Shops & Shopping


Nice is well known for its designer outlets which tend to be concentrated in the streets leading into Place Masséna along Rue Masséna, Avenue Jean Médicin, Avenue Verdun and Rue Paradis. Both the Galeries Lafayette and Nice Etoile can be found on Médecin at Numbers 6 and 30 respectively.

The best souvenir shopping can be found in the Vieux Ville and Rue de France.

If markets are your thing then you must visit the renowned Cours Saleya at the edge of the Vieux Ville. Here you'll find fresh fruit and vegetables every day except Monday when it becomes a flea market.

Perhaps you're looking for freshly caught fish? Head straight for Place St. François in the Vieux Ville but be sure to get there early in the day!
