Enjoyed a wander. Bustling with every day life, locals & tourists. Everyday shopping - no big $$ required to shop.

I never tire of the old town in Nice with its bustle and hustle and great variety of restaurants and fish, flower and bric-a-brac markets.

We couldn't have spent enough time in this beautiful neighborhood. Just strolling through the alleyways and streets was a treat. We enjoyed the antiques market on Monday morning, and loved the little shops, cafes and gelaterias. I would definitely return!

I was disappointed to discover a city in need of some tender loving care. Much did I find that needed repairs and care, streets, buildings.

We nearly missed this wonderful historic area but having taken a tram found ourselves there. Squares of assorted restaurants all with shiny glassware and spotless cloths. In the day it is a bustling flower market but come early evening the council boys spray it all down and out come the tables and chairs! Such fun!
