Favorite Walking Tours in Nice

In this episode of the podcast, my guest Jeanne Oliver shares her favorite walking tours in Nice. Jeanne is not from Nice originally, she’s been living there for a long time, she has written a book about Nice (Nice Uncovered: Walks Through the Secret Heart of a Historic City), a VoiceMap tour (you know how I love VoiceMap tours!): The Best of Nice’s Old Town. She also has a website about Nice: French Riviera Traveler. Plus, as a keen historian she puts Nice on the map for us and you’ll love her restaurants recommendations! This one is a must-listen!

Favorite Walking Tours of Nice

  • Cours Saleya
  • La Colline du Chateau (Castle Hill)
  • Cimiez and the Belle Époque Palaces
  • Le Quartier des Musiciens with its Art Deco architecture
  • West Nice
  • And the world-famous Promenade des Anglais.

Restaurant Recommendations

Le Safari on Cours Saleya: good traditional Nice fare done extremely well like Bagna-Caouda (vegetables dipped in Anchovy sauce)

Acchiardo on 38 rue Droite. A family restaurant located in an old mansion. Casual, homey, friendly but also inexpensive and very good food.

Racines on 3 Rue Clément Roassal. A newer restaurant in Nice not far from the train station. The owner has a starred restaurant in La Turbie as well, and Racines is not presented as a vegetarian restaurant, but it kind of is. They serve the best vegetables.
