Marché aux livres anciens et d'ocassion
Listen up, literature lovers: you have arrived at your unmissable destination.
Interesting bibliographical relics
Literature lovers have a must-visit in this market during their trip round Nice. The marché aux livres anciens is famous in the city for two aspects: on the one hand, there are some bibliographic gems displayed on the stalls where you'll find original works, limited editions and discontinued volumes that are hard to find in other places; and on the other hand, due to the unmistakable atmosphere that you take in here, which is full of nostalgia and with a smell of used paper that good readers will be quick to recognise. If you like to collect books, you've come to the right place. This market is held every first and third Saturday of every month in the heart of the city, and on the beautiful square of Place du Palais de Justice which is surrounded by Renaissance buildings. The market is set up around 7 o'clock in the morning, and it's a good idea to head along here early, so that you can fully enjoy it.
