Nice’s Old Town, Flower Market and Ancient Winery

Nice’s Old Town, Flower Market and Ancient Winery

Discover the Old Town of Nice and its charms as well as venturing into the hills for a visit and tasting at an ancient winery.

Departing the port, you will travel inland to reach the Chateau Cremat winery. Overlooking the bay of Nice, Château de Crémat, is a unique castle on the French Riviera, and has one of the oldest vineyards in France. Approximately 2,000 years ago, ancient Romans settled in this area and carved out tunnels that are still used today to mature and preserve their wines. The vineyard of 7 hectares (17.3 acres) is spread over the hills outside of Nice and enjoy an exceptional microclimate thanks to winds sweeping down from the alps and others coming up from the bay with an elevation that allows the grapes to mature slowly all year long. Discover the vineyards, the history of the castle, visit the gardens, terraces, the barrel cellar and the Roman galleries. Enjoy an explanation of the winemaking process and tasting of the wines before departing for Nice’s Old Town.

Upon arrival in Nice, after your panoramic drive, you will proceed on foot to the Old Town. Admire the typical architecture while walking along Cours Saleya, seeing the popular flower market that is on display every morning. Note that on Mondays, the flower market is replaced by a flea market. After some free time to see this colorful area, you will reboard the coach to return to the yacht. Alternatively, you can also opt to stay in Nice and explore this area further, returning to the yacht on your own.
