Wanna spare 0.50?? Go to "Quick" (Belgian version of McDonald's). There is one at 41, Avenue Jean Medecin and another one on the Pedestrian zone (on the corner of Rue Halevy and Rue de France - the toilet is upstairs).

If you need to go to the loo during lunch time, try going to "Hippopotamus" restaurant on 16, Avenue Felix Faure (Massena square). It usually gets so crowded that no one will even notice you. The loo is downstairs.

If you are in the city center (ie, around Avenue Jean Medecin), you will find toilets (They are no longer free, so you'll need 0.50 ? to access them) on the last floor of Nice Etoile Shopping Mall . They are next to Nature & Decouvertes shop.

If you are desperate, you may try...

On Avenue Jean Medecin, but towards Place Massena, you can find toilets at Galeries Lafayette (no longer free - if you need coins, there's a change machine inside), they are on the third floor, close to the stairs. Notice: it's a mixed WC with no windows, so they usually smell bad. I would rather go to the ones at Nice Etoile Shopping Mall.

At Fnac? *I think* it is on the third floor, next to the "Manga" section. You need to insert 0,50 ? to unlock the door that will lead you to the WC's. I don't think they clean them that often, so it's a rip-off!

Never tried them, but you may want or need to use them...

Mc Donald's WC's? You need to buy something there, at least the one close to the train station works like that. On the payment ticket, there is a number code (the numbers after the words CODE WC) you have to type in order to open the door that leads to the WC.

The public 'toilettes' on the streets (except it's urgent... *I think* it's 0,30 Euros).
