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?

Bella Nissa

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.

knowledgable guide and beautiful tour

We did the free walking tour in Nice with a small group of just 5 people. Although our guide isn’t originally from the area, we was really knowledgable. He took us to some beautiful stops and also climbed with us all the way to the mountain top to present us a breathtaking view over the French Riviera. I highly recommend this tour. Thanks again!

best city walk I did so far

On Saturday me and two friends of mine (from Amsterdam) did the city walk with Shawn. I have done a city walk in several cities but Shawn is honestly the best so far! His humour and stories are so nice and his motivation to get you up Castle Hill was incredible. Through the walk we learned a lot about Nice and saw the truly parts of the city I think. Highly recommended if you are in the city.

strongly recommended tour

We wanted to explore the old part of Nice through this Free Walking Tour. Our guide Catherine was excellent ; she told us interesting aspects of the city, funny stories and managed to captivate the group, which was still quite large. Can only recommend!

spanish tour of nice was great

I did the free walking tour of Nice in Spanish yesterday and I highly recommend it. Isabela, the lovely guide explained many curiosities and history of the city. The group size was small which was actually great since she had the opportunity to adapt at all times and answer all of out questions. Well done, Isabella!

Awesome tour

Me and my friend, both in their 50s, joined Shawn and a group of about 15 visitors from all over the world for a 2+ hour walking tour of Nice. It was simply awesome! The guide was charming and informative and told us a lot of interesting things about the city. We listened to so many stories that are new to us, even though we are annual visitors to Nice. We would be happy to join Shawn on another tour!

Me and my friend did the free Nice walking tour as recommended by a friend. We were so happy that we decided to participate. The guide Emiliano was great and the tour in general was super interesting and entertaining too. A perfect experience if you want to get to know and understand the history of this amazing city a little bit better. We simply loved it!
