This place is great to see plenty of history Make sure you have your walking shoes on. Lots of walking not really suitable for disabled people and access is bad. Cobbled streets. Shame about the shops don't seem to fit into the site but that's...More

You really have to visit this in Nice , it's a beautiful part of the city . Less grand in parts but full of colour and atmosphere. Very busy at times but enjoyed our wander through it.

Apartment right next to the steps of old town. Great walking with many sites to see. Great restaurants, bars, shops and pastry. Very close to the seaside. Loved it.

We walked through the old town and up the hill to the lookout. We had to keep on stopping to take photos. Nice surprised us. The old town was beautiful and grungy. Full of alleys and little hidden walkways. A feast for the eyes!

Many shops to visit - the French clearly have a lovely sense of style. The small fashion shops are lovely to visit (I am no fashionista but still worth a visit)

There is some road construction as you approach Nice but is concentrated near the harbour. I was there in June so it may be finished. It did not look to be a massive project. Happy travels.
