One of my favourite squares in Nice with the imposing statue, the big trees and many cafes and restaurants for a drink or meal. Fun just to sit with a glass of wine or coffee and people watch. Here you will find G Square, an excellent restaurant suitable for a cełebration dinner or brunch. Cafe de la Place, a casual... More

The Trompe-l’oeil facades of the square are so well done and makes the whole place look more Italian than French. The cafe Turin and it’s oyster bar makes us feel we are in Paris! The many cafe’s are friendly although not super quality and the winter-sun warms us as we sip drinks and coffee. The Tram stops at the square... More

This is not a regular thing on this square but there was one when we were there. The building window surrounds are an example of very well executed Trompe l'Oeil. This is a good tram station to walk from to the port.

A colourful way to look at some Nice life. This area is easy walking distance of the hotel. It was a very enjoyable part of my first exploration of the old town.

Since the Place has been re-furbished and the tram is running through it - the buzz has picked up in a good way. In summer - everyone and his dog - sitting around at the many restaurants - just taking in the vibe. Its a stroll down to the old Nice - and everything is within strolling distance - just... More
