Very large square filled with shops and restaurants

Checked out in May 2912 while in Nice for the day after walking down the promenade. Looked at a few menus, patisserie, and club Monaco here. The floor of the square is black and... read more

Starting close to the always a bit shoddy streets of the railway station and ending at the magnificent place Massena passing Galleries Lafayette and the main cathedral this street has all, good and bad, but more good than bad, impossible to avoid when in Nice

Checked out in May 2912 while in Nice for the day after walking down the promenade. Looked at a few menus, patisserie, and club Monaco here. The floor of the square is black and white tiles. Reminded me of Alice in wonderland. Very nice to walk in this area on a sunny day. Didn't spend lots of time here, but... More

Bisected by the main trolley line and served by numerous busses this monumental square is as downtown as you can get. Even into the evening when it is lit by glowing sculptures throngs of people are coming or going to the adjacent sites A few blocks to the west, the legendary riviera hotels. To the north, the main shopping street,... More

Gallerise Lafayette is on one side, and the old town on the other. There are parks coming off it and a central tram stop. A super place to shop, walk, sit or eat. Caters to all budgets. Bright and light during the day and lit by interesting modern statues at night!

It's a fairly nice street for walking and shopping, mostly without car traffic, but trams and lots of bikes around. Bit dirty after busy day.

It was easy to walk along with young children. Plenty of shops just as you would expect in a city centre. It was pretty basic.

This is a traffic-free wide main shopping street with mainly designer and big-name shops, cafes and some Restaurants, as well as Churches. It offers a big multi-storey shopping centre also. About 1/3 are open on Sundays only. The public service trams operate in this street but no other general traffic. This is a very attractive main street.
