Lots of shops on both sides of this wide pedestrian street. There are also eateries dotted along the way. The tram runs both ways along the mall so if you don't want to walk the entire length, catch a ride.

Shoppers paradise in Nice. Long stretch of road with some of the best brands. Take half a day, take a stroll, grab some coffee in between.

With its wide sidewalks and big name stores Avenue Jean Medecin is the main shopping street in Nice. Starting from Place Massena and running north you will find Galleries Lafayette, Zara, Nice Etoile, and Monoprix to satisfy all your shopping needs within two or three blocks.

From Place Massena with its flagship Galeries Lafayette and Pylones toward the train station with a Sephora, mall (Nice Etoile) and Monoprix, this is a fun shopping experience. The lights for Christmas are different each year, and always wonderful.

An avenue full of every type of shop you can imagine. From upmarket shops to the souvenier style ones... all that you could ever want. It was very busy even in early October, full of tourists. You have all the shops, food and drinks you could ask for. Its worth a wander down even if you dont want to shop.

Always very busy atmosphere, no cars, just some trams going by at times. A lot of shops and places to eat, what can you expect from the main street - it's busy and full of life and tourists. Still, highly recommended to visit at least once!
