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.

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 a flower market, where you can learn about local 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.
