English: cours Saleya market, lunch on a terrace, stroll into small old streets, aperitif and diner to finish the day, this place is, like almost all the old section, the place to go for it.”

“During your visit to Nice, do not miss the Masséna museum, you must visit this sublime museum just next to the Promenade des Anglais. The place is enchanted, the furniture is sumptuous, the interior is mesmerizing. The art evokes all of these by a scenography which combines the graphic arts, the furniture and the objects of this period and more particularly the history. You will be able to see the death mask of Napoleon made by Doctor Arnolt, the diadem of Joséphine in mother-of-pearl.”

It divides the Promenade de Paillon where you will find people of all ages playing in the fountains, lying on the grass reading a book or just people watching. Really beautiful.”
