What You Can Expect

Italian Markets Shopping Tour from Nice

Stroll around the Italian market town of Ventimiglia on your tour from Nice

After complimentary pickup from your Nice hotel, relax in a comfortable minivan for the trip along the Mediterranean Sea from France into Italy. Upon arrival, you'll have a couple hours to browse for bargains and must-have items.

While the shopping in Nice is perfectly lovely, it's fun to hop across the border into neighboring Italy for a shopping spree in some of the colorful Italian markets of the Italian Riviera. These markets are known for their leather goods, fashionable clothing, luggage, household items, accessories and souvenirs.

After shopping, you'll stop for lunch by the beach in Ventimiglia (own expense). Giuseppe's is said to have the best pasta in the region.

On the way back from Italy into France, stop in charming Menton, called by some the 'pearl of France.' Take a brief stroll through the historic center before returning to the minivan for the drive along the spectacular High Corniche road. Stop once more for a photo opportunity of the view overlooking the principality of Monaco before returning to Nice and your hotel.

The minivan carries only eight passengers, meaning your small-group tour is limited in size, ensuring personalized attention from your English-speaking guide.

This tour was awesome! Although, I wish I had gone on this tour at the beginning of my trip or known that the sweaters, jackets, belts, leather bags and purses were a must buy. I bought all of these things and wish that I had packed light going to Nice so that I would have enough space to buy more. The next time that I go to Nice, this will be one of my first Group trips or I'll be sure to budget my finances so that I can buy more- the leather goods, sweaters and accessories are beautiful and good quality! The Small-Group Nice Food Tour was amazing too! My tour guide on that trip was Claudia, who was so friendly and every item of food that she chose was more delicious than the next!

Our tour was fantastic! The driver was very knowledgeable and explained the interesting history of the region, and the places we saw were gorgeous. We thoroughly enjoyed stopping at the open-air market, exploring the old villages, and dining at a great seaside restaurant. This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Europe.

Amazing we were the only 2 on the tour due to the bank holiday. Rolf was very knowledgable and went out of his way to look after us, nothing was a problem. I have been on many tours in different countries and been extremely disappointed! Therefore I must say this company from start to finish were Highly Professional. I will from now on only use Viator due to being so lucky to having an amazing day! I would highly recommend this tour and this honest company. Rolf is an asset to Viator there is no doubt! Thank you again Sophia and Ellen
