When you visit Nice, France, exploring the Old Town (Vieux Nice) is a must. Colorful buildings, charming shops, and bustling markets line its narrow, winding streets. The Cours Saleya market, held every day except Monday, is a vibrant spectacle where vendors sell fresh produce, flowers, and local delicacies. On Mondays, it transforms into the marché à la brocante, an antiques and flea market. You should not miss a visit to the Place Rossetti, the heart of Old Town, where the stunning Cathédrale Sainte-Réparate dominates the square, offering a glimpse into the city’s rich religious heritage.

For lunch, La Petite Maison at 11 Rue Saint-François de Paule is highly recommended. This renowned restaurant serves delectable Mediterranean cuisine, with dishes such as Niçoise salad and freshly caught seafood. Yum! Afterward, a visit to the Palais Lascaris will give you a glimpse of the opulent lifestyle of the aristocracy in the 17th century. Definitely a cultural treat for the soul.

Fancy going up a hill and seeing stunning views? The Colline du Château (Castle Hill) is the place to be. The park offers breathtaking views of Nice, the Baie des Anges, and the distant Alps, even though the castle itself no longer stands.
