The Oldest Part of Nice, France

My best memories of Nice from our visit in 2002 are of the market in the old Italian section of town. Nice was traded back and forth a few times by Italy and France before becoming permanently part of France in 1860. But the old part of town, leading up from the waterfront, was – and still is – very Italian.

Today I went to the “Vielle Ville” (the Old Town) and spent a few hours wandering there.

I was delighted to find that the outdoor market was open on Sunday.
