6. Cours Saleya Flower Market
If you like to explore local markets, a tour of the flower, vegetable and fruit market of Nice is the most recommended place for you. Here you can enjoy plenty of colorful, exotic and impressive products that you won’t find anywhere else in the city. The supply of products you can find in the market is huge, so take a look at the stores before making any purchases. In order to experience this charming European market atmosphere, it is best that you arrive early (just after 6 am) before breakfast. It is important that you know that other than Mondays – when the market becomes a flea market, and Sunday afternoon, the shops are open from 6 am to 5:30 pm.
7. The Chagall Museum
In the hills above the city of Nice, between shallow pools of water and lavender flowers, olive and thyme trees, stands the Marc Chagall Museum. The museum, which is dedicated to the biblical works of the Russian-born Jewish artist, displays stunning stained-glass windows and paintings with motifs from the Bible, including the story of Jacob’s dream, the binding of Isaac and other paintings highlighted by vivid colors that tell other stories. The collection of these important works was donated by Chagall and his wife to the French state in 1966 and 1972 and since then it has been their home. In addition, the museum hosts changing exhibitions every summer, each time devoted to another great artist from different periods in history.
8. Promenade des Anglais
After an arduous day of shopping trips or historical tours, there’s nothing like finishing your trip on a promenade in front of an enchanting beach filled with blue sea chairs that have become the trademark of the Nice coastline. The promenade is definitely an area where you can travel whenever you choose and you’ll for sure never be alone because the place is bustling 24 hours a day. In addition, you can take a walk along the coastline as close as possible to the water, ride a bike along the promenade or just step out to buy cold ice cream or a warm crepe as only the French know how to make.
