A very busy square, lots of restaurants, cafes and bars down Rue Massena and surrounding streets, in the other direction (east) is access to the old town which is a great place to wander around, or south to the Promenade des Anglais.

The tram passes through it, so mind the rails and the warnings at crossings. I enjoyed walking through it any time of day... More

Surrounded by lovely buildings, great access to the tram network, the local restaurants, touristy/souvenir shops and the beach, as well as the beautiful gardens, fountains and community areas of the Jardins du Paillon.
