“Just a big empty square”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

There really isn't anything here - I'm not sure why its an attraction. A few outdoor cafes, and the tramlines runs through the centre.

“enjoy dring night!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Though under reconstruction until Sept 2013, this is a vibrant district always full of people. Come in the evening and watch how the statues change its color, sit by the fountain, have a ice-cream and just observe.

“It's a Place.......”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

.....thats it really. Our hotel was on Rue Massena so we passed thru here every day on the way to the Old Town or to get the tram. I can't say its anything special, its pleasant enough, has the usual tourist vultures looking for fresh meat! I can think of many more impressive town squares.

“Avenue Jean Medecin - Shoppers heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

If you like shopping, you'll be in your element here.
The Place Massena has a number of interesting sculptures/fountain and a wide pedestrian area.

From Place Massena, head up towards the railway station on Avenue Jean Medecin - A wide range of shops, including brands that have disappeared from the UK high street (C&A, Benetton). Theres a tramline running through the centre, the foot paths can get narrow at times, especially when it gets busy, watch out for the steps that surround some of the tree bases, if you're too busy window shopping you may find yourself falling over !
