Galeries Lafayette Nice Masséna


Since its opening in 1916, the Galeries Lafayette Nice Masséna store has consistently ranked as the second most visited by overseas tourists among all Galeries Lafayette stores across France. Located right next to a tram station in the historic Place Massena, the heart of Nice, it is conveniently accessible for tourists exploring the city. The store is housed in a chic orange building with blue-green windows, featuring beautiful Turin-style arcade architecture.

Visitors can enjoy shopping across four floors, spanning from the B1 floor to the 4th floor, featuring a diverse selection of 600 brands. Notably, exclusive brands like Gucci, Bottega Veneta, Saint Laurent, Balenciaga and Chloé, can only be found at Galeries Lafayette in Nice.

Home interior, gourmet, and electronics selections can be found on the 4th floor. We highly recommend exploring AM PM, a renowned French brand celebrated for its trendy and sophisticated designs crafted from meticulously selected materials. For instance, their linens are known for their soft touch, and their vases exude elegance.

Additionally, you can find items featuring the iconic blue chairs, symbols of Nice, which make perfect souvenirs.

Bella Bay on the 4th floor is the ideal place for a shopping break. This restaurant is situated right in front of Place Masséna, offering windows with views of the beautiful square and the Mediterranean Sea in the distance. The interior exudes chic and elegance, with many decorations inspired by coral reefs and the works of Matisse, giving you a taste of the French Riviera. Here, you can savor fresh home-cooked dishes and delightful pastries, making it the perfect spot for lunch or brunch.


Galeries Lafayette CAP 3000


Another Galeries Lafayette store is situated within the CAP 3000 shopping center, positioned right by the sea, near the Nice International Airport. CAP 3000 was awarded the title of "Best shopping center" by MIPIM (the international market for property professionals) in 2022, making it a convenient shopping destination for overseas tourists. This expansive 15,000m² shopping center boasts over 500 brands.

A larger selection of Men & Maison


The Galeries Lafayette CAP 3000 store features two floors. On the ground floor, you can explore offerings in kids' items, home interiors, and electronics. The first floor houses selections for men, women, beauty products, and a café.

Notably, this store boasts an extensive selection of men's and home interior items, surpassing the offerings of the Galeries Lafayette Nice Massena store. This makes it a perfect destination, especially for those seeking men's fashion and interior decor. In the men's department, you can indulge in shopping for globally recognized premium brands like POLO Ralph Lauren, as well as original Galeries Lafayette brands that offer the latest trends with a focus on quality and affordability.
