Cours Saleya

Cours SaleyaOne of Nice’s greatest pleasures is wandering the outdoor markets along the Cours Saleya. Blooms of every colour and shape burst to life. Row after row of spices beckon. There are grapes the size of golf balls and olives glimmering in the sun. Fresh fish are stacked in icy display cases.

Besides the vendors under tents, there are several shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants along the sides. Buy hats, tableware, tacky souvenirs or a cafe au lait.

The Cours Saleya is situated between Vieux Nice (Old Town) and the Quai des Etats Unis (continuation of the Promenade des Anglais). Bustling any day of the week, this one can’t be missed. It serves as a flower and produce market every day but Mondays, when it becomes an antiques market. On summertime evenings, there is an arts and crafts market.

The Cours Saleya can be a delightful place for dining al fresco, provided you remember that it is a tourist area and you are there more for the ambience than the quality of the food!
