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.
