The experience starts in a charming typical French café chosen for its history and uniqueness.
The perfect setting for us as I will recount to you the fascinating history of Nice
and tell you everything there is to know about the city, our traditions and local customs,
while we will comfortably savor a delicious café or refreshing drinks.
(Drinks will be at your own expense)

Then we will climb up that majestic Castle hill and admire the beautiful views on the famous “Promenade des Anglais” and the sea coast.
You will see the Bellanda tower, originally a medieval defense tower destroyed during the reign of Louis XIV and transformed into a Belvedere in 1825.
We will explore the charming parks, and they will reveal to you the ruins of the ancient Cathedral, the citadel and remaining bits of the old fortifications.
You will refresh yourself while admiring the charming waterfall that was built at the end of the 19th century.
I will show you the various viewpoints this site offers to enable you to see the whole city of Nice and its harbor.

On our way down, you will see the historical cemeteries, then we will walk through a path that will lead us in the Heart of the Old Town to finally admire the Baroque style Cathedral Sainte Reparate.

According to your wishes and needs, the tour can be extended or shortened.

Usually the meeting point is a typical French café, very well located in the heart of the Old Town,
but I can also meet you at your hotel or accommodation.
