An explosion of colours, scents and tastes in the historical Nice

Your program
Meet your private guide at your hotel for a walking tour and fully appreciate the privileged as well as "singling out" atmosphere of this Nice old town neighbourhood

In an environment of exceptional baroque architecture, you will discover colours and light of Cours Saleya with its famous Flower Market, the place Rossetti with its Italian atmosphere, the place du Palais ... but also the narrow streets, the "trompel'oeil" façades… You will be thrilled with a guided visit of the Genovese Palais Lascaris which is the perfect illustration of the Barocco Art with the "stucs" and gilded decorations.

As a "break", you will have the opportunity to taste the famous "Socca" (pancake made with cheak pea flour) with a glass of "Côtes de Provence" wine!

Old Town of Nice
The beautiful old Nice was born between the hill of the "Castle" and the "Ponchettes" pier (a row of buildings converted into art galleries).

It was built under the direction of the Dukes of Savoy and has remained today almost exactly as Alexandre Dumas had described it over a century ago "an almost Italian town resting on its hills with its sculpted or painted houses and its "Madonnas" at the corner of the streets".

It's not just by chance that the Great and Good of this world have, since the mid eighteenth Century, chose Cannes as their holiday resort!

From the "Palais des Festivals" in the west to the Port Pierre Canto in the east, the Croisette unrolls like a fresco in a symphony of colours. It boldly declares its elegance, with its luxury hotels, its Festival, its shops with their famous names...

The places of interest in Cannes are the city on high (Haute ville), the old port, Meynadier Street, the Palace of festivals, the Croisette, The Antibes Street.

Free time during 1h30.

Then, your guide will entice you with the discovery of the countryside around Saint Paul de Vence, alongside with the legends and anecdotes of this authentic village. Arrival to the village - you will walk around the narrow and truly picturesque streets of the village, from the Porte Royale to the Porte Sud via pedestrian areas and you will admire magnificent stone façades from the XVI° and XVIII° centuries.

Saint Paul de Vence

Built on its rocky outcrop and surrounded by its ramparts erected on the orders of François Ier, St Paul is certainly one of the most beautiful villages in Provence. From the ramparts, wonderful views over the surrounding hills, the Côte d'Azur and of course the sea. The beauty of the surrounding area, quality of life and exceptional light has inspired numerous famous artists, painters, writers and poets, some of whom took up residence in the village.
