Vieux Nice : a 100% “Nissarde” experience.
Head for Cours Saleya, at the entrance to the old town, to start your Nicois escapade on the right foot. You’ll immediately plunge into the atmosphere as you walk up and down the stalls of the famous Marché aux Fleurs de Nice (Nice Flower Market) which is listed as an exceptional French market. Watch out, the good mood is catching here: Christine, Laurent and all the shopkeepers on the square have great pleasure in selling their bunches of flowers from Tuesday to Sunday under the multicoloured striped tents it is so famous for. After a coffee break behind one of the coloured facades, wander along the paved streets: a succession of souvenir shops, local products, bars and restaurants offer you a digest of everything you mustn’t miss. For those of you love snacks, we suggest a pan bagnat and a slice of socca to enjoy on a sunny little square.
