This central square in the older part of Nice has beautiful buildings and statues - also some interesting modern art. The juxtaposition of the two makes for some interesting photos.

Located in the heart of Nice, it's a must passage when visiting Nice as it connects the northern and west boroughs to the Old Nice. The quartier is place to shops. Surrounding the Place Masséna are the Coulée Verte attractions, urban water parks and places for chillout. At night, Buddhas around the Place are illuminated.

Great square for people watching in the heart of the city, just in between the lovely gardens and fountains on the Promenade des Arts. Especially the fountains are great for little children!

Italian or french - the history goes way back, and this square (huge) has it all! Amazing size, busy, impressive buildings, trams, parks and trees and flowers and cloise to the old town. The small parks going up to the square are playground for children and their parents, since a lot of small fontaines (almost small geysers) are sprinkling water... More

A night there are a number of statues that light up, that create a lovely atsmosphere, there is also a park area with water fountains that make great photos! Great for shopping, near to the old town and a visit to the flower market and all the restaruants. Its also the place we caught our tram which only costs 1.5euros

This place is more beautiful than Garibaldi which is close and is one big place too. The buildings around it are beautiful and their colors too. The fountain is a good place for photos in the city with buildings in the back. Nice place to take a break from walking

This is a fabulous place, bordered by stately buildings. Well lit by night. This is a great place to look at, and take part, in the passing parade, entirely free from traffic. There are amazing statues on high pedestals - also lit. On the night we were there, there were buskers and street performers - a really festive atmosphere. Must... More
