Taste your way through local specialities and wine on this food tour which takes you away from the usual tourist trail and to the best food shops around Nice. On this Nice walking tour, you will not only get a feel for the flavour of Niçois cuisine, but also the unique history, culture and heritage of Nice. Discover places few tourists would see and taste food you'd be hard pressed to find anywhere else in France or the world! You have an option to choose between a day Market Tour or an evening Shops and Restaurant Tour, whatever suits your schedule.
We also talk about the locals' special relationship to wine at a local wine shop.
Whether you are a real foodie or not, this food walking tour will give you an out of the ordinary culinary experience! Get ready to taste an array of local specialities, surprises, lunch or dinner, and wine! Dig into some Swiss chard in a way you'd never imagine it, taste some sickly sweet candied fruit with the humble side of Riviera wine. Partake in Socca, the only true Niçois fast food, taste Les Petits Farcies—literally "the little stuffed ones" and pissaladière—there is no such thing as too much onion!
If you take the day tour, you take a trip back in time to Queen Victoria’s favourite sweet shop which is a non-touristy food lover's discovery of the secrets of the Old Town of Nice. Visit the best restaurant labelled "Cuisine Nissart", the City Hall stamp of approval and then discover a modern Nicois pub with a surprise in the basement! Enjoy a crash course on olive oil and white truffles, the gold of the earth followed by a taste of Nice’s best traditional dishes: Panisse, Pissalaldière, Tourte aux Blette and more.
