Overview

This guided biking tour brings you the healthiest and most ecological way to enjoy French Riviera and see iconic highlights as you walk, bike and climb around these picturesque parts! Thanks to the eBikes that ride like normal bicycles, you will make easy work of the hills!

Here's the plan

Ride your way to the Old Port of Nice – Port Lympia. Lympia, as in “limpid”, refers to the crystal clear waters of the port where you can experience the contrast of the old world charms with the Italian palazzos that line it against the modern megayachts moored just beneath! In a quiet corner, you will see traditional fishing boats (the “Pointus”) that most visitors miss.

Continue onward to Mont Boron City Park and ride up to the picture perfect ridge and behold a stunning view below. You’ll find it hard to believe that you’re still within the city limits of Nice! The quiet roads are lined with olive and oak trees and every metre you ride opens up even more incredible views of the Mediterranean Sea. Thereafter, you reach the summit which houses Elton John and the fortress of Mont Alban. You will find that the fortress is in great condition despite being 500 years old, and ignored by most.

At 200 m/600 ft above sea level, this is the best place to look down on the rich and famous in Cap Ferrat, summer residence of Paul Allen, Adam Clayton, Somerset Maugham, Isadora Duncan, David Niven, Charlie Chaplin – and maybe yourself one day? The last leg of the ride brings you to Villefranche which has a medieval village centre hidden behind its colourful Ligurian seafront façade. You might recognize the scenery from countless movies like Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Never Say Never Again, The Bourne Identity, and to Catch a Thief. During the summer months you can go for a swim in the gorgeous bay just before you have a snack or light lunch (own expense) in one of the cafés.
