Now that you have seen the city from above, you will have been enchanted by the view of the Old Port. The Vieux Port, also known as Port Lympia, was commissioned by the King of Sardinia, who once ruled over the Province of Nice. There are still ferries from Port Lympia to Sardinia each day, as well as Corsica and other parts of the Mediterranean. You can access the port easily from Parc de la Colline du Château. Simply head back down the lift, and turn left, walking around the base of the hill to find the large opening to the port. There are plenty of places to eat and drink around the port. Locals recommend Bistrot du Port, though it closes at 3pm. Once you have taken a refreshment, you may want to stroll and watch the yachts, cruise ships and shipping containers sail in and out. Alternatively, you may want to head to the home of Napoleon Bonaparte, who lived here in 1974! though you cannot enter, you can see the plaque above the door where he stayed for 9 months on the aptly named Rue Bonaparte.
