Private tour in the upper country of Nice
The Vésubie valley is a postcard, also known as the "little Switzerland of Nice".
At the end of the valley, at the Mercantour's gates, is located the Alpha park dedicated to wolves.
In breathtaking scenery, you will not only discover the fascinating predator, but also understand the relations which link man to the mountain's wildlife through several scenographies (English earphones). An incredible experience as well as a striking encounter.
On the way, through the old plateau of Valdeblore and the Tinée valley, you will discover some picturesque villages frozen in time centuries ago like Saint-Dalmas and its millennium church. There, facing the black wood, it's difficult to imagine you're only one hour away from Nice.
You will then visit Saint-Martin-Vésubie, one of my favorite place. In its charming streets you will find the cheese of the valley, the local beer and many memories.
