Notre Dame — Jean Médecin — Rue de Paradis

First take a walk along the Avenue de Notre Dame. You can find some labels at bargain prices for children in places like Bisque-Bisque Rage. At the Basilica, turn south along the Avenue Jean Médecin. This avenue cannot (and should not) be missed. This is where you will find many of the major fast-fashion brands like Zara, H&M, Monoprix, Quick Silver and Virgin Megastore. In addition, there are a number of brasseries where you can take a break. Turn off onto the rue de la Liberté, (this is when the fashion thermometer starts to rise) and end up with the rue de la Liberté. It is hotter than hot here — you should be able to find everything that makes French fashion what it is: Kenzo, Chanel, Mont Blanc. End you visit by going back to the Place Magenta and turn left onto the designer street, the rue Buffa, and visit, for example, Halogène at number 21.


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.
