La Vieille Ville is certainly the most beautiful and intriguing part of Nice. A must see. Great bistros, gift shops, and cafes.

“Nice old town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

I really enjoyed the old town, with several places to have drinks and/or food of rather good quality. Some nice shops with olives, spices and everything else you don't need but want to bring home.

“Gorgeous Old Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Make sure you spend time in the Old Town. The market square is a delight (the bar on the corner at the entrance to the market is wonderful with really friendly staff) the many quaint alleyways have to be explored and don't forget to walk to the top of the hill, the views of Nice bay and the mountains are wonderful.

“Must visit during your stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Great area to wander amongst the narrow streets and view the multiple shops and restaurants. Great little shops to browse the local offerings and plenty of bars and restaurants to satisfy.
