Wives will enjoy strolling through the vast array of potential purchases. The store is located right on the Massena Place and next to a city tram stop. There are... More

This is a beautiful store with many things to offer. It is laid out very well and has many opportunities to spend a lot of money. However, it is nestled very closely to other shops that I found more affordable.

Galeries Lafayette is a world class department store, with an huge array of goods. This one, as noted elsewhere, is not as big as the flagship store in Paris. But it is all relative. For Nice, this is big!

To walk through Galeries Lafayette - anywhere in France - is an experience for anyone who enjoys browsing without the urge to spend money. Nowadays most of these goods can be bought on the internet - but does this really... More

Expensive place for shopping while there are lots of choices outside. However luxury brands and high quality choices are there, too.

This is a fantastic place to shop if you're looking for luxury brands, infact during sale, their offers are quite irresistible. They also house Pierre Herme and Maison du Chocolat if you crave macarons or chocolates. It is great to even walk around. Located in Place Massena, this is a very convenient store if you're looking to splurge.

The First floor is renovated but the rest of the department store looks like crap, especially the floorings. With the prices they charge they should be able to reinvest some money in the interior.
