Tour description

Hi there!

Do you want to do a super fun and knowledgeable walking tour of Nice, discover some of the most interesting places in the city and have great recommendations of things to do, more places to go to, and places to eat? Then this is the tour you're looking for!

On this tour, I will show you and explain to you everything there is to see and to know about the main part of Nice. The tour starts at the Fountain of the Sun (la Fontaine du Soleil) at Masséna Square (Place Masséna), then goes through the main part of the Old Town (le Vieux Nice), afterward on to the famous Promenade of Nice (la Promenade des Anglais) and it ends on Castle Hill (la Colline du Château) at the highest viewpoint of the city!

More precisely, during the tour you'll be visiting and learning about :

  • Masséna Square, the Paillon Promenade (la Promenade du Paillon) and the Fountain of the Sun.
  • The History of Nikaia and Nice, the Nine Oblique Lines (les Neuf Lignes Obliques), the optical illusions (les Trompe-l'oeil) and Molinard, one of the oldest perfumeries in France!
  • The Opera House of Nice (Opéra de Nice) and Henri Auer, the oldest pastry shop in Nice!
  • Cours Saleya and the famous Flower Market of Nice (le Marché aux Fleurs).
  • The Canon Fire at noon and the Palace of the Kings of Sardinia (le Palais des Rois Sardes).
  • The Bank Robbery of the Century (le Casse du Siècle) was done by Albert Spaggiari!
  • The Nice Cathedral (la Sainte-Réparate) and Rossetti Square (Place Rossetti).
  • The architecture in Old Town, the local food and even the local language!
  • The Promenade of Nice, the Négresco, and the Dock of the United States (le Quai des États-Unis).

Jasmin was great. His style is calm and very easy going. The timing of this tour is great as well as you go bit earlier than the rest of the crowd. The tour didn't felt rushed at all, which is great.
