As always: having breakfast in Nice

If you fly in the morning at Nice, it is recommended to dive into the city. Via the Boulevard les Anglais you drive to the old center. We do park usually the car in the garage under the market in the old center. The market is an experience. Almost every day there is a different market: flowers, brocante or delicious regional vegetables and other regional products. If you want to know more: read this blog from the rebel kitchen about what can be experienced around the market. We also like breakfast at the corner of the market at Le Coin Quotidien. In fact, if we have the early flight, it we always go here have a pancake and a croissant.

Vieux Nice

The market is in the oldest part of Nice. Under the arches you walk straight to the boulevard. The other way you go into the city. The old part is a jumble of winding streets with all kinds of shops. It is certainly touristy, without losing its charm. Nice restaurants and shops with local products alternate. No less than 3 large churches have been squeezed between the houses. And the view when you climb all the way up is spectacular. If you walk from Le Coin Quotidien in the direction of l'Opéra, you come to our favorite olive oil shop of the Alzerie family and you buy the most amazing pickled fruit in a shop that has the original 19th century interior.

Place Masséna

Vieux Nice is located between the water and the 19th century part of Nice. It is, as it were, separated by a park. The park has recently been renovated. It is always wonderful to settle here and watch the children playing. The park is adjacent to Place Masséna, where you will find the La Fayette department store and the Nespresso shop. Almost all major shopping streets come out on this square.


Nice is the second museum city in France with no less than 6 major museums. Below you will find an overview of the museums, with a link to their own website.

Our favorite is the beautifully designed museum MamacMamac for modern art, the famous Matisse Museumthe museum of fine arts of which only the historical museum building is worth a visit, the archaeological museum where you can see everything about the Roman history of Nicea, the Palais Lascariswith it's beautiful rococo paintings of old Nice and of course the Chagall Museum with constantly changing exhibitions about Chagall and his contemporaries.
