The “Real Nice”

One of the attractions of the city of Nice lies in its different districts, often located just a few minutes’ walk from the city centre’s public transport hubs and stops. Whether working class, trendy, redolent of history or more modern, each area has its own personality and traders and craftspeople are very much a part of their make-up. Discover these different localities with Nice Shopping.
