  • In the Nice, under the trams, you will discover a haven of peace to a part of the history of Nice. Be quiet! We won't say any more, to discover urgently for Aboriginal people but not only... Guide very interesting and almost unbeatable in the face of the many questions that were put to him.

  • Little development of the vestiges of the old Nice, found by building the line 1 of the tram of Nice. Opening random, just if you're in the area...

  • Having been invaded and razed to the ground several times over the centuries, until digging up the roadways to built the tramway, it was not very sure where and how Nice originally developed. Settled ...  more »

  • The crypt opened for visitors in 2012. I read about it prior to our visit to Nice and looked forward to seeing it. A nice lady at the Tourist Office told me there would be tours in english. And It was to be expected, since the crypte is to be found on several lists of touristattractions in Nice. How surprising, when I called the center to make reservations and was dismissed by the lady on the other end of the line. Not only couldn't I make reservations, because there are no tours in english (or italian or any other language for that matter), she wasn't very polite about it either. There is not even a brochure in another language, in order to make it possible to follow a frenchspeaking guide. To my knowledge, many visitors in Nice doesn't necessarely speak french fluently. And I suppose the lady who took my call never travels outside of France. My point is that the crypt doesn't deserve to be on lists over what to visit in Nice. On those lists you should find attractions worth visiting for visitors.
  • Interesting tour. There are layers from middle ages, back to 11 hundreds, and further back all there. The guide was very good, and seemed to know a lot. Tour is in french, but the guide kindly gave us an English summary at each step in the tour. Not very interesting for younger kids, especially if they don't speak French . But good for adults.
  • It was closed. Couldn't find information about it.
  • It's interesting to learn history Niçoise, the crypt per se is not very special, but for the price it's worth it:

  • Tour only French-speaking. Very nice to see and well worth visiting.
