Prepare to surprise your palate with tastes as delightful as they are unexpected: it’s Nice, it’s different. Distinctive, original and authentic, the Nicoise cuisine is a mirror of the region: a fascinating combination of tastes and cultures, shaped by the sunlight and defined by the beauty of its simplicity. Passionate local guide who mixes history and culinary knowledge. 15 tastings (incl. olive oil and wine) from the best market stolls and best artisan shops. Equivalent of a breakfast and a light lunch.

Marion is such an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. We stopped at many varied places, tasting candied fruit, cheeses, olive oils, socca, farcies, and many other goodies. And we got a nice glass of wine from the area.
