vallon des auffes is a little corner of heaven on la corniche. watching the fishermen leaving the docks is a sight to behold. For fantastic pizza book chez jeannot, ask for an upstairs table - gorgeous view.

“Beautiful place, good restaurants”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Walk La Corniche, you will find stairs opposite to the Orient monument, go down and you will feel you are in a small fishing town. Restaurants are always jammed, especially Chez Fonfon, so make a reservation or have a drink and wait.

“A hidden haven of calm to escape to”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

We saw this tiny old fishing port, with authentic working fishing boats from the open top bus tour we did and decided to go back to it on foot from the Vieux Port on a later day. We got some local knowledge about a more scenic route to take to find it and went uphill and then down through an old part of town via many old steps, with views of tiny flower-filled gardens which we would have missed if we'd followed the usual tourist route. There are only a few places to eat or drink but the Fonfon restaurant, featured in the film "The French Connection" is still there and fully functioning. A pleasant place to walk to away from the main drag and although quiet in April it is probably packed with tourists in the high season.
