Tour description

Salut !

Do you have a small level in French, and would you like to practice and improve your French listening and speaking skills, all while discovering Nice? Then this is the tour you're looking for!

This tour is in French for a foreign audience that is still learning the French language, and on it, 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 at Garibaldi Square (Place Garibaldi), one of the biggest squares of Nice!

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).
  • The Memorial for the 1st World War (le Mémorial), the Port of Nice (Port Lympia), some famous and wealthy people residing in Nice, and finally one of the biggest squares of Nice, Garibaldi Square!

So, for those who can't wait to put their French to use, à bientôt !

Jasmin was an excellent guide! I only speak French at a B1 level, and Jasmin made sure to speak slowly and ask if I had any questions throughout the tour. It was a very immersive experience. Bravo!

¡Un gran tour con Jasmin! Nos contó bastantes cosas sobre la interesante historia de Niza y peculiaridades bien llamativas de la ciudad. Fue muy atento a nuestras cuestiones.

Jasmins Tour war sehr spannend und wir haben viel über Nizza erfahren. Sein Französisch ist sehr gut verständlich und wenn man etwas nicht versteht, erklärt er es gerne mit anderen Worten nochmals. Ab Level A2 ist die Tour sehr gut machbar.

What a GENIUS idea! And a matching execution. I've never seen this format anywhere but it makes so much sense! The tour was fun and informative, and Jasmin made sure all information he gave was understood. He didn't switch to English, yet always found a way to deliver the message. I highly recommend the tour to anyone who is learning French :)
