Antiques Quarter Walk (Self Guided), Nice

At the bottom of Château Hill, between Place Garibaldi and the harbor is one of the most attractive spots in the whole of Nice. But the beautiful views and environment aren't the only draws here, because the port district also encompasses more than 100 antiques and collectibles shops and art galleries. In fact, it is the third largest collection of antiques and collectibles in France. Discover genuine bargains, hidden treasures and valuable artifacts. If you need help in your search, speak to the neighborhood’s many expert dealers.

A wonderful way to experience the area is just to amble from one antique store to the next without any particular plan. But if you do want a definite destination in mind, make the Village Ségurane one of those. This is a two-story miniature village of more than 40 antique stores spread through a small jumble of alleys. Apparently, when Elton John was looking to furnish his villa, this is where he came. No matter what time of year you visit the Village Ségurane, you will always find a rich variety of antiques from numerous eras.

Then go to Rue Catherine Segurane, the stores of which are a particular favorite for those with a love and knowledge of art and history.
