Hidden Gems of Nice Guided Tour
An authentic Niçois experience for the curious traveler:

I propose an unconventional guided tour that highlights Nice's unknown attractions. Guests receive a copy of my Hidden Gems of Nice illustrated map which is color coded by neighborhood. With the help of this pocket-sized map, I will guide guests along the back roads of the city, revealing a curated list of 60 unique spots. Instead of visiting classic tourist attractions they can discover on their own, travelers get a local artist's unique insight to the best spots in town. Perfect for anyone looking to travel off the beaten track, this guided tour offers a trove of local delights and hidden gems!

We will start at the Liberation neighborhood and sit down for coffee to discuss our route. We will explore the market, then eat a full French breakfast in a bric-a-brac tea room. After that, we will pop into some quirky boutiques in the city center and port area, and end the tour with a pastis or homemade fig ice cream in the old town.

Meeting Time/Place:
10 AM at the green Générale de Gaulle statue near the Liberation tram stop

About your Tour Guide:
My name is Sarah Gleason. I am a 26-year-old Japanese-American illustrator. I have been living in Nice for 4 years now. I speak English, French, and Japanese. I love traveling, drawing, and stationery, which is why I started creating maps. I enjoy every aspect of creating maps including researching and discovering new places, designing and formatting digitally, creating illustrations for each location, and making the finished product a practical tool for the people around me. I'm very enthusiastic about sharing my art and Nice's hidden gems with you!
