About
Jewish Heritage has a long and rich history in Nice, both during the medieval period as well as during the Second World War. On this tour, led by a Medieval Historian, we will visit the Grand Synagogue, the underground areas of the medieval Jewish ghetto, the Jewish Cemetery, the Mur des Justes and other sites. We will also discuss many of the causes of anti-semitism which arose during the middle ages. If there is time, we can visit the Hotel Excelsior and/or the Ashkenazi synagogue, Ezrat A’him. It is also possible to visit some of the communities in Nice which still speak the Judeo-Espanol dialect, spoken in Spain in the Middle Ages.

Fabulous tour of Jewish Nice
Jun 2020
I've been on many walking tours in Europe, but this was by far the most fascinating. Robert Levitt is a superb guide, and his research is meticulous. As a Nice resident, I thought I knew its history and streets, but Robert showed me details I'd never noticed before. I learned a lot about Nice's Jewish history, saw things that are in private hands that I would otherwise never have had access to, and remained engaged throughout the tour. I've been raving about it to friends ever since.
A must-do when in Nice.

Amazing Tour in Nice
Feb 2020
Yesterday I was blown away by the Jewish Heritage Tour of Nice hosted by Robert Levitt. Robert has a passion and deep understanding of all of Nice especially things related to Jewish history. Robert is very generous with his knowledge and enjoys sharing it with others. He is flexible and is able to cater the tour to any specific interest you may have. Walking through Old Nice Robert often stops to point out something interesting, we saw an ancient lintel adorned with religious symbols that we would certainly have missed without Robert's keen eye. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who loves history!

The Most Outstanding Tour
Feb 2020
‪Jewish Heritage Tour host, Robert Levitt, is not only medieval historian, he is also a passionate and knowledgeable fan of Nice who knows every street, nook and cranny of this beautiful city. How he shares the fact-based historical information of the sights and sites of Jewish Heritage and history is as wonderful as what he shares. His love of Nice is at the root of it and is palpable. I couldn’t help but share his enthusiasm and affection. We’ve heard the expression “He knows where the bodies are buried” in current political times. But Robert Levitt literarily knows where, why and WHO this bodies buried in the Jewish Cemetery are. He is an historian who’s done the research, not some tour guide spouting off a script. (I just endured 4 of those in Italy). His work has been published both in Nice and Times of ISrael. Most important, Mr. Levitt is engaging and goes the extra mile to make sure that those of us on his tour are comfortable, involved and find value in his tour. I learned more about the Jewish Heritage and Nice’s history than I ever did as a history major or Jewish history/heritage lectures and seminars. I highly recommend this tour!!!

Private Jewish Heritage Tour Nice, France.
Sep 2019 • Business
Robert Levitt, our tour guide was able to fulfill every request I had sent via email. My husband and I were invited into both the Ashkenazi and Sephardic ( functioning) synagogues as well as the old/ancient Jewish cemetery. He arranged a private viewing of an ancient passageway in the former Jewish Ghetto, introduced us to his local contacts, and guided us on foot throughout the Old City of Nice. Robert was extremely knowledgeable not only of Jewish history of Nice, but of the city itself. This day was truly one of the best. We were introduced to sights rarely seen by tourists. I highly recommend this tour.
