This analysis of the wheelchair accessibility of Old Town in Nice, France was performed in Summer 2022.
Old Town is exactly as it sounds–a few pedestrian-only blocks of historic tenement houses and churches, and even a large farmers market. Old Town is just south of Castle Hill, and can be accessed from the Promenade. The streets are level and pretty smooth. There is a small curb between the sidewalks and the pedestrian-only road, but there are frequent and smooth curb cuts.
Wheelchair accessibility was not an issue, and we enjoyed Old Town…especially the freshly pressed juice on a scorching day.
We also explored some of the churches in Old Town. They had wheelchair accessible entrances, albeit a little tight at times.
The Fontaine du Soleil, light rail, shopping, and promenades are only a short and easy walk/scoot from Old Town shopping.
