Cours Saleya Tips (24)

Cours Saleya

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.

Palais Cais de Pierlas (1782) , Cours Saleya

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.

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.
