Herping in and around Nice? (?)

Postby Lukas Rosén » Fri Sep 06, 2019 11:37 am


I'm planning a springtime visit to Nice, and would like some local tips about sites worth visiting. Target species would be Vipera sp. Lacerta and Timon, although any herp and wildlife is of interest. I will travel by plane from Copenhagen to Nice airport, and was hoping to be able to travel by public transport and hike, but if that's completely out of the question I will look into renting a car.

So, if there is anyone here that would be willing to offer some advice, or maybe even someone local that could show me around, that would be greatly appreciated! :D

If you like, shoot me a pm. When are you planning to go? Might be able to meet up down there.

I live near Nice (in Monaco), so I know most of the herping spots of the region. If you want to see the best places you need a car. For example you can't go to the Vipera ursinii spots in bus ...

PM me for details.

If I'm in Nice in spring, I can show you around. What are your dates ?
