The original idea behind this photo gallery had much larger scope. I wanted to create a comprehensive photo guide to Vieux Nice (a.k.a Vieille Ville or Old Town Nice). However, the lack of time and proper organization of my effort resulted in something more modest. Still, I believe with the material I have it is possible to convey the atmosphere and environment of the Vieux Nice - area where the city of Nice (Nicaea) was probably founded around 350 BC by Greeks.

We have just finished the first part of the Vieux Nice (Old Nice) tour at the end of Cours Saleya, a vibrant and touristy area with various markets and numerous restaurants and shops. We were moving from west to east towards a rocky hill with ruins of the castle and, nowadays, Parc du Château. Now, we are turning to the left to follow the labyrinth of narrow streets with terracotta color buildings until we reach place Rossetti, the heart of old Nice.

The number of places where to eat in Nice is staggering - something you would expect from the fifth city in France which is also a major tourist center and a leading resort on Côte d'Azur. However, if you are looking for something more than just decent, if you are a gourmand in search of examples of fine Niçois cuisine, you will find that there are surprisingly few restaurants for a city with population of nearly 350 thousand people that may deserve any special attention. Having spent quite some time in search of good restaurants in Nice, here is my recommendation - restaurant Luc Salsedo, which I without hesitation proclaim the best in town.

Le Palais de la Mediterranee was open in 1929 and immediately became Nice architectural monument easily recognizable by the tourists all over the world. After many years in service and almost total demolition in 1978, Le Palais de la Mediterranee was rebuilt in 2004 - a new nine-story hotel was resurrected in a contemporary style and integrated into restored Art Decor facade. If you plan to spend several days in Nice, Le Palais de la Mediterranee offers a good value for the money.
