Discovering the Old Nice

Treat yourself with an unforgettable stay at Palais de la Méditerranée, our charming hotel located close to the Old Nice. Unveil the beauty of a coastal city which succeeded at keeping its authenticity.

Being the cradle of tourism on the Côte d’Azur, Nice gives much importance to the protection and enhancement of its rich heritage of art and architecture.

The winding streets of the old town of Nice, which blends centuries of life by the seaside, evocate the tranquillity of the Mediterranean life. Meet the inhabitants of the Old Nice and discover warm and welcoming people. The port, where yachts, sailing boats and fishermen boats anchor, is an invitation to encounter locals and for the imagination to travel. Visit the day markets of the “Cours Saleya”: the flower market, with fruits and vegetables offering enchantment for all 5 senses, and the flea market held there all year round, a peddlers’ paradise. Every Saturday, the weekly market stalls take over the central square of the Old Nice, which comes alive with stallholders’ animated voices.

Allow yourself to be amazed by the numerous chapels and religious monuments in Old Nice, architectural marvels that have shaped the city and its history: the Sainte-Réparate cathedral, the Gesù church, the chapel of the Saint Suaire and the alter at the statue of Notre Dame du Malonat all invite one to reverent contemplation.

During your visit, take the time to have lunch in a typical restaurant of the Old Nice where you will be able to taste Mediterranean cooking in a friendly and cosy atmosphere.

Finally, walk back to our luxury seaside hotel where you will rest of a day full of pleasant memories.
