flower market and buildings in nice france

Spend a morning at Cours Saleya market

This quintessentially French market opens daily, although on Mondays it sells furniture and trinkets rather than its usual food. Stocking up on groceries is a wonderful way to experience the real Nice and, as an added bonus, you’ll be shopping alongside the locals. The true stars of this market, though, are the flowers.

Heady scents of dahlias, fuchsias and geraniums float into the air from the colourful stalls run by growers and nurseries. Food traders tend to start and finish early, but the flower sellers stay into the early evening.

Explore the old town

Stroll through winding streets filled with the aroma of baking, patisseries and warm coffee in Nice’s colourful Old Town.

Visit the Cathedral of St Reparata, with its stunning edifice decorated in multi-colours. Nice Cathedral, meanwhile, can be found in the charming Place Rossetti.

From there, discover some of the former mansions and regal retreats of Nice’s rich and famous at regal buildings including the 17th century Lascaris Palace.
