Vieux Nice - Old Town, Nice: 75 reviews and 141 photos


Vieux (old town) is Nice's oldest district, dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries, is filled with winding streets, workers' cafés and open-air markets. Despite the very chic shops that are appearing, the character still remains to make it a very enticing place to wander. The narrow streets are a kaleidoscope of yellow, orange and red stores, churches and cafes tend to look more Italian than French.

While wandering through the old town, take a look at the 'ogival arches' above some of the shops, dating back to medieval times. They have been carefully restored, especially in the Rue du Pont Vieux and Rue de la Prefecture.
