What You Can Expect
With all this available, knowing where to start or what to try can be a challenge, but on this food walking tour, you’ll have an expert guide to give you the perfect introduction to the city’s cuisine.
After meeting your guide in the heart of Vieux Nice (Old Nice), set off on a gentle stroll around its labyrinth of tiny, twisting streets. Ambling through this Italian-built area of town, your guide will talk about Vieux Nice’s fascinating history, pointing out interesting architecture and popular sidewalk cafes.
As you walk, you’ll be welcomed into the area’s many colorful food shops like a real local. Try regional specialties like torta de blea, a chard and chestnut pie that’s served savory or sweet, or pan-bagnat, a Niçoise salad sandwich (of sorts) made with freshly baked pain de campagne (a type of French bread). Learn local recipe secrets while chatting with shop owners, and find out whether the city’s legendary Niçoise salad should be made with tuna or anchovies!
Sampling up to eight different regional dishes, plus olive oil and Provençal wine, you’ll feel like you’ve truly tasted the best of Nice while seeing its most gorgeous sights. Take in exceptional views from Castel Hill, visit a Baroque church and explore the famous Cours Saleya Flower Market.
As your tour ends, you’ll walk away with an understanding of the role that gastronomy has played in defining the city’s culture, plus some great insider tips for the best places to eat!
My mom and I went on this tour and it was the highlight of our time spent in Nice. Marion was our guide and she was incredibly knowledgable about the history, culture and food of the region. We started out trying traditional Nice specialties from the market, picked up baked goods, stopped in a lovely cheese shop, made a stop at a cafe for socca and espresso and concluded at an olive oil shop where we sampled the oil and sat down to enjoy the treats we purchased in the morning with some great rose wine. This is a must do tour for anyone wanting an insiders look into old Nice. Thank you Marion!
This was a wonderful tour with our guide Marion, she was absolutley the best. So knowledgeable about the area and food. We had many tastings in many shops and ended up drinking wine In a lovely olive oil shop......she even gave us more time then scheduled for. Rating above EXCELLENT!
