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.

“Good to walk”

I love to walk around the small streets at the Old Town in Nice. If you like to take pictures, you can find there many interesting things to make a nice photo.

“Flower market & antiques FAB!”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Different type of people in this area - few more locals & arty types... slightly more dressy (slightly) loved it here. Great atmosphere, smart & cultured. Must explore local markets in the little streets but hang on to your handbags! We witnessed a little thief! But don't let that scare you off - all tourist destinations have this problem.

Make sure you go twice-- day and night.

By day, it is quaint and old and has a great market and cafes. By night, it is fun, energetic, lost of people, street performers, muis-- love it

“A charming place”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

Nice was founded by the Greek! You can feel its old and yet the place is modern in every sense. The pedestrian-only-zone is perfect for great food and shopping.
