  • Nice place to meet friends and hang around during the day and at night. Surrounded by fancy shopping centers.  more »
  • Must walk through the park from Place Massena up to Place Garibaldi. This is a huge square with cafe's and shopping around the perimeter. Cant miss it.  more »
  • The place is always full of people, sometimes there are people who play the piano (wonderful), there is also a dance battle... That's great

  • A beautiful picturesque place. A must-see on Nice. The flat bricked ground is perfect for skating/skate boarding. Not sure if that's allowed? There's a park for kids with water shooting from the ground right next to this square. The shopping street just a short walk away.
  • A lovely place to visit, great open space to either sit and relax or just to walk through. Very clean and tidy. Lots of lovely shops to browse as well.
  • One of the main plazas in the city. Always busy, night and day. Nice big shopping malls around this place, all accessible by foot. And the beach is only a few minutes away too
  • I remember the first time seeing this place. So beautiful,such a good center for the Central City of Cote d'Azur. If you're there of course you won't miss it.
  • It is city center and Capitol, just after the big shopping street. Large garden and fountains. Kids play area and shaded seating chairs. Nice place to spend afternoon and evening. Nice decorations for Christmas, market and rides.
