Price & Hours
- 0.0Food Scene
For a free retreat from the city and a breath of fresh air, travelers recommend taking a hike in Parc du Mont Boron (located in east Nice). With about 7 miles of hiking trails, you can work up quite a sweat and perhaps burn off some calories from the previous evening's dinner. Climb to the top for the prettiest panoramas. And if you're a history buff, you might enjoy seeing the nearby military fort on Mont Alban. You'll see both tourists and locals enjoying the park daily.
Despite its paved trails, Parc du Mont Boron has no food, shops or toilets. Recent visitors suggest packing plenty of food and water before you leave for the park. Jump on bus No. 14 from Square Daudet to reach Mont Boron, or simply call a taxi or Uber. There is also free parking at the park.

#1 Old Town (Vieille Ville)
Vieille Ville, or Old Town, is a nook of a neighborhood enjoyed by both travelers and locals alike. There are the usual tourist traps, but you can also find some authentic French restaurants and shops, not to mention the Cours Saleya flower and fruit market.
Past visitors claim that the neighborhood is best experienced in the morning, so you can scour the market. Traipse through in the afternoon to shop, or take a dip at the adjacent beaches. Then in the evening, grab a small bite from a charming restaurant or have a drink in one of the countless bars.
