  • A great and lively historic square in Nice and also happens to be the main square of the city. It practically divides the old town and modern one. For shoppers there are many stores you can visit and is close to the beach as well. Restaurants, cafe, fountain park, live street performance, baroque statues, you name it and its here. Would definitely recommend.
  • Beautiful square in Nice. Lots to see and a great spot for people watching. The trams all go through here and good bus links too. Many good shops in the area and the cafes, although geared for tourists are ok. Close to the old town and the promenade. The water features are a great touch too on a hot day!
  • Very nice spot. It's very central and a beautiful vieuw on the park and the work of art there. Also the shopping centers are near.
  • Nice is a wonderful place to visit. Wish I could have stayed there longer than two days. Beach with pebbles on it is somewhat unreal to me being used to sandy beaches. Many places with interesting history attached to it.
  • Big open space with lots of places to eat with seating outside. No cars along here but the local tram does pass through here. There are cool lit up monuments that act as street lights. There are two gardens either side. Lots of palm trees. Water fountain display is beautifully lit up at night. Very close to the old town.
