The Cours Saleya is the southern most part of Old Town (Vieille Ville), just a block in from the sea. On Mondays there is a flea market/antique sale that is lots of fun to wander through and a great place to find a special souvenir. There's glassware and china, silver, linens, artwork, ceramics, great old posters, and lots more. Looking for the forks to use for escargots? There they are. A antique map of Nice? It's a bargain - and you should bargain! Every other day of the week the Cours Saleya is a food market in the mornings until about 12:30 or 1:00 PM and a flower market all day. If you happen to be invited to someone's place for dinner, a bouquet from the Cours Saleya is an ideal present to bring for your hostess.Lining the market are shops and restaurants. Many of our friends think the restaurants are too touristy, but we love to go there for lunch in the sun. There's entertainment - a lady who is like Edith Piaf, a small band playing, or an accordionist serenading you with a French tune. How can you beat that?
