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.

“Go early have breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

We love the market here, flowers and fruit everyday but Monday.
When it a flea market, it get so hot and busy after 10.00am that I would recommend going early. Have a lovely breakfast or early lunch when it all gets to much !

“Bustling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We stayed in an apartment in the heart of Vieille Ville and had a great time. There is much to see, do, taste and buy here in the Old Town. It is a rabbit warren of alleyways and corridors, twisting and turning every which way. A visit will not disappoint.

“Always fun. All year round.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Very cosmopolitan. A year round City becoming more and more beautiful. Place Garribaldi, Place Massena, etc. and currently the new plans to convert the old Gare Routiere area in front of the university will add to the transformation.

We love this city - now our second home.
