In the heart of the old town.

The cuisine of Provençe boasts a unique fusion of flavors, blending the rich complexity of French food with rustic simplicity borrowed from neighboring Italy. 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.

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.

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.

Let down again.

Whilst in France all three of the tours I booked through Viator were cancelled. In this case the operator was polite and apologetic, but still was cancelled the afternoon before departure. Which left us upset and unable to replace the tour. Viator seems unable control there operators in France. I will never use Viator again.

This tour is a MUST!!

Marion is wonderful!! She is knowledgeable, accommodating, and knows where all the good food/wine is. Everything we tasted, and the stores we went into were fun and delicious.
