The Jewel of the Côte d’Azur
Guided Walking Holidays Nice, France
Ramblers Walking Holidays brings you the beautiful scenes of Nice, France. Picture a crisp clear sunny day, deep blue sea and a stirring view of
the Bay of Angels and Maritime Alps. This is Nice at its best, where
you’ll experience the pure light of the French Riviera that has
inspired artists for generations.
Add to this the romance of hill towns like Eze, Vence and St
Paul de Vence, the cornice roads, a sprinkling of Roman remains,
villas of the rich and famous, and you have all the ingredients for
the perfect city break exuding culture and natural beauty and with
a bit of luck wonderful sunshine.
We will spend five nights in the Capital of the Côte d’Azur,
exploring its best sights whilst soaking up the sounds and smells of
this opulent city.
Our hotel is perfectly situated allowing us to explore the city
straight from stepping out of the hotel door. Located in the centre
of Nice it combines ancient charm with modern comfort.
We will explore the art museums of Matisse and Chagall and
visit the Villa Ephrussi, famous for its nine exquisite themed gardens and wonderful sea views. We will also have time to
explore Nice’s many markets.
Local walks will enable us to appreciate this beautiful city and
the nearby headland of Cap Ferrat. Another short but pleasant walk
will be enjoyed between Vence and St Paul de Vence. The Town of
Vence is modern but with its roots resonating deep from within the
5th century having been rebuilt twice by the Romans and again after
the Second World War. The village of St Paul de Vence plays an
important role in the modern art movement yet still retains much of
its medieval architecture.
Garden lovers will enjoy our visit to Eze’s ‘jardin exotique’ and
on a tour of Old Nice, accompanied by a local guide, we will explore
the history and culture of this paramount Mediterranean gem.
