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!
Sample up to 20 different regional dishes, including orange blossom brioche, calisson (an almond candy) and two types of local cheese. In addition to the local olive oil varieties and 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!

The food tour was the highlight of our time in Nice! Our guide, Marion was charming, informative and gave us a great understanding of the food history of the Niçoise area! Enjoyed all the food items we were offered. Highly recommended!
Our tour guide, Claudia, was fantastic. Her passion for quality food is infectious. I learned a lot from her about Nice and its relationship with food. She even arranged a delicious small snack/lunch for us with items she had bought. I highly recommend this tour if you are a foodie, and even if you are not because you will become one after the tour! Claudia's tour reminds people to eat mindfully and joyfully. I would give this tour more than 5 stars if I could!
