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.

I can understand why people love and want to live in Nice. The market is great, changes topic everyday.

Very interesting narrow streets of shops but also includes Palais Larais with a display of old musical instruments and the flower market. Eat at L'Esplanade for Nice cuisine and friendly staff.

We walked around and saw major attractions after visiting Castle Hill (we were recommended to go to Castle Hill first because you will be able to see some places in Old Town from the top that you may want to visit). A couple of streets were a bit dingy (around where the local community centre is), so keep a more vigilant look out or you may be subject to some unwanted advances!

I took a stroll through the Old Town and let myself get lost. Overall, it was nice to discover the streets and browse through the shops, but nothing was overly appealing. I wasn't hungry at the time, but looking back, it would have been nice to eat at one of the many restaurants in the area.

Nice old town is the hub of tourism in the city, so always bear that in mind when shopping or looking to eat here, however there are plenty of authentic experiences to be had here and compared to other tourist-centric areas it isnt soley geared to visitors and the windy alleys provide plenty of adventures and suprises
