Vieux Nice – literally The Old Town – is the perfect place where you can discover old local habits, enjoy local markets and experience tradition.
In Vieux Nice (the Old Town), you can enjoy many different delights: first, you can visit Cours Saleya, with its colours, its sights, its atmosphere (it was the main market of Nice in ancient times). Indeed, Nice is very famous for its flowers, then, don’t miss the chance to take a look at the largest flower market of the whole French Riviera, full of roses, carnations, flowers and plants of any kind. Within the market, you will also find different seasonal products, directly sold by the local farmers in their stalls.
In Rue de la Poissonnerie, take a look at Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden right above an old decorated door, then go down until the old baroque church of Notre-Dame-de-l’Annonciation. In the Old Town, you will have the opportunity to feel the Medieval atmosphere, enhanced by the narrow streets, old mansions and magnificent Italian-style balconies. Once in Place Rossetti, you might think you are in Rome: indeed, this famous Piazza links the French atmosphere to the Italian architecture.
Don’t miss out the Old Town nightlife, with relaxing and elegant cafés, cool bars and a friendly atmosphere!
