Lots of ambience and great eating places. Market day is always fun with fantastic fresh produce. Worth a trip but beware the car park fees.

The Old Town area in Nice one of those "not to be missed" places. It's a treasure of old winding narrow streets and wide avenues liberally sprinkled with countless cafes, restaurants, shops, memorials, homes, etc. The squares are daily hives of activities ranging from antique markets to flea markets to swap meets to flower shops and shows to farmers markets,...

Liked the lovely food shops, selling spices, oils and soaps. Dark winding streets that occasionally opened to a square. The Cours saleya was lively at night, with plenty eating and drinking spots

Well with a mooch around the pretty little streets and loads of shops to look into and buy something a little bit different. Loads of places to sit and take a drink or have something to eat.

Is to get lost in the little alleyways of the old town in Nice. Tiny shops, art galleries and bistros invite you to linger and enjoy the mediterranean atmosphere. Grab a café au lait somewhere and enjoy some people watching in first row.

The old city is a must see of Nice. Completely different form the big city vibe of the more modern spots in the city, is punctuated by restaurants, cafés and small shops. Definitely an wonderful place!
