What people are saying about Vieux Nice

Visited old NIce by bike on July 12th. It was a beautiful, smooth morning, no pressure. We were 6 accompanied by Samuel guide in the morning who really explained the history of Nice to us. I learned a lot in 3 hours and am delighted with the ride. We ended the morning with a tasting of Nice specialties on Place Garibaldi. I obviously recommend this ideal bike ride for everyone, even non-sporty ones, with the electric bike helping…. I also recommend the Bicicletta store which rents the bikes, the two vendors are very nice.

Frances was great, she made it interesting providing historical background to the city and the great food we tasted. She also gave some fantastic tips for other things to do in Nice.

The guide was excellent, knowledgeable, and very friendly. Every stop along the route was valuable. Trying enjoyed the experience and now feel comfortable in the old town.

Beautiful city - very interesting history, with quite a few surprises. Lovely architecture, relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommended !!
