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.
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.
