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!
Amazing tour! Very authentic and very local! Our guide, Dorothy was excellent and lived in Nice for 14 yrs. She surely knew all of the excellent local cheese, olive oil shops and cafes, etc to take us. We have lived in Geneva Switzerland so we always look for more in depth local tours. Well done!
We had a wonderful time with Dorothee. As we walked through the Old City, she seemed to know EVERYONE! The tour was a nice mix of the city's ancient history, as well as the modern lifestyle of the locals. It was amazing to walk all over the city , from the market place in the valley to the castle on the bluffs, but the best part was getting to spend time with the girls at the gourmet olive oil and specialty foods shop. The women who worked there, along with Dorothee, spent so much time immersing us in their culture and food--they were SO NICE! Highly recommend this tour!
