1. Marché aux Fleurs Cours Saleya
What is it? Under a sea of blue and white striped awnings, this flower market is one of the prettiest, most atmospheric and fragrant in all of France.
Why go? Markets are often the heart of local communities, and in beautiful Old Town, the Marché aux Fleurs is just that. Tour the 30+ stalls, breathe deep the aromas of geraniums, fuchsias and dahlias, quiz experts for horticultural tips and if you’re not in Nice long enough to buy your own flowers, have some sent to friends or family. Closed Mondays and Sunday afternoons.
