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.

A veritable rabbit warren of narrow streets crammed full of shops, restaurants, galleries and museums. The flower market in the Cours Saleya is well worth seeing

OK, it's a tourist trap, but the atmosphere is wonderful. I've been to Nice many, many times, but the Old Town never loses its allure. The tiny shops and stalls are an ideal place to browse away an hour or two - and then maybe a fragrant ice-cream at the ice-cream shop in the square.

This special area of Nice has great old buildings, churches, stores, narrow streets and alleys and many excellent restaurants and cafes. A trip to Nice is not complete unless you spend time in Old Town--enjoy!!

Only went through the Old Town on our last day in Nice and wish we'd visited earlier. The narrow streets and myriad shops and restaurants would've taken a full day to visit rather than the couple of hours we did. We went through on Sunday and it looked like the whole of Nice was there with their families, despite the grey day they were all sitting out on the street eating the very appetising seafood. Must return and try it.

A trip to Nice isn't complete without a trip to the Old Town. Filled with shops, restaurants, cafes and people, this place is hustling during the warm months and it's always so much fun to have a wander here and have a meal and some wine. The market stalls in the morning should not be missed!
