Hello! My name is Marie :) Since I had the opportunity to go on Erasmus to Spain, I discovered a true passion for traveling. I love discovering different cultures, seeing amazing sites and learning as much as possible about them. So instead of staying for six months, I stayed for two years! It was in this wonderful country that after teaching French for a year, I realized that what I liked to do was pass on my knowledge. In 2020, I decide (and COVID forces me) to return to France to finish my studies. Today, with a professional tour guide license in my pocket, my vocation now is to research as much as possible about the history of the French Riviera in order to tell you about this unique history and more specifically reveal this unique identity of Nice. I work for Tourism Office, Agencies and Museum as a profesional tour guide, but I also work in an association to integrate international students in the city. I love talking to people from all over the world and sharing unique moments with them. I hope you like it ! See you!♥️

Tour description

Looking to discover the history of the territory? An atypical restaurant, away from the crowds? or taste the best Socca? an amazing view of montains and mediterranean sea?

This tour will be your reference!
With me, the French Riviera will have no secrets for you!

On the tour, you will see the most important sights such as:

  • Historical Center
  • Typical monuments and streets
  • Classic, Modern and Contemporary art
  • The most important Market of Nice (Saleya) ( if you book on morning )
  • Castle Hill with the amazing view
  • And many more…

As a French girl living in Nice, the tour is perfect to learn more about French culture, especially about french riviera history and his italian influence. 
I'll be happy to give you some tips and recommendations for your stay ;)
I invite you to the Place Masséna, at Apollon Fountain, to take a step back in time to Old Nice, the oldest district of the city and faithful witness of the evolution for generations. 

Will you join me? ;)

⚠️Please know that weather can change very quickly in this region and thunderstroms can be severe so the tour can be cancelled a few hours before.
