“great place for people watching”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

More of an intersection than a square and in spite of the construction work going on - it has a real 'french' feel. High end shopping on one side and the old town on the other. Cafes and bars abound and Galleries Layfayette for serious shopping.

“the place itself isnt interesting, but the surroundings yes”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

the place itself is not interesting. nothing to see! but it is the intersection between Avenue Jean Medecin (the main shopping street of Nice) and the Old town (the place to eat and walk). So its not a place to visit, but ull surely pass by it while finishing your shopping and heading to eat (or the other way)

“Wide and beautiful”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

This square is huge. Not enormous, but still pretty wide. And it is very, very beautiful. I love it, i love walking there, watching people walk around. A gem inside Nice.

“Nice area for dining”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

This is one of the smaller avenues for dining-but many choices available-mainly italian-also very convenient-you are there when you step off the tram.
