  • I love walking around this square. You can spend hours looking at the people passing by while having a drink or a small bite in one of the coffee places.
  • Best place to while away time from just before sunset till late evening.
  • The ancient traditional square of Nice, it has been a little bit too modernized but it's a beautiful place to see . There are the well conservated ancient buildings of typical architecture. They so restored the old great fountain with greek statues.
  • A great location and a cool modern room. I actually didn't expect it to be this nice. A wonderful basket of breads and coffee in the morning made it a fantastic experience.
  • Beautiful square at the intersection of new civil development and old world charm.
