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.

This is where you want to spend your evenings and nights. After a day of exploring the beaches and even going out on the public transport to the cities near by you want to end the day in Old Town Nice. There are lots of restaurants but also lots of pubs and lounges that you can just relax in and... More

the old town of Nice is interesting and enjoyable always, from early mornings to late at nights, 12 months of the year. If you want to get the best of it, visit it Feb-Jun and Sep-Dec.

If you are around this place then give it a visit. It gets lively around evening . However in the day time you can roam around the historic places around the streets. There are sports bar around the corners but very few. Sit back and relax.

A beautiful place, absolutely charming. A great chance for short or long walks, some shopping, coffee, wine, or decent meal. Narrow streets, full of old houses, almost each one with some history. A place to be.

Love Old Ville as it has so much character and charm which is reminiscent of Italy. There is an open market selling fruit, vegetables and flowers and lots of restaurants that stay open all day. You could easily spend a day or two wandering around soaking up the charm.

The old town of Nice never ceases to fascinate both the visitor and the locals alike! It's really a maze of winding streets and narrow lanes and alleys, all criss-crossing and interescting, with the most fascinating mixture of shops of all kinds (food and fashion shops!) interspersed with cafes, bars and restaurants, many of which spill out onto the narrow...

Meandering down the narrow streets and numerous shops. Very clean and great value restaurants. The old town of Nice is adjacent to the new one so once you are finished shopping or visiting castle hill, it's well worth visiting the markets with spices and fresh fruit and vegetables and finish the evening in Restaurant les Garçons. We will be back.
