Love the foods, love the place, love the atmosphere. Defo the place to visit. There are so many excellent restaurants over 100 which are all always busy ! Even on Monday. But you can assure that most of them are good French, seafoods.

Old town is a great place to shop and eat. It is easy to get lost. Once you make it up near the high area, the street blocks are broken up and it is hard to find your way out. Learn how to ask for directions!

Nice has a long history and the old town with its narrow streets,its baroque churchs, its shops selling spices and its restaurants offering typical nicoise cuisine is an amazing place to visit. It is the place where is also set the fish market and the flower, fruits and vegetable markets.

Loved wandering aimlessly through the Old Nice alleyways with shops, cafes, ice creameries and thousands of pedestrians and the like creating a busy hum unlike anywhere else we've been. We used google maps to find our way back out again.

Everything about Nice (and Old Town) was just beautiful. The views were great, the restaurants were wonderful and transportation was convenient and clean.

We loved walking around the Old Town. The main area was fantastic for a drink or food. Our favourite part was walking around the streets though as there were a lot of small restaurants and quirky shops!

Just off the beach is the real charm of Nice. The streets are tight and there is nice hustle and bustle. Take some time to explore and set yourself no goals.
