Shops & Shopping

St-Rémy Market

When discussing shopping in Provence two things spring to mind. Firstly, posh Boutiques on the Croissette in Cannes or on the Rue Paradis in Nice and highly colourful produce markets which take place weekly in just about every town throughout the Région. The difference is that the boutiques can be found anywhere while the vibrant Provençal markets are quite unique!

Check out my Nice's Best App for more detailed information on shopping in Nice.
