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.

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

Good place for architecture photographers. Good restaurants. Nice souvenir shops. It's worth to spend 1/2 day there.

It was a beautiful autumn day. Lots of sunshine lots of people lying on the pebble beach or even went for a swim. Very peaceful sitting in the famous blue chair on the promenade Anglaise and let the morning and joggers go be by.

Even if you've been to Old Town before it's always worth a visit, because you will always find a new shop, cafe, gallery or a pizzeria. It gets rather hot and crowded in the summer, but lovely nevertheless.

Reviewing a part of a city shows how weird Tripadvisor really is, but i will give it a try: People who live here must be really sick of tourists. As a physical neighborhood, Vieille Ville is beautiful and perfect. The shame is: when you have something this beautiful, you have no choice but to share it. And the tourism is... More

Have a stroll in the old alleys and explore lots of small shops. Do not miss the flower market where you can buy great soaps and bags of lavender for the best price.
