With countless eateries and shops, Nice is bursting with this authentic flavor, if you know where to look. Make your way to the heart of old town, known as Vieux Nice, to meet your local foodie guide. Learn about the area’s history and Italian influence as you wander through narrow lanes and past charming sidewalk cafes. 

Along the way, stop in an assortment of local markets and specialty food shops hand-picked for their variety and authenticity. Sample Provençal cuisine such as a pissaladière onion tart, stuffed vegetables called petits farcis and a Niçoise salad sandwich served on fresh-baked pain de campagne. Taste locally produced cheeses, olive oil, and wine, plus a sweet almond candy known as calisson. During tastings, chat with your guide and shop proprietors to learn how to incorporate local flavor into your cooking at home.

In between delicious dishes, visit other local highlights including a Baroque church, the colorful Cours Saleya flower market, and Castle Hill for fantastic sea and city views. After walking, nibbling and sipping, say farewell to your guide near Nice’s Place Rossetti.

What a great way to see parts of Nice. Marion was fantastic and brought us to great places to sample local foods. We really enjoyed it and you can see how much she loves what she does. She was so enthusiastic to share the food with us and we had so much food we were stuffed! I highly recommend this tour.
Nice food is great.

This was our second time doing this tour with Marion and as always she delivered. A wonderful selection of local foods and market tasting, followed by wine tasting was a perfect way to enjoy Nice. Marion is one of the tour guides I have experienced and her love of the food in Nice is infectious. Thank you Marion! Andrew & Shari

Marian is clever, creative & organized! What a lovely food tour in the old town! She introduced us to such nice varieties of nicose foods & served a feast with wines to finish.

Marion was a great guide. Very authentic experience in Nice! One of the best food tours we have been on. One comment was that we had 15 people on the tour and this was too many. Tour should not have more than 10.
Terrific way to spend the morning in Nice!

This was a great way to get a sense of some local specialties in Nice. Marion, our guide was terrific. She was super friendly and gave us lots of info on all the food and wine. There were about 20-ish tastings which was plenty! Plus, it was a really nice walk / tour through old Nice.

Fantastic tour. Marion was wonderful and so enthusiastic about all the food and drink we had. There were more people on the tour than I’d expected but it worked fine. We really enjoyed tasting all the different delicacies and hearing more about the history of Nice! Would definitely recommend this tour.
Fantastic tour and tour guide!0
Christy_D, May 2022
This tour was so much fun, trying so many new things and our guide put a lot of work into it. She was well organized and prepared. But mostly she was a lot of fun and entertaining. She knew her history of Nice and the food. She’s the kind of person you just want to go grab a croissant and cafe with and talk for hours!
Highly recommended food tour
