This square has loads of large cafes/ bars offering a range of types of food. Cafe de Turin, the famous seafood restaurant, is located in one corner. Tramway passes through the square, as do roads to the port. The area is currently under reconstruction for the new tram line, but still worth a visit. Antiques/ bric a brac stalls on... More

Superb newly renovated 'square' Place Garibaldi is the heart of Nice. Much of Nice branches off from here: the dept stores, old Town, the new parks featuring works of art, & the big water play zone for the kids.

Had dinner at Place Garibaldi on our first night and the ambiance was just incredible. Locals were dancing to their local music played by guitar. There were number of restaurants to choose from especially fresh sea foods. An amasing square..

Reminds us of Paris in some ways..It is the main route to the bus system for Menton and Monaco. It will be crazy when the construction reaches it for the tram connection.

A nice square to have a drink or something light to eat after you have been walking around in the old city. Just be aware of the restaurants, the quality is very varied. So take a look on trip advisor before you decide where to go.

Very vibrant place in Nice. One can scout around for nice dining places or just have a glass of wine and some cheese. Lots of local shops for shopping which was welcome from the standard label chains. We found a very nice chocolate shop. Bought very nice ones from her.

Many restaurant's, shops and a great gelato shops in the square. Also a great place to people watch. We listened to a large family enjoy a large dinner at a street side restaurant as they sang in harmony to what sounded like an old folk song. It was so nice to see the smiles and the faces of the young... More

Cafes are very expensive (6 euros for a demi of Monaco - lager with grenadine) and the waiters rather rude! The surrounding arcades stink of urine (I almost gagged getting off the tram at the beginning of Rue de la Republique and entering an arcade) and there are quite a few homeless people gathered around the arcades and the beginning...
