Nice, The Old Town

A maze of picturesque alleys with colorful facades







The Old Town of Nice

The old town, or "old town", is the oldest part of the city. It is bordered by the Garibaldi Square and the hill of the Chateau to the north-east, the Cours Saleya and the sea to the south, west Paillon tunnel. Built from the fourteenth century to the nineteenth century, it has a very varied architectural fabric and beautiful facades of ocher, red and yellow tones. The old town is home to many palaces and churches, as Palais Lascaris, Sardinian Palace, the Church of Jesus, the Holy Reparata cathedral, the church of the Penitent ... On the typical narrow streets has many places for sitting down for coffee and heads towards the flower markets, antique market, fish market.


It is a lively and mostly pedestrian area, with endless shops and stalls, bars and restaurants, some of which are national institutions - Acchiardo or Cafe Turin, for example -. There are many souvenir shops, traditional and modern, as well as art galleries. At night, this is where the Nicois love to meet. The ‘Mairie’ city hall, the courthouse and the Opera are within it. In summer, Place Rossetti and their glaciers (ice cream stalls) are particularly attractive, especially the renowned master Fenocchio Glacier and its 94 flavors, and its classic originals. It is also recommended to stop in one of the traditional biscuit factories or to a local small restaurant to taste the specialties of Nice.


Once exclusively inhabited by the old Nicois families, this area is now widely acclaimed by an international clientele, where they will find the charm, tranquility and liveliness of this southern French city. In terms of real estate investment, the Old Town is an excellent choice for both furnished seasonal and yearly rentals due to its constant stream of tourists. In addition, you will appreciate to enjoy the cool freshness of the narrow streets in the summer.
