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.

“Best part of Nice?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

Old town is certainly becoming my favourite part of Nice. May different places to eat and close alleyways make you feel like you are really discovering Nice. Only problem is the best food places get booked up quickly and the poor food places are too available for you not to consider sitting down.

La Vieille Ville is certainly the most beautiful and intriguing part of Nice. A must see. Great bistros, gift shops, and cafes.

“Nice old town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

I really enjoyed the old town, with several places to have drinks and/or food of rather good quality. Some nice shops with olives, spices and everything else you don't need but want to bring home.

“Gorgeous Old Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Make sure you spend time in the Old Town. The market square is a delight (the bar on the corner at the entrance to the market is wonderful with really friendly staff) the many quaint alleyways have to be explored and don't forget to walk to the top of the hill, the views of Nice bay and the mountains are wonderful.
