Great place for small shops and restaurants. Market place good with big flower market on Sundays. Quite picturesque with lots of narrow lanes

An ancient old town marketplace. A heaven for street photographers and shoppers alike! Stroll through the narrow stone-lanes, much like those shown in movies, take a peek through beautiful shops, buy a thing or two, and take lots of pictures! A must-visit place for people coming to Nice!

We ventured on a walk from the west of the town, along the Promenade des Anglais, to the port and back through the alley ways of the old town. Totally recommend it as a way of seeing the variety of life in Nice, from the commercial designer shops and tourist "tat" through the millionaire's playground where their "boats" get moored... More

Spend the day walking the area of Old Town and you will have a lot of fun. Many restaurants, cafes and bars to stop to refresh. If you do your research you can hit the best places form socra and other great things to taste, smell and explore. A very "Old" sense of how things were with rock pathways and... More

Must visit when in Nice. Some great little shops and a great cultural feel. Try some gelato as you slowly wander the alley ways and check out the different shops. Not much more to say, a very unique and historical area that would be impossible not to enjoy.

Put on your walking shoes and prepare to wander through this enchanting part of Nice. Flowers, food, architecture and local flavor abound. Try the Socca, a local specialty as you sit and people watch. Then head for some delicious ice cream. This is what you imagined France to be years ago.

Good to have a walk, eat some good ice cream and chill out! Near there you can go up a hill and have a very nice view from the top. Nothing too much to do during the day, its a small place, but it worth to have a walk and visit if you are around.

From the flower market, to the boutiques, to the excellent dining, to the wonderful architecture. This is bohemian, cosmopolitan and dynamic Nice at its best.
