Attractive part of Nice, in the Old Town, filled with colourful stalls and lined with pleasant cafe terraces and restaurants. There's a flower, fruit and vegetable and local produce market Tuesday to Sunday and an 'antiques' market on Mondays. A nice place to come and have something to eat in the evening aswell although I think prices might be pushed up slightly higher due to the tourist location.
The fresh market along the Cours Saleya is amazing!! You can vind anything you are looking for, from fresh fruit and vegetables to spices.. and even some live poultry!!!
Worth the visit simply for the experience!
At the far end of the Cours Saleya, in the Place Charles Felix, stands the imposing large yellow-ochre house No1 The Palais Cais de Pierlas.
Dating back to 1782 in Nice's Italianate history, this building finds its way into a thousand tourist photgraphs a day.
For many years the third floor was home to the painter Matisse, whose paintings of the Baie des Anges were of the view from his window there.
The building looks in disrepair and is not open to the public. However the cafe- restaurants either side are, and they make a welcome rest for a cofee or a beer. A seat here offers you one of the finest people-watching spots in all Nice.
This lively market square operates as a flower, fish, and produce market Tuesday through Sunday until noon. On Mondays it is an antique market. Full of color, spirit, and the wonderful aroma of exotic spices, a walk through the stalls will have you buying up in no time!
The Cours Saleya has a daily flower market and a food market in the mornings and on Mondays a flea market, the Marché a la Brocante et Antiquités. Another authentic market can be found most mornings along the Ave. Malaussena; the fish market is at Saint-François Square.
One side of the COURS SALEYA is lined by seafood restaurants, the other one - by terrace cafés, lovely old buildings and the grand Prefecture. You have to come here in the evening to see how it changes.
There is one very pleasant man in the Cours Saleya market who sells marzipan in a variety of shapes and sizes, all beautifully made and coloured - give it a try !!
A stroll thru the Cours Saleya is a pleasure for all your senses. The sights, smells, tastes that await you are endless. A great way to introduce yourself to Old Nice.
Le Cours Saleya has an open air flower and food market every morning except on Mondays when there is an antique market.
On Cours Saleya from Tuesday to Sunday, there is a flower market and a food market.
There are a number of stalls selling the local speciality - fruits glaces (glazed or candied fruits).
It's a flower and fruit market in Le Vieux Nice. It's so colorfull and looks so joyfull, you really can't miss it.
