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.
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.
