Visit Nice in 2 hours
The best way to explore a city is on foot. And the best way to discover the must-see places of a city is to have a competent local guide.
Then come discover Nice la belle (Nissa la bella) as the locals say.
It is one of the most visited cities in France, a title deserved since the city has a very particular history and geography that makes it a superb city both culturally and visually.
Once a Greek counter and then a Gallo-Roman city, the city was once the only maritime gateway in the States of Savoy. Nice was then part of the Piedmont Sardinia kingdom until 1860, so the Nice region is one of the last to have joined France.
There is also a very Mediterranean culinary culture mainly inspired by Provence and Italy. You certainly know the famous salad of Nice (without potato attention) or the pan bagnat, but don’t worry you still have a lot of Nice specialties to discover.
We will of course visit the unmissable Old Nice with its narrow and colorful streets, these small baroque churches, its sumptuous palaces, its countless bars and restaurants, not to mention its art galleries, since Nice is a city of art and history listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since July 2021.
Of course we will not miss the French Copacabana, the Promenade des Anglais, a large maritime boulevard whose image is known worldwide. It is the very symbol of Nice.
And the hill of the castle ideally placed at the seaside the hill offers a garden that is the favorite park of the Nice and tourists, its shady alleys and its multiple points of view allow to discover exceptional panoramas on the bay of angels, the city, the hills and the Prealps
