Themes for your stroll

Each Greeter proposes one or several themes according to his tastes and interests that he wishes to share with visitors.

  • A stroll around the city

    Nice, capital of the French Riviera, a city to be lived…

    Getting to know it in the company of a Greeter is just like being with a friend who shares his favourite places, his memories and his passions with you.

  • Antiquités et brocante
    Antiques and flea markets

    In Nice, antique dealers have their own district – between Place Garibaldi and the Port.

    Take the time to stroll and bargain with a Greeter in the shops or on the second-hand markets.

  • Cultural activities

    If, like many artists, you are fascinated the light, beautiful landscapes and relaxed atmosphere that define Nice, choose an outing with a Greeter who is a fan of culture and creation!

  • Cycle around the city with Vélo Bleu

    Vélo Bleu: economical (from €1 per hour), practical (more than 200 stations providing bikes 365 days a year, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day) and ecological…

    What better way to discover the city than in the company of a Greeter who will give you all the right tips!

  • Daily life and handy tips

    Live Nice like the natives every day…

    With a Greeter, get to know Nice “off the beaten track” and make the most of insider advice to organise your stay.

  • Discover a neighbourhood

    The port, Bellet and its wines, the north of Nice, Cimiez or Garibaldi : our Greeters will share their everyday life in their neighbourhood with you and all the useful tips that it involves!

  • Nature – parks – gardens

    Nice, the “Green city of the Mediterranean” offers more than 300 hectares of parks and gardens…

    Each one has its own identity, its rare species and its own particular charm, to be discovered with a Greeter who has a passion for “green fingers”.

  • Places to eat – local cooking – wines

    A Greeter whose hobby is local cooking will take you to his favourite places to eat and let you taste local products.

    He/she will even let you into the secret of recipes so you can prepare local dishes (pan bagnat, salade niçoise, tourte de blettes) once back at home…

  • Shopping – fashion – creators

    In Nice there is something for every shopper, from large stores to small boutiques or crafts workshops.

    Your Greeter will share his/her passion for shopping with you and point out the best addresses for whatever you are looking for…

  • Sports

    Walk or run, discover Nice while doing sport accompanied by a “coach” for a day who will guide you along the route.

  • Traditions – Anecdotes – Stories

    An outing which will take you to the heart on an unknown Nice, its traditions, anecdotes concerning celebrities who have contributed to its history and simply the life of the Greeter accompanying you…

  • Urban hiking

    Accompanied by a Greeter, stroll around Nice to discover the heritage and landscape of Nice during a more or less athletic walk, according to your tastes!

  • Urbanism – New projects

    Nice, an authentic city bubbling with excitement… Find out more from a Greeter about the city’s new projects, particularly in the field of sustainable development.

Your experience with a Greeter

  • It was a fantastic time with a wonderful greeter in a beautiful city

    Michael, Germany — April 2022
  • I found the perfect greeter in Anne! She showed me things I would never have discovered or even thought of looking for. She really knows her city. She is such good company and we got on so well that we met twice after the initial tour.
    I can’t recommend her strongly enough.

    Jane, Germany — Mars 2022
  • I spent a wonderful morning with Jean-Pierre who took me around in his Cimiez area. He was so kind to give me a lot of explanations and stories and the historical background in a very attractive manner, so that I never will forget it !
    It really was a perfect stroll and I am sure that this is the best way to learn a lot about a city you don’t know.

    Beate, Germany — February 2022
