Lovely surroundings. Lots of bars and restaurants to watch the day go by. A handy Monoprix. the bus stop to get to the airport is here too. On a Saturday there is an Antique fair.

“French or Italian----both! -two for one-”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

Yes, old town can be touristy and "buzzy" but still no better taste of France and Italy in one place. We have stayed dozens of times in or near Rosetti and are always rewarded with great people watching and human entertainment. Chez Juliette is very close (slightly uphill and on the right) it is a wonderful small dinner restaurant with a splendid duck confit. In the plaza itself there is a good brasserie for lunch called "La Claire Fontaine" have the mussels, you will be happy you did.

If you are looking for a perfect place to spend a few nights try renting a flat from "Nice Pebbles" they are reliable and leave no details unattended. Owned by an English couple they have all sorts of rentals in every price range----we are NEVER disappointed (www.nicepebbles.com).

We have been to Nice many times and sometimes hear that old town is too crowded or touristy. It is one of the few places that I would say "who cares!" it is a splendid place to call home while you explore the area. Have fun!

“Buzzes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

You can't miss it, right by the Cathedral that is being renovated. This square buzzes with restaurants and ice cream parlours. Great for people watching.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

Place Rossetti is a beautiful square in the old part of Nice, you can get there by bus or train, lots of cafe's, restaurants and one of kind unique stores, prices are much better here than the new parts of Nice's shopping area

“A buzzing Square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Never a dull moment in this Square. Lovely gathering place, good ice-cream shops, restaurants and cultural activity. Mind you a bit noisy at 2am when the Clubs come out.
