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.

After dinner we strolled through Nice. More specifically the old town. It’s very nice with good history and a lot of action. We love the fountains and the cobble stone side streets. Exactly what you’d expect an “Old town” in Europe to feel like!

The old town is a lovely part of Nice. By day it is bustling around the flower market area and by night bars with live music and restaurants create a lovely atmosphere.

There is plenty to see along the sometimes very narrow streets of Old Town Nice. Shops, cafes, restaurants, flower market, fish market, churches. You can find it all in this wonderful area.

This is a lovely town to explore... so many features, too many to say... from the markets to the many shops and restaurants... be warned a long standing tradition has it that the cannon fires every midday , so don't be alarmed!
