Full description
The stunning Old Town of Nice (known locally as Le Vieux Nice) is a lovely honeycomb of narrow streets, dotted with beautiful baroque churches, boutique shops and charming restaurants — hidden gems can be found around every corner. It’s a hive of activity with vibrant squares, buzzing both day and night.

The tour is conducted in English and runs Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, commencing at 10:30 AM and at 4:00 PM. After meeting your guide at the Place Massena Square fountain, head past architectural masterpieces such as Nice Town Hall, the Opera House, and Palais de la Prefecture. Explore the Palace of Justice Square and Rosetti Square, where Nice Cathedral is situated, before discovering the bustling Cours Saleya market. Amble down the famous Promenade des Anglais, the Port of Old Nice, Belanda’s Tower, and the final destination of the historic Castle Hill.

During the tour, you will have a short break at the Cours Saleya market, where you can try local Nicois delicacies and purchase handcrafted gifts and flowers. Here, you can also take a quick trip to the restroom to freshen up before continuing the tour.
