Place des Lices Market

Do not miss the popular open-air market at the Place des Lices, open on Tuesday and Saturday mornings. It often attracts more than 100 stalls selling local delicacies and craft items.


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.
