This historic part of Nice feels like a medieval village with narrow streets curving between old buildings with red-tile roofs, small restaurants and open-markets.

Nice old town is quaint and charming. I've visited a few times and enjoyed eating outside the little cafes, drinking in the delightful little bars and browsing the shops. The flower market has a wonderful atmosphere too. Well worth a visit.

I visted here for dinner and came back the next day to stroll through the market. I'd recommend getting a set menu at the restaurants because it keeps you within budget. The market has lots of french soaps, flowers, locally made delicious biscuits, cheeses, lavender sachets & other delights. Definitely worth visiting.

The smells, the sounds, the people...all great. As an American I think I'm pre-determined to dislike my time in France. However, Nice is a completely different experience from Paris and Old Town is incredible.

Great place to spend the afternoon into evening filled with places to shop and restaurants to take away local foods. Then plenty of bars for a early evening drink before you head home!!!

Filled with gems! It is a MUST in Nice. Each bar, restaurant, and wine shop tells a different story. You'd love to walk in the narrow alleyways.

The Nice Old Town is incredible beautiful. The architecture here differs much from the rest of the city and the colours of the buildings are trully amazing! It's also a great place to wander around, get lost, have some romantic moments. It's also a place for nightlife, bars and restaurants. Definite must-see!

Vieux Nice what I liked the most in Nice. It is so characteristic that I sometimes think that it was built on purpose for tourists. Viex Nice used to be the criminal area of Nice, but it was recently reclaimed in order to restore it to its original beauty. There is nothing to do there, except walking down the narrow... More
