Nice Old Town is a must for British tourists

Posted by Greg Throughton

Brits with Spinflo caravan hobs and cookers making the trip to Nice should find time to visit the Old Town, according to the Convention and Visitors Bureau of Nice.

Jessika Bettan, marketing attache at the Convention and Visitors Bureau of Nice, said that the appeal of Nice Old Town is that it has a character and culture that is unique to the rest of France.

"Nice was independent until 1860, so it has its own character, its own language – Nicoise. The Old Town with the little narrow streets, the houses are all painted yellow and red, and with the sunlight shining it really brings everything to life," she said.

Her comments follow research from the Co-operative Travel, which found that British holiday makers are switching back to traditional holidays, with France proving to be one of the most popular destinations.

Ms Bettan added that the markets in the Old Town, for food, vegetables and flowers everyday except Monday and weekly antique fairs, make the area a very lively place to be.
