Make sure you do this on a sunny day, or warm late afternoon. Beautiful old style with narrow streets. You can find a lot of restaurants and little hidden plazas. Great place to stay!

We loved it here, lots of restaurants and bars in interconnecting streets and quaint little shops and tourists shops all mixed in. Enjoyed a lovely lunch in a restaurant and a couple of drinks, watching the world go by! A bustling little place with lots of atmosphere, a wonderful little part of Nice!

This is where you want to spend your evenings and nights. After a day of exploring the beaches and even going out on the public transport to the cities near by you want to end the day in Old Town Nice.

the old town of Nice is interesting and enjoyable always, from early mornings to late at nights, 12 months of the year. If you want to get the best of it, visit it Feb-Jun and Sep-Dec.

If you are around this place then give it a visit. It gets lively around evening . However in the day time you can roam around the historic places around the streets. There are sports bar around the corners but very few. Sit back and relax.

A beautiful place, absolutely charming. A great chance for short or long walks, some shopping, coffee, wine, or decent meal. Narrow streets, full of old houses, almost each one with some history. A place to be.
