Specialty Shops near Nice Opera

Near Cours Saleya and across from and within the same block of the Nice Opera on Rue St-François de Paule, these four specialty shops are historically Nice for nice gift ideas – whether for someone else or for yourself, for the holidays or all year ’round!

A candy/chocolate shop, established in 1820, where Queen Victoria shopped for candied fruits. I also love to visit this shop to look at the retro tile flooring and the lovely display furniture, not to mention the gold covered chocolates in the rear of the store.

Specializing in a variety of olive oils, flavored vinegars, olives, and other cooking delicacies, this shop is inviting and client-service oriented.

Soaps, candles, diffusers, and fragrant home items can be found in this charming shop.

Along with the December Christmas market in Place Massena, the shopping center of Nice Etoile, and the many small art studios in Old Nice, there is something to be had to suit everyone’s tastes,or to simply faire du leche-vitrine (window shop)!

    I enjoy eating at L’Olivier every time I visit Nice. The eggplant appetizer and the rabbit with pasta are my two favorite dishes. I have even been known to bring back bottles of local olive oil in my suitcase. Most times of the year reservations are needed.

    • Merci, Laurie for your comment on the l’Olivier restaurant in Nice; the boutique shop sells luscious olive oils, vinegars and other specialties to take back in your suitcase next time.

    AUER is very interesting with how old it was, and all the other descriptions you added.
