Jacques | about the guide

Nested in the South of France on the Mediterranean coast between the historic villages and the moutains, the beautiful Italian Riviera has a lot to offer. Passing along the panoramic views and the lands of luxurious vegetation, your local guide will drive you to the medieval town of Ventimiglia or San Remo, pearls of the Ligurian coast and real showcases of the italian gastronomy, especially fresh pastas. There, you will walk through the old streets full of little chapels and colorful houses, enjoying the anecodtes and comments from your guide. Then, you will visit the old local markets (the Ventimiglia market has the size of a third of the whole town), discovering the Italian food including pasta, cheeses, vines, and other specialities made of fish and seafood. In the markets, you will also enjoy browsing the different arts and crafts, and artisan products made of leather such as bags and luggage. At noon, you will sit in one of the sunny terraces and soak up the lively atmopshere while enjoying a delicious italian lunch with a tasty creamy cappucino and a home-made ice cream. In the afternoon, you will head to a traditional pasta factory where you will learn about the pasta-making process and meet with professional chefs who will tell you about the different varieties of pastas such as Tagliatelle, Ravioli, Torte verdi, Gnocchi, Lasagne but also the fiori di pasta, the local specialty. Afterwards, you will continue your stroll in the picturesque city where you will be able to buy some fresh quality products in the Via Cavour (in Ventimiglia) whose prices are 30% to 50% lower than in France.

After graduating from the Louvre School in Paris, I spent many years teaching art history on the Nice university benches before becoming a guide approved by the Embassy of the United States for personalities visiting Paris. Originally from the French Riviera, I decided to return to my homeland to share my passion for my region with visitors from around the world. Real archeology lover, I wanted to share my knowledge and my experiences with the public by organizing versatile and entertaining tours. I then founded Riviera Discovery Tours, which offers guided tours in English, French, Italian and Russian in the most beautiful sights of the French Riviera. Member of the famous French Riviera Cruise Club, I like to provide a high quality service to ensure the best experience for my clients. With my team of guides interpreters graduate from the French Ministry Tourism department, I organize tours of the geographical, cultural and historical heritage of the French Riviera, while adding a playful dimension. Visit the magnificent Picasso Museum of the beautiful port city of Antibes, discover the secrets of perfume making in Grasse, participate in a treasure hunt in Saint Paul de Vence... But also, discover the secrets of the ancient Mediterranean civilizations that have shaped the picturesque character of the French Riviera.
