Vibrant Nice in Vieille Ville

The Vieille Ville is the bustling heart of old Nice. Lanes shoot this way and that off the main piazza: Cours Saleya. Food markets burst with stacks of blood-red tomatoes and bisque-hued zucchini flowers on summer weekends. The faces of Italian mansions are forever glowering down from above, flaunting their grand Savoy looks for all to see. There are chapels and Baroque churches and sections of the buzzing Promenade des Anglais. You can bag yourself Vieille Ville vacation rentals in this amazing district to really feel the cultural pulse of this glitzy city on the French Riviera.

Things to do

Roaming through history in Vieille Ville

The Vieille Ville is the historic heart of Nice city. It's packed to bursting with enthralling sites that can transport you back to the days when the Dukes of Savoy would have trodden the streets. An elaborate Baroque palace loaded with elegant wall murals and classic furniture? No problem. Check out the gilded Palais Lascaris to the north. The old homes of totemic painters like Henri Matisse? They are there, too. The Modern and Contemporary Art Museum is also near, brimming with masterworks by the likes of Warhol, Jacquet and Yves Klein.

Activities

Markets and tasty treats in Vieille Ville

The warm French summers bring traditional food markets to the cobbles of the Cours Saleya square. You can delve into the menagerie of colorful flower stalls and veg hawkers to wade through stacks of grass-green runner beans and vivid mounds of citrus fruit. On the streets nearby are clutches of traditional Italian gelataria – that's ice-cream parlors to most. Cafe culture is also alive and kicking, meaning there are plenty of spots to simply sit, sip a cappuccino and watch the world roll by.

Weather

French Riviera rays in the Vieille Ville

Nice and the French Riviera as a whole are a real summertime playground. Drawing culture vultures, beach seekers, jet setters, film stars and more, the entire region is at its best when the sun's shining. That is pretty much guaranteed between the months of June and August, which is also when you'll catch the vibrant street markets in the tight-knit lanes of the Vieille Ville. Other people will seek out Vieille Ville vacation rentals at times like May, September or October, to dodge the crowds and leave a few more euros for the shopping.

Natural features

Much-vaunted French landscapes around Vieille Ville

Leave behind the cobbled lanes and the filigreed mansions of the old Savoy and you could soon be strutting up the pebble beaches that line the edge of Nice city. They start with the famous Florida Plage that runs along the Promenade des Anglais but get even more handsome as you weave around the headland to La Reserve or gorgeous Villefranche-sur-Mer – both just a short drive from your Vieille Ville vacation rentals. Inland is where the mountains start. They are heralded by the Prealpes d'Azur Natural Regional Park, where hair-pinning highways wiggle around chiseled limestone peaks and pine forests.
