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.

It was very different, narrow streets, small houses and u can feel the historical vibes and that its something old and special! U need a good driver along cause lots of hills and slopes. I enjoyed this quick ride visit to the old town!

If in Nice, must have a stroll through the old town. Lots of fun shops. Stay away from nougat shops and the dyed cheese shops as these are tourist traps designed to rip you off.
