Carrefour Supermarkets in Nice

by lydia66

We will be renting an apartment in Nice and would like to know how to get to the large Carrefour by public transport from Central Nice. Also, are there other supermarkets in the centre that are reasonably priced?

Thank you for your reply, it will be very helpful for grocery shopping.

We're also going to Nice this summer, and the most central Carrefour hypermarket I've found is in the Centre TNL shopping centre. It's just a few stops with the tram to 'Palais des Exposition' stop, so it's much easier to reach than the one in Centre Lingostiere.

This how to get to Centre TNL according to their website:

...and here is a public transport map with the tram line:

... and be careful with the map on www.carrefour.fr/trouver, as it's not really accurate! :)

It shows Centre cial Lingostiere being in central Nice, however it's not (as you can see on their website).

Thanks for the feedback, I'll remember that when we go to Nice. :)

There is a Monoprix near the Modern Art Museum that we have used. It's not the best Monoprix we've been in, but we did get all we needed. If you are near, it will save some traveling. You can get fresh veggies at the street market in Cours Saleya. It is fun and useful.

Have you figured it out? There's a little train that runs through Nice that goes right there. I've never taken it, but I've seen the stops. Seems to be the easiest way.

Good luck,

If you are referring to the Little Tourist Train, it is not a hop-on hop-off train. They take you to the chateau, give you 15 minutes for photos and then take you back to the Promenade des Anglais. You do tour the Cours Saleya and around a bit but you stay on the train except at the chateau.

Public buses, on the other hand, allow you to alight and shop. 8^)

Re: Carrefour Supermarkets in Nice

Reading this again, I'm wondering if you are referring to the new tram that runs around town. That would be a definite (and fun) option if it goes to the supermarket. We haven't tried it yet but I've got photos of it. They look super!

Do you have a web site for the tram stops? That would be helpful to the OP.

Re: Carrefour Supermarkets in Nice

by Beausoleil

Thank you Pedro. A very helpful web site. It gives route, hours, cost. It isn't in English that I could find but if the OP has Windows7, a window appears that offers to translate. I clicked it to see what would happen and got side-by-side French in one window and English in another. This is good because you can compare them and see where the weird translations are. ;^)

We have something similar in Sacramento called the Light Rail. I wish more cities would use trams. They are useful and truly fun.

Pedro, the automobile industry could use you for a spokesman. LOL

We like our car too but not in cities!

Travel Tips for Nice

Nice

by barryg23

Our trip to France was a reward for finishing final exams and a difficult year of study. I remember, when walking along the Promenade one night, thinking how good it felt to be so far away from the exams and all those pressures.

The first week in France had been tiring as we had travelled and walked a lot. By the time we got to Nice, we were ver much in 'relax-mode' and looking forward to spending our days at the beach. And that's more or less what we did...

visit another medieval resort...

by Krystynn

visit another medieval resort town cum fishing port along the French Riviera - ANTIBES, located just 11 kilometers away from ritzy CANNES. Did you know that ANTIBES officially forms one town with the newer JUAN-LES-PINS located slightly to the south? For the younger cost-conscious crowd who's always on the look out for a great place to party (read: Nightlife) at a reasonable cost, this is THE place for you! You must also check out the exciting Avenue de l'Amiral-Grasse which runs along the seafront from the harbor to the marketplace. A colorful sight on most mornings... Hey, don't just believe every word I write, do check it out for yourself too! Why, visiting the enthralling CHATEAU GRIMALDI, of course. Built in the 12th century by the ruling family of Monaco and extensively rebuilt in the 16th century, the only way you can reach this place is via the steps near the CHURCH OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION. Then, tear yourself away from the sunbaked terrace overlooking the sea to go inside the lovely MUSEE PICASSO. This museum houses more than 300 works of Picasso. And Picasso was also a regular fixture at this chateau during his happiest and most hyper-energetic moments. So, I'm pretty sure you'd enjoy this lively town of ANTIBES. Don't we all?

Protesting

by NiceLife

The French love protesting. The tradition goes back to the French Revolution - when the monarchy was overthrown and a lot of people had their heads separated from the rest of them.

If its American to sue, then its French to protest. "En greve, toujours en greve".Hardly a week goes by without a "greve" "(strike action) or a protest march. Everyone joins in, placards come out. The next day everything is back to normal.

The railways and buses are particularly prone to disruption by these one-day inactions, due to strong membership of the CGT - the communist trade union. Strange ten years on beyond the collapse of communism in the East the French variety goes blithely on as though nothing had happened. Red flags, clenched fist, Che Guevara T-shirts. Observers have said France is the only example in existence of a successful communist state.

You may think as a visitor this doesn't affect you, however be warned, it is not uncommon for transport to be disrupted - air traffic controllers are known to come out in sympathy with any greivance. During the recent national demonstrations against the "CPE" first job contract, students invaded an airport runway, and the police would do nothing to remove them, so bang went all the flights. Its a right to protest.

Mostly its the Left that do the protesting, though not always. American visitors of a sensitive disposition should be warned the French Left have very slightly anti-American leanings. Supporters of President Bush who stumble on such protests might want to avert their eyes.

Visit the Home of Picasso

by chagi1

Going From Nice towards Cannes is the beautiful city of Antibes!
This beautiful city was the home of the great Picasso!! It houses a Picasso museum in his memory!!
Just a side note.. the musem closes for about an hour around noon.. just keep that in mind!

Chemin de Fer de Provence - the Train des Pignes

by NiceLife

An interesting excursion from Nice is to catch the narrow guage railway train that runs the Route Napoleon from Nice to Digne. The starting station is a few streets north of the Gare SNCF. The full journey to Digne is over three hours each way, threading through magnificent gorges cut by the river Var, ultimately through the lavander fields high up in true Provence.

In high summer the diesel train swaps over to a real steam train for the second half of the journey to Digne itself. The name Train des Pignes means Train of the Pinecones.

Many visitors settle for half the trip, to the medieval village of Entrevaux, where an hour and a half stopover allows time to wander this fascinating historical little place, not unlike St Paul de Vence but without the tourists.

Catch the 9.00 train out of Nice and the around 12.00 train running back.- cost around 12 Euro. But leave plenty of time to buy your ticket - everyone in the queue will be quizzing the exasperated desk clerk in English about "can we do this" and "can we do that" and "do you take American Express"?
