Flower market in Nice

The flower market in Nice is one of the most beautiful markets in France. It is said that the Russian Tsar, Nicholas II was so inspired by the flower market that he decided to create one in Saint Petersburg.


Located in the Old Port, it sells flowers, but also delicious local fruits and vegetables. It is a perfect market to wander through aisles, take photographs of colourful displays, and try local products - don't be shy to ask for samples of French cheeses ! Our advice is to get there on Saturday, and get everything for a nice picnic. Don't forget the rosé !


Opening hours: Tuesday to Saturday, 06.00  - 17.30, Sunday, 06.00 - 13.30
