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.

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.

Nice is a fab city, the old town is just delightful, feasts for the eyes around every corner, Cathedrals with stunning art works and decorations, grand civic buildings, a Saturday market for locals and tourists, loads of narrow windy streets and alleys to explore shops, cafes and restaurants at every turn and great restaurants .....what's not to love?

The fish places are great. Fresh food and friendly service. Interesting market in the center of the town with Varied stalls. There is a real party feel to the place... More
