About the neighbourhood
The Port dates back to the middle of the 18th century, nestled below the hilltop ruins of an ancient Chateau the port is surrounded by rows of bright coloured buildings, all looking out on a vibrant marina, home to humble fishing boats and jaw dropping super yachts. Around the Port are some great places to eat, ranging from cafes to notable restaurants.

A short walk from the port, Nice has a bustling Old Town, a maze of narrow shaded streets where locals and tourists are drawn to the diverse shops and restaurants. Between the sea and the Old Town is the Cours Saleya, a colourful fruit and flower market, six days a week, on a Monday it is an antiques market.

For those who like a stroll there are walks along the rugged rocks to Cap de Nice, in the other direction the Promenade des Anglai...
Getting around
As well as the day cruises, there are buses from the top of the port to take you to the nearby towns of Villefranche, Beaulieu, St.Jean Cap Ferrat and further afield to Monaco.

There are trains to all these towns as well as to Antibes and Cannes from Nice Riquier train station which is a 20 minute walk from the apartment.

The Old town is a 15-20 minute walk from the apartment, either along the sea front and the Promenade des Angais or along the back of the port past the Antiques quarter and Place Garibaldi with lovely shops, cafes and restaurants.
