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 for walkers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We had a beautifully designed one bedroom apartment in the middle of the Old Town and it was perfect for us who enjoy walking to as many of the attractions as possible. For the sights that are further afield, there's the tram and the local buses with convenient stops at the doorstep of the Old Town. A note of caution: the narrow rutted streets and lift-less apartments may not suit travellers with tons of luggage to haul. Also, a lot of accommodation in the Old Town is not airconditioned.

“Charming and full of life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

A great way to be immersed in the culture of southern France. Shopping and food is great.
I loved the flower market and the beautiful views.

“Quaint and interesting area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We liked the atmosphere, the informal entertainment and the markets. Our hotel TV did not have a channel for the tennis at Wimbledon - only the World Cup! Our hotel Aston la Scala made enquiries and discovered a bar/restaurant that was showing the final at Wimbledon and gave us a map! We couldn't have wished for more!

“What fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

If you like exploring really old streets away from the glitz of modern traditional Nice - browsing in little shops - this is the place to go. OK, some alley ways were a bit grotty, but there are such fantastic little bars, cafes/restaurants - you will be spoilt for choice. A real must to get the feel for a southern French, Mediterranean city.
