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.

La Veille Ville is a lovely little area of many cafes & shops - quite easy to reach from the tram or the Promenade Anglais.

Lovely quiet corner in the hub hub of bustling Nice. However, be prepared to pay for it in the way of restaurants. There is no view of the sea from here but you are paying for the atmosphere. Lovely to wander around the cobbled alleyways.

Nice to just walk around the old town. Old buildings, markets where you can buy fresh food, flowers, soap, herbs, antiques, art and much more. Ofcourse you get the typical tourist shops to get your souvenir or a couple of postcards. Visited a crepe cafe. They served all kinds of crepes with sweet and savory flavours. Cafe's and plenty of places to dine.Reminds me of the old town in Stockholm, Small alleys.

A superb place to spend a few hours wandering, window shopping and grabbing a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants. Some fascinating narrow streets and architecture.

Typical European old town architecture. Lots of toursists. Restaurants charging more then they are worth with not great service. Some homeless people inb the area.
