The streets of the Old Town (Vieille Ville) in Nice, France are winding, very narrow and full of historic charm. Because the streets are so narrow they are quite dark and noise can be a problem during the busy tourist season.The houses and shops in the Old Town streets date back to medieval times, the architecture is eclectic - Baroque, Provencal and Genoese. Along the Rue de la Prefecture and Rue du Point-Vieux in Nice, Provence some of the little shops have been restored and although the buildings are narrow they have high ceilings giving them a feeling of spaciousness.The narrow streets meander through the Old Town of Nice in France and visitors should take time to explore all the nooks and crannies. Visit the many little shops and stop for refreshments in the quaint little cafes. To get an overall look at the streets in Old Town one can climb Le Chateau hill. From here the view of the Old Town of Nice and the Mediterranean Sea is spectacular.Narrow streets in the Old Town of Nice, Provence, Cote d'Azur, France, Europe.
