Only one street back from the seafront, Cours Saleya is a mainly-pedestrianized street/square which hosts a daily market. It is split between its famous flower market selling bucketfuls of blooms in the western half, and a magnificent food market at the eastern end, with long trestle tables displaying exotic spices, shiny fruit and veg, pastries, fruits glacés (glazed or candied fruits such as figs, ginger, tangerine and pears) and more. On Mondays from 6am to 6pm, Cours Saleya also hosts an antiques market.
Lined by restaurants and cafes, it is the perfect place for breakfast, to sip coffee and people-watch, or for after dark, when the market is closed and the outdoor seating from the restaurants expands to fill the square.
It was wonderful
A great way to see Nice and what the city has to offer
So much to do so little time. I loved every moment of being on the bus the commentary. I will definitley be visiting Paris again and the Hop-on-hop-off tour bus will be my first booking
Right in the heart of old Nice and only one street back from the seafront Quai des Etats-Unis, it is impossible not to stumble across the Cours Saleya in any walk around Nice.
