“Magnificent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

Fabulous Tuscan style architecture and wonderful morning fruit and flower market. Some narrow streets with excellent patisserie and street food. Some shade from the sun and every type of shop imaginable. Great during the day and at night with excellent restaurants.

“A little bit of Italy in a part of France”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

Really liked wandering the streets in this part of Nice. Very reminiscent of very many towns in Italy. Cortona comes to mind.
The Course Saleya Flower Market during market hours is a definite must for a visit and not a bad place to pick up fresh produce and flowers.

“Lots to see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

There is a lot going on in Old Town and worth wandering around. Found a cute fromagerie and they were very helpful and nice. Very quaint, but not inexpensive.

“Old town Nice is the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

If you are staying in Nice the Old Town is the way to go. Streets are pedestrian only, and great nightlife. Not to mention all the great food, ice cream and right on the sea.
