was full of christmas lights. Very beautiful and very informative.

super interesting tour and light hearted fun

We really enjoyed the tour. It was a different experience since it was during the night but we kind of liked that about it. The city is as beautiful at night as it is by daylight. Mark taught us a great mixture of history, culture, interesting stories, local food recommendations and some light hearted fun. He was excellent with tips for anything from day trips to local restaurants!

I took two free walking tours with Isabela in Nice: the night walking tour, in english, and the morning walking tour, in spanish. They were amazing! Isabela is super sweet and intelligent and told us about the beautiful story of Nice and many curiosities. It was a great experience and the best way to feel connected with the city. Totally recommended!!
