The Old Nice is the ancient heart of the city. It is made up of small, often curved streets, lined with old, well-maintained, Italian-style buildings. It is an area that is not pedestrian but monopolized by pedestrians in the alleys.
There are many old or quality shops (gastronomic, local products). The Old Nice shelters the Nice inhabitants and the tourists of passage. It is thus a place not to be missed but also very animated. This can be pleasant during the day. It is the same in the evening. Streetcar and buses are all around.

Carré d’or, rue de France (24)
The Carré d’or neighborhood is, as its name implies, a highly sought-after and chic neighborhood, without being posh. Consisting of quality housing and Art Deco, Belle Epoque style, it borders the Prom’, the famous Promenade des Anglais. A chic neighborhood, but not necessarily stuffy, it is very lively without being saturated, very varied and still authentic, cosmopolitan but with a beautiful personality. Close to everything, the quality of life remains an asset of this district. Buses and streetcars serve it very favorably but most visits benefit from being done on foot.

The Gambetta district is an area of contrast, between stylish housing and more popular buildings. Indeed, between Consulate, Thiers central station, public garden, local shops, it is served by buses and streetcar. But of course, the North is further from the center and the Promenade des Anglais than the South of the district.

The Baumettes neighborhood stretches along the sides of a hill. The top of the neighborhood is very residential, composed of villas and quality housing. On the other hand, the south of the district, towards Magnan, is a bit more lively, better equipped with shops, although quiet and close to the Promenade des Anglais.
