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.

Just few steps from the promenade is fascinating mixture of small shops and cafes, restaurants and bars. Narrow streets crouded all the time by local people and by tourists.
