Description

This 100-minute walking tour begins at the Nice seafront just next to Castle Hill. At this point your guide will provide an introduction to the Greek origins of Nice, the Italian reign over the city, and the English and Russian aristocratic influences. Get answers to questions such as how Nice got its name, the reason for its location, and much more. Enter old Nice by a historic door dating to one of the last Italian governors. Then begin your walking tour and learn about the old homes of local nobility, see the most impressive monuments and Baroque churches, and visit the city’s most famous market. Follow your guide through the honeycomb of tiny streets of old Nice and hear about the history of the squares and the street names. Stop to taste local delicacies suggested by the guide. Upgrade your tour to include a visit to the Castle Hill Park. After exploring the colorful streets of Nice Old Town, go uphill to get to know the history of the Castle Hill park (using either the lift or stairs) to enjoy breathtaking panoramic rooftop views, the waterfall, the ruins, the gardens, and the spectacular cemeteries.
