What you'll do

We will meet at the famous Fontaine du Soleil on Place Masséna at 10 a.m. and set off together for a walk of just over two and a half hours through several must-see places in the city.

We will start with the green flow with its mirror of water (take out your empty bottles, that will be the moment!), Direction Place Garibaldi to then enter Old Nice and discover its typical little streets with all its craftsmen. We will see its history and pass in front of various cultural monuments such as the Sainte Reparate cathedral but will also pass by a number of restaurants and bars that we can recommend. It is of course possible to stop for a few minutes to taste traditional dishes.

Following that we will arrive on Cours Saleya with its famous secondhand market on Monday and the flower market and local producers from Tuesday to Sunday. You can also taste some local products :)

Finally we will end the visit in style with the famous Castle Hill which will offer you a panoramic view of the sea and the whole city. (possibility of taking the elevator for the less adventurous).

After the visit, you have the option of going to the Florian confectionery in the port of Nice, at the bottom of the castle hill. Being partners, you can benefit from a 15 € purchase gift voucher

Discover Nice with a passionate local!
I am an expert local, I know my city by heart. However, I am neither a historian, nor a professional guide, nor a history teacher. So are welcome those who are looking for a guided tour by a super nice local far from tourists :) a walk with friends through the city where we can hear stories about Nice and anecdotes and where we can taste traditional products (optional)

This was such an amazing experience! Fabulous thing to do in your first day in Nice. I had so much fun and enjoyed our conversation. I got the chance to see the city and the places i already wanted to see and got to know the history of nice. Karin was so nice, informative and welcoming. She knows so much about Nice that you get tips about everything: food/shops etc... I would definitely recommend her. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING.

Karin was a great guide. She provided us with a unique walk through of old Nice with amazing stops for breath taking pictures. We got to go to the best sites in Nice, but through intimate neighborhoods and bustling shops. It was about the journey and the destination.
