  • set in the beauty of Nice, this fun fountain is a must see. In the heat of the day this is a nice release. Many tourist play in the water or try to pose for pictures and get shot with water. Fun stop to cool down and have a laugh
  • The newly opened (Nov 2013) Promenade du Paillon adjacent to the wonderfully revamped Place Massena completes a 10 year transformation of the city. Gone is the ugly multi-storey car-park, MacDonald's drive through and bus station which used to obscure the surrounding Belle Epoque buildings and blight the city centre. Now the vista has opened up with a 1.2km ribbon park beginning with a spectacularly and enchanting 3000m2 fountain garden that children and adults frolic through and get COMPLETELY drenched in, to beautiful olive groves peppered with carved wooden climbing frames for young children. It is constantly policed and very family friendly. The change in character of this area is amazing. Surely one of the best urban parks in the world. Bravo, Nice!
  • Best place for romantic walk with sunset n sea view
  • Lovely open area. Seating. Sun trap. Love views. A place to take a moment or two to relax and contemplate life. Enjoy.
  • Lovely green space with nice looking mirror pools in the middle of the city. If you're visiting, it's a must to walk down the length of the park if you have time.
