Overview
Eat your way around Vieux Nice – Nice’s old town – on a 3.5-hour food walking tour! Led by a local guide passionate about the region’s rich gastronomic heritage, your tour includes up to 20 samples of deliciously different dishes from Nice. Sip wine from the nearby Provence hills, and try the famous pissaladière onion tart, the chickpea based socca or the succulent petits farcis stuffed vegetables. Learn about the Italian influence on the city’s cuisine, and visit top Nice attractions like the Cours Saleya Flower Market and Castel Hill.

This small-group tour is limited to just ten people, ensuring you’ll receive personalized attention from your guide.
Highlights
  • A small-group guided walking food tour of Vieux Nice
  • Sample a variety of delicious regional delicacies
  • Learn by tasting: Discover the history and culture of the French Riviera
  • Stop at local markets and specialty shops with a foodie insider
What to Expect
Meet your guide in the heart of Old Nice, where your small group—limited to just 10 people—is waiting to explore the legendary food traditions of the picturesque historic center. Your guide points out local eateries and charming sidewalk cafes, as you listen to the history and culture of the French Riviera. But most of all, you learn by tasting: sample a variety of regional delicacies with stops at hand-picked markets and specialty food shops. Dishes vary depending on the season, so you are guaranteed a fresh variety. You might be invited to sample a pissaladiere onion tart, a staple of Provençal cuisine, or local delights, such as a torta de blea, a chard and chestnut pie. You even learn how to make your own authentic salade Niçoise, along with other tips on incorporating local flavors into your cooking. In between tastings, get a firsthand peek at the charms of the Old City with visits to a baroque church, Cours Saleya flower market, and Castle Hill for a seaside panorama.
