Place Garibaldi, Nice

4.1
#2 of 16 in Historic Sites in Nice
A monumental example of Baroque architecture, Place Garibaldi spreads across the area between the old town and the town center, lined by Roman-style buildings. This spacious square was designed by Antoine Spinelli, who also worked on the beautiful Chapelle du Saint-Sépulcre, which is visible from the square. Visit the cafes and try the excellent local seafood. From here, take a tour of the harbor of Vieux-Nice, the municipal theater, or the Modern Art Museum, which are all in walking distance.

    The square is a good place to look for a restaurant, bar etc... very nice and has a very nice, quiet but cheerful atmosphere. (Even frozen) dining options are varied and good!

    Beautiful place... in 5 minutes from the port of Nice. At night everything is animated... Beautiful lights. Restaurant and bar surround it.

    The place Garibaldi, in tribute to the general and Italian patriot Giuseppe Garibaldi, who United the Italy, is a beautiful square where you will find Italian architecture, the famous arches found in the Italian cities and where it's good to stroll, shopper cool, in the shadow of the Sun in August. The restaurants surrounding will serve you some excellent seafood for the reader, as well as the good cuisine of Nice. Tram line 1 stop you at the stop of the same name. You are also a stone's throw from the old town and the port.
