This fruit, veggie and flower market makes for a colorful and aromatic experience. Located in Old Town (Vieille Ville) off the Promenade des Anglais as it turns into the Quai des Etats-Unis, the Cours Saleya is open nearly every morning, but an antique market takes the place of the produce on Mondays.

Recent visitors suggested you plan on arriving early (a little past 6 a.m.) to beat the crowds because you’ll have to compete with the masses by the time breakfast is over. Bring small bills to pay the vendors, and you should also carry a small bag to tote anything you buy. Also, keep in mind that the Cours Saleya is free to enter, but the prices for specific fruit, flowers and veggies can be a bit high. If you need a break from shopping, or simply want to people-watch, you'll find cafes and restaurants surrounding the market. The market is open from 6 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. except Mondays, Sunday afternoons and public holidays.

#1 Old Town (Vieille Ville)

Vieille Ville, or Old Town, is a nook of a neighborhood enjoyed by both travelers and locals alike. There are the usual tourist traps, but you can also find some authentic French restaurants and shops, not to mention the Cours Saleya flower and fruit market. 

Past visitors claim that the neighborhood is best experienced in the morning, so you can scour the market. Traipse through in the afternoon to shop, or take a dip at the adjacent beaches. Then in the evening, grab a small bite from a charming restaurant or have a drink in one of the countless bars.
