Owner description: 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.

“Very touristic but great in the evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013

The vielle ville or the old city is full of great restaurants especially in the evening. But you also find quieter narrow streets with charming houses, nice illumination during night and a perfect place for a slow walk.

“A fun Labyrinth to explore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013

Old Town Nice is so much fun. It's easy to get lost, and not so easy to find your way back to a particular store or restaurant which just adds to it's charm. There's a museum hidden on one of the streets that made for a good stop when it started to pour with rain. We spent a lot of time just walking around, tasting the local food and exploring the tiny streets.

This is a good spend of an hour when in Nice! Yes, even on a hot day, the old town with historic architecture and market place is very interesting.

“enchanting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2013

Very beautiful residential area there-tall walls,narrow and wriggly uphill alleys,colorful houses.You can easily take amazing pictures from every corner of the residential area-(I mean the part between old town commercial area and castle hill) with the help of a little bit sunlight. It is quiet and absolutely enchanting since most tourists are crowded in the commercial souvenir areas and not very few would come a bit uptill to experience this amazing area. In dinner time,you can hear the residents speaking in their house, smell the great food aromas. It was an unforgetable experience.
