Notre-Dame-Jean-Médecin-rue de Paradis

First take a walk along the avenue de Notre Dame. You can find some labels at bargain prices for children in places like Bisque-Bisque Rage! At the Basilica, turn south along the avenue Jean-Médecin. This avenue cannot (and should not) be missed. This is where you will find many of the major brands like Zara - Spain’s answer to H&M, Monoprix, Quick Silver and Virgin Megastore. In addition, there are a number of brasseries where you can take a break. Turn off onto the rue de la Liberté, (this is when the fashion thermometer starts to rise) and end up with the rue de la Liberté. This could be called Nirvana. It is hotter than hot here – you should be able to find everything that makes French fashion what it is - Kenzo, Chanel, Mont Blanc… End by going back to the Place Magenta and turn left onto the designer street, the rue Buffa, and visit, for example, Halogène at number 21.

Rue St-François de Paule-Préfecturerue

At rue St-François de Paule, you can revel in tasting Alziari’s world-famous olive oil. Or why not enjoy the fragrance of Bruno, the truffle king’s black fungi? Not to mention the sweets at Maison Auers! Take a look at Nice’s pulsing heart, the ProvProvençal- scented flower market (marché aux Fleurs), then turn eastwards along the rue de la Préfecture. Don’t miss either the Antic Boutik or one of the other stylish fashion shops (Asso, Habit Magique). If the Cours Saleya is Nice’s heart, its main artery is the rue Droite. Walk along it. Look in on some of the many art galleries and souvenir shops, or stop and relax in a café.
