Our Touch, your Travels…

This is a preview of the full content of our Nice’s Best app.

Please consider downloading this app to support small independent publishing and because:

  • All content is designed for mobile devices and works best there.
  • Detailed in-app maps will help you find sites using your device’s GPS.
  • The app works offline (one time upgrade required on Android versions).
  • All advertising (only present on Android versions) can be removed.

The app will also allow you to:

  • Add custom locations to the app map (your hotel…).
  • Create your own list of favourites as you browse.

Of the six itineraries featured in this app, three cover Nice itself: The Old Nice Walking Tour is the core choice, while Nice In-A-Day covers The Modern Centre. These two can easily be combined if you wish.

A third itinerary, Outer Nice, covers points of interest outside the centre for which you may require some form of transport.


If you want to get up into the mountains there are two itineraries into the Mercantour, one exploring the Roya and the other exploring the Vésubie. (The Vésubie Route is only available in my Provence's Best App). These are the two main routes into the 'Beyond' as the locals call it.


You will notice that one of the main features of the area is the Baroque architecture evident in many towns and villages, so there is an itinerary featuring the Route du Baroque which you will see signposted.

The Riviera

Finally, since Nice is the capital of the Riviera I have written an appropriate itinerary - A Drive from Nice to Menton. A further itinerary covering the Coast from Nice to St-Tropez will follow later.
