Big shopping area. Very nice and right near Place Messina and the beaches. Nice area to visit and walk around wish I gave myself time to do some shopping.

While, I loved the Place Massena, the main drag with all of the shops was just average for me. They have plenty of stores but nothing unique. Any store you see here, you can see in other European cities. Worth seeing but I wasn't wowed by it. There is a tram that goes through the street which is convienent.

Wide pedestrian street boasts a wide assortment of shops for all ages and budgets. Plenty of places to grab a bite or leisurely relax and people watch. A large shopping mall and department store are located on the BLVD as well but lacked much of the charm that the boutiques had. Washrooms available in the shopping mall (Les Etoiles) on... More

This street has everything! Huge shopping mall. Tram network. Places to eat and drink. It's just lacking some prettiness about it. Worth an afternoon of your time. Great parking.

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.

The main shopping place of Nice, offers a multitude of shopping places (Nice Étoile, Galeries Lafayette), cafés, restaurants. The street is large, and the trams runs over it, making it a conveniente place to go through from place to place

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. The tram runs down Jean Medecin but otherwise it is free of traffic so... More

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.
