Maison Auer

Really good, freshly-processed chocolate that just melts in your mouth is hard to beat. Chocolate with fruits, chocolate with nuts, one piece or how many as you like — this is the place to go to! Maison Auer is one of the oldest chocolate shops in Nice, owned by its founding family since the early 1800s. Rumour has it that it was one of Queen Victoria’s favourite chocolate shops.


Fashion, food and drinks are just not pastimes in France — they are the foundations of life. The range of goods in the shops reflects the French elegance and awareness of trends. There is also a noticeable influence of nearby Italy showing in the smartly dressed people and beautiful shoes. A weekend passes quickly in Nice, and shopping can easily become a full day activity. So if you are in a hurry, it is advisable to concentrate on just a few streets.
