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.

go back in time in the old town and stroll amongst the shops and bars. The flower market on Sunday morning was entertaining and had a bottle of wine in the café and the bottom end. We spent a great hour people watching and enjoying the sun.

Old Town was very cool. Small cafe's, markets on the weekend, the beach on across the street and just the whole area was a blast. Go,go,go.

Very historic area with cool shops and restaurants. There's a flower market down the center during the morning hours, and then it converts to a line of outdoor restaurants w/ live entertainment. One of the highlights of the trip to Nice.

Stay here for the season and go to a different restaurant every night. You will still have plenty more to choose from. Old, well-worn streets both broad and narrow and every one of them crammed with fooderies. We were strolling along, soaking up the atmosphere and people watching on a warm halloween evening. All this and French cooking as well. It doesn't get much better than this!

Great little town, lots of shops and restaurants. We walked a lot from here as there is a lot to do. We LOVE the beach and were worried we would be disappointed since its rocks not sand but we were presently surprised as it wasn't that bad (I even fell asleep). Highly recommend you climb the stairs or take the elevator up the hill to see the gorgeous view across Nice and walk around during sunset as the view is breathtaking.
