Via Nissa upcoming Schedule of Public Tours:
June 26 – Nice through English Eyes (in English and French)

June 27 – Nice through American Eyes (in English and French)
The weekend of June 26th and 27th will feature visits of Nice and the historical links to the English, American or Italian communities and their history. These three hour walking visits are guided either by active historians or archivists and also provide an excellent overview of the city. The Côte d´Azur is certainly the most famous French region in the world and one of the most original in terms of the diversity of its history.
Our Nice through Italian Eyes is a unique visit. For nearly five centuries, the political destiny, the economic life, the artistic inspirations, the popular culture of the country of Nice have participated in the history of Italy. Its heritage reflects the multiple influences of transalpine culture which found its originality in French heritage. Located on the Mediterranean, where France and Italy meet, at the crossroads of Provence, Piedmont and Liguria, our city offers a contrasting, rich and original cultural identity.
Set off with Via Nissa to discover the traces of a thousand-year-old history and culture that make up the identity of the County of Nice.
