NIGHT TOUR OF NICE | Statue Garibaldi | samedi, 15. août 2020
It’s time to discover Nice by night, and see the city in a different light.
There is so much more to Nice than meets the eye; this vibrant city has gone through a lot of changes since its inception. Having been ruled by countless cultures, it’s safe to say the city is a true melting pot of its past influences.
Did you know that Nice only became French a mere 160 years ago? Well, it’s from this point of Nice’s new found identity that we begin to explore the history and the way it changed Nice into the city it is today.
Not only will you discover how Nice became French but we will take you through the cities more modern history from the roaring twenties, the World Wars, and the most recent developments that have changed the **** of the city…for the better.
During this tour, you will discover so much more than expected, as we explore and uncover the importance of contemporary art in Nicoise culture. There’s no denying that the city has some incredible pieces of art dotted around the town, but do you know the significance of the artwork? Our tour guides will unveil the stories behind the art and the impact it’s had on Nice as we take a walk around the MAMAC and the Open Sky Art Museum.
Tourism has been the beating heart of the city for the last 200 years. Following our exploration of contemporary Nice, we take a journey through the twentieth century from the extremely wealthy English who holidayed here in the winter and the Russians who built their own community that’s still very prominent to this day.
We take a look at the city from the lens of its visitors and how their presence helped shape the city into the holiday destination it is today.
Of course, we all know that the best things in life are free…and guess what, so is this tour! Our team continually works hard to ensure our tours are the best and if you decide to come along and enjoy the service we provide, we’d encourage you to leave our guides tip as a gratitude for their service.
