  • Since its renovation, the place Masséna is very nice, very clean, airy. In addition, there are stone benches to rest and admire the statues perched each on a tall mast and representing each continent. These statues light up the night by regularly changing color. But attention, caution because the tram crosses the place Masséna and tourists do not always realize that the tram arrive when they walk on a ground or rails are embedded in so no edge to point out the danger.

  • Recently restored and polished the Massena square is one of the most beautiful spots of Nice, surrounded by palaces of typical red Magenta and adorned by men now suspended, man-shaped lamps sitting and night lights of many colors, a real show!
