“Another beautiful square in the heart of Nice.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Place Garibaldi is beautiful, clean and refreshing. There stands an impressive historical building, the Chapelle du Saint-Sepulcre that has gorgeous Italianate influences on its facade. We went in the summer and was greeted with pink blossoms on short trees all around. It perked up the whole square. Unlike the Place Massena, that hardly has any plant let alone a tree. This is the place to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee or some gelato on a hot day.

“Much better than it used to be”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Now that the tram system is in place the cars are reduced in number making the overall air quality much better than it used to be. The whole Square is pleasant, the statue of Garibaldi now has a water feature which on hot sunny days is welcome. Lots of restaurants, bars and cafes spill out onto the area making it a pleasant place to sit and watch the world go by. The nearby Cafe du Turin specialises in seafood, you can get pizzas, steaks, snacks, ice creams, in fact more or less any type of cuisine (except fine food) here. Monoprix can be useful if self-catering. The tram stops here, both directions, the bus terminus for Monaco and St Jean Cap Ferrat are now located just off this Square.

“Quiet and pleasant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Relocated to hotels in this area after bad experience near train station. Not luxury but really pleasant area, with a lovely restaurant. Came back to eat here each night, was a breath of fresh air after previous place.

“A great square”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

A nice, old, large square. Near the center of it, stands the monument of Garibaldi himself. The tram crosses in the middle of the square. It has some small cafes around it and in one corner you can find a nice market with economic prices.

However nice place for eating or just have a walk! Nice architecture of the buildings and the green. It's lovely place to spend time relaxing!
