Lovely place, so much atmosphere, too much choice of where to eat all good, loved it. So nice to join in and have good food and lots of people watching. Prices reasonable apart from the drinks and wherever you go in Nice soft drinks in particular are expensive, then it is a city so probably no worse than London.

Close to the beach and lots of restaurants and shops. Market stalls were good and worth the stroll around this area of Nice

We took a guidebook and did as self tour for about 2 hours while in Nice. So glad we did. The old town was charming, interesting architecture, and a nice farmers market located nearby.

I love the Vielle Ville in Nice. On Monday there is a wonderful open air antique market. Other days it is the Marche Flora (flower market) at lunch there are wondeful restaurants in the market. It is right near the Mediterranean Sea. Don't miss it if you are in the vicinity of Nice.

We took a guided tour around the old town of Nice, but we were a large group and to some extent this was wasted as, unless you were very close, you couldn't hear her above the hubbub around us. Not her fault, but it wasn't good value for us. Having said that, we very much enjoyed just walking through the... More

At night it was buzzing with people and life. Lots of restaurants to choose from and bars. Friendly people. The Sunday market was like nothing I'd seen before. It was amazing!!!
