Charming winding streets lined with tons of shops and restaurants. Would recommend finding a spot to eat here as opposed to other touristy areas. Loved the outdoor market.

Fairly crowded, but a good shopping and eating area. Many places to eat and reasonably priced. Almost every restaurant offers paella. I suggest you try the mussels (moules) with the creme sauce. Save the bread to dip in the sauce in the bottom of the...More

Great place for a visit to shop gifts and get a bite to eat. Lovely shop called Berenice & Eglantine for beautiful local perfume and hand made soaps. Try the local dish Socca with a beer in a cheery bar.

Any trip to Nice is not complete without a visit to the old town. You have to go during the day and at night as it changes. Lots of little streets to walk down and discover hidden charms. Lots of choice of places to eat...More

So many great shops and restaurants in the Old Town. This is a must see while you’re in Nice. Has a very Italian feel.

Just stroll; along between the stalls and restaurants when you will be inspired, enticed and prompted to part with some cash. A most enjoyable to fill an hour or so, then sit, have a coffee or beer and watch the world passy by.

This part of Nice is well worth a visit. Take the time to stroll around and admire the architecture and history. And the shops and restaurants. The main square is large and a good reference point for further strolls. Take a camera because there are...More

The harbor is a trafficky lots of exhaust and not that elegant. I would stay around the corner, in the direction of Nice and the Promanade des Anglais. The Beau Rivage nice and close to the Vieux Nice.
