Call on a greeter

A “greeter”, kezako? No worries, we’ll explain everything.

There is obviously no charge and it allows you to learn a lot about Nice. A very personal and unusual way to discover Nice.

La Prom’ en Segway

Why not? An electric Segway requires a few instructions first in order to perfectly master it but, once you’ve got it, you can discover the Promenade des Anglais or the Colline du Château from a different perspective. Mobile, fun, the Segway allows you to slip into all the places accessible to pedestrians without getting too tired. Ideal for combining an unusual way of exploring Nice’s cultural heritage with new trendy technology.
