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.

We visited the cathedral and stroll through many of the streets in old town. It's a wonderful experience.

We stayed in the old town via air bnb and really enjoyed it - you are a short walk from restaurants, gelato stalls and the farmers market.

The views were beautiful, and the area was just charming! We were sad we weren't able to return before coming home.

Very nice and charming area, with a number of lovely squares and small streets, ideal for the evening. Bars, restaurants, pubs... whatever, not often gourmet food but worth because of the environment.

We visited this part of Nice and although the old town certainly has lots of charm... the French people are soooo dirty. The streets smell of urine and filthy. Prices are quite expensive, which is to be expected in a tourist area. I was just...More

We have been to Nice a few times and always visit old town for its charming small streets with little shops, many cafes, and gelato galore. It is lively with a party atmosphere. Not to be missed.

Great place to visit in the evening. Plenty of restaurants overflowing in the streets. Very cosmopolitan. Mot restaurants are average in quality, but prices are usually reasonable.

You can wonder around the tiny streets of Old Nice any day. The architecture is astonishing. There are many candy and flower stores, very colorful. Try to cover this part of Nice during a hot day.

If you visit Nice take the chance to visit Vieille Ville. Take a break from the beach and wander through Old Town's narrow streets and alleyways. The French architecture, the colors of the houses, the squares, the shops and the café/restaurants will offer you an...More

I am visiting villefrance by cruise and would like to do a maximum half day trip to Nice. Can anybody please tell the exact place where the bus from Villefranche stop in Nice, near old town? The bus seem to be a better choice than the train? What is there worth seeing? Villefranche is such a beautiful port that I would rather stay there but my daughter wants to go to Nice. I will apreciate any advise on this. Thanks

Hi, if you have only half day trip in Nice I suggest you to take the bus from Villfranche, the stop is in the center of Nice near to the old city and to the flower market, which you have to go: it's spectacular. Then you can... More

Sorry for the delay. It was chilly when we were there the first part of May. So I'm sure it would be cold during your time frame. Would suggest looking at average weather temps online. Jacket, scarf and pants were needed. We... More
Staying 4 nights: where is an affordable lodging (central Nice) area for 2 adults with easy access to car rental (is that at train station?) walk or bus to train station area? What can we expect an Uber to cost to go from central area to Chagall museum? Is it walkable (downhill?) to return from Chagall Museum? Ideas for day drive outside of Nice (but not Monaco area) Thanks!
