“A short walk or tram from the station to Place de la Comedie”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

What a grand central square full of life with bars,restaurants and entertainment.The buildings are splendid with the highlight being the Opera House.The old quarter is close by and is full of small shops and outdoor bars away from the busy Place de la Comedie.You can easily walk around the city and is worth a visit,even for a day.

“Great meeting place”
Reviewed February 13, 2014

Massive square, near lots of shops and restaurants. Definitely worth a visit. Street performers most nights. The metro takes you right to the heart of it.

“Good for people watching...”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

...About it. And the constant trams which ply to and fro. I'd head up into the ancient quarter and that will put it all into context. BUT, it is beautfully done and the Opera House looks magnificent...

“Lively but watch out for beggars”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

This is where the people watchers go and why not? Overlooked by the majestic Opera, the Place de la Comedie has expensive cafes lining one side of the square and trams, stalls and the obligatory carousel on the other side. Watch out for beggars but enjoy the accordionists, street artists and other performers.

“Typical European Plaza/Platz/Place”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

Great Christmas Market just off the place, large helpful tourist info center at the far corner. Plenty of great bars and restaurants surround the place. Patio seating in December with ample heat lamps. .
