Shopping

French and international brand names predominate in the chic streets of the Carré d'Or, the New Town's main shopping zone. Try rue Alphonse Karr for French-designed women's clothing, or rue Paradis for more mainstream international labels. Additional franchise shopping is available at the multilevel Nice Étoile mall along north–south thoroughfare av Jean Médecin. For small boutique shopping, you're better off browsing elsewhere in town, especially Vieux Nice and Le Port-Garibaldi.
