The fruit and vegetable market is perfect for fresh produce and gourmet souvenirs and the flower market deserves a stop for its colors and fragrances. A flea market is held every Monday.
Promenade des Anglais:
The most famous stretch of seafront in Nice is this vast paved promenade, which gets its name from the English expat patrons who paid for it in 1822. It runs for the whole 4km sweep of the Baie des Anges with a dedicated lane for cyclists and skaters.
