Owner description: 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.

The city center is beautiful. A lot of shops and restaurants and the climb to the Castle Hill is fantastic. Remember that at noon there is a cannon!

We visited Nice before along with my daughter; this time we came with my husband in a Trafalgar Tour!
It did make a difference, as you can get to see more and learn about historic places as well.

If you love wandering around narrow streets framed by beautiful architecture then this is the place for you. A super place to lose yourself and discover markets, musicians and landmarks.

If you are visiting Nice you will find yourself strolling these streets. They are lovely and have some nice architecture along the streets. You will see many restaurants and cafes. Its best to just soak up the atmosphere as you walk around

Great place to spend some time wandering around. Mind you don't get lost, it's a real rabbit warren of a place, filled with interesting shops and some great bars and restaurants.
