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.

“Beautiful Nice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

The old town in Nice is a terrific place! There are great little restaurants and bars.....and a wonderful antique/flea market at times. A great spot to enjoy while visiting this part of France!

“Busy but atmospheric”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

The old town is very crowded with tourists but the streets are filled with interesting shops selling everything from touristy gifts to olives, cheese and chocolates.

“Old Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Loved Old Town. This was our first place to go when we arrived in Nice-after our apartment. We got there on Monday and were able to browse through the antique market and even made a couple of small purchases. There were plenty of places to eat. We had pizza at a small outside snack shop. Then ice cream afterwards.

“What a treat for the eyes, nose and senses!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

I visited the old town of Nice several times, in the morning, afternoon and evening. It is a great place to find snazzy little cafes, cool little trinket shops and neat little food shops! Every so often you turn a corner and arrive in an open square with a market in or another one with an ice cream shop (fenecchios is dotted around several parts of the old town).

I walked it alone or with friends discovering different areas, but you can also get guided tours to show you a bit more of the history and site

The one thing I should say is look up when walking through these streets, you can see where really people live, hang out washing and socialise! A lovely part of Nice and feels very safe.

“Great Flower Market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

My wife loved the flower market in Old Town. There is a parking garage conveniently situated right underneath it. It is well worth a visit when in Nice.
