“Art in a lush setting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

The art is enjoyable in a building with lovely architecture, walls, mirrors, chandeliers and furniture. Not much will be memorable.

“People-watch to your heart's content”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

At the moment, there is some construction work going on at either side the square, which impedes the impressive panoramas. But, nevertheless, this is a great place to watch the world go by and play "spot the nationality". The square has been much improved in recent years, following the installation of the tramlines. It feels like the beating heart of Nice.

“Lovely central square in Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

This is a hub of transportation and activity in Nice. There are lovely sculptures and 8 statues on high poles that at night change colors--an interesting sight.

“Lovely fountain and sculptures”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

Lovely fountain and sculptures, which were light up at night-time. Beautiful architecture. Nice place to hang around in the daytime and plenty of shops to visit.

“Building site but will be lovely once finished”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

Sadly Place Massena was a building site when we were there but will be lovely once finished. It was lovely to sit in the sun in the central concourse.
