Shops all the way! Great to walk the length of it which ultimately connects to the promenade. The best part is it’s pedestrianised except the Trams which aren’t disturbing.

Plenty of shops and restaurants, main avenue to get to most places off the main drag. One point when we were there, the dog poo was everywhere, be aware of where you're walking!

We stayed in a hotel just off this vibrant shopping street. The architecture is pleasing and the shops numerous and varied. It was fun sitting at one of the cafes on the sidewalk enjoying a good coffee watching the passing parade of locals and tourists.

I was expecting unique French fashion shopping however it was nothing spectacular. I had a good walk though alone the avenue. I would not spend much time there again.

Several actually decent cafes and bistros with outdoor seating are there and a good place for people watching. There was a rolling piano that was sort of peaceful and zen-like. I suppose it is with good reason but the military presence is kind of counter...More

Avenue Jean Médecin is one of the main shopping streets in Nice. Something for everyone either walk it or take a tram which run regularly along the avenue. Also plenty of cafes and restaurants to enjoy.

There is usually a 'Casino' nearby in Nice - small grocery stores dotted around. Otherwise, near the front, there are kiosks or small tourist shops that generally have those things available. Enjoy!

The tram stop is less than 3 mins walk from train station. You can catch it all the way to Lafayette. The stop you need is Massena. From Massena you cross the square, around or through the park to get to the old town. But... More
