The Galaries was nice but not as good as Paris branch. In Paris you will find much more options and varieties of brands.

After going to the real Galeries Lafayette in Paris this version was surprisingly small. But the staff here was so nice, helpful and friendly. I felt I was warmly welcome here. A good collection of everything you need: cosmetics, clothes and more. Nice is a perfect place and Galeries Lafayette is open every day.

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

Mini version of the huge one in Paris. Variety of brands from the reasonable too the pricey. Good deals to find during sales. Always worth a visit.
