Full description
Escape the hustle and bustle of Nice or Monaco for the day on a half-day food tasting tour of the French Riviera.

Following a pick-up from your hotel, head to the countryside of Provence, and visit an olive oil mill in Opio. Learn the process of producing the French Riviera’s best olive oils on a guided tour of the mill, punctuated by a tasting of local specialties, such as olive oil, tapenade, and an assortment of olives.

Continue to the fortress of Mont Alban, situated above Nice in the surrounding mountains. Explore the military site, built during the 16th century. Enjoy a stunning 360 degree view of Nice on one side and the bay of Villefranche on the other.

Next, go to the famous Chez Pipo restaurant in the Old Town to sample some typical Nissarde cuisine. Founded in the 1920s, Chez Pipo is a local institution and the perfect place to get an introduction to authentic dishes such as socca (chickpea pancake) and pissaladière (a type of pizza unique to Nice). Wash it all down with a glass of rosé wine.
