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.

Great market, wonderful old buildings. Visit Palais Lascaris (not a palace but a fascinating mediaeval house) and Cathedrale Sainte-Reparate. Of course, there is also Boucher Chevaline!

“Beautiful”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

this is a wonderful area to wander around. Theer is the market in the Cours Saleya where locals and tourists mingle and the narrow back streets filled with shops, cafes and restaurants. Let yourself get lost in this evocative area of the city.

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

“Lovely”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

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.
