Avenue Jean Medecin, Nice

3.7
#2 of 25 in Shopping in Nice
If shopping is on your agenda, consider a walk along Avenue Jean Medecin in the center of Nice. The city's main shopping street--called The Avenue by locals--lies in the St.-Michel Valley between Place Masséna and Pont-Neuf. The southern part of the street has a touristy feel, while the northern half has an artsy, neighborhood vibe. Stop in some of the many shops and movie theaters while also admiring the architectural features of the Belle Époque Riviera Building and Galeries Lafayette, among others.
