Tour description

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 at 18:00. Place Massena is closed on these dates. Thank you for your understanding.

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. 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 warrior because Nike in Greek means victory. Now, check your footwear, do you see any logo? 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. Suddenly it all makes sense, right? On our free walking tour we will contemplate the beautiful Belle Epoque Opera of Nice. We will visit the Old Quarter, and in its center is the Cours Saleya, where we will take a break so you can enjoy the unmistakable Mediterranean baroque vibe. In Place Rossetti you will discover La Cathédrale Ste Réparate, a baroque masterpiece. There will be a lot to see and to know, so we are waiting for you!

Sunil was friendly and engaging from the beginning. He provided just about the right amount of information for the length of the tour with a few brief stops to explore some of the main sights pointed out. An enjoyable way to spend a morning while also learning more about Nice!
