Owner description: A picturesque city square in Nice's historic quarter.
Reviewed July 6, 2013

This square is the most important one in Nice. It is divided in two halves and the tram passes between it. It is surrounded with cafes where you can take a coffee or a beer and spend some nice time. The statues on top of those pillars are interesting also. From the evening and on, they light up and take different colors and the view is nice. An old square.

No spectacular views or anything but nice place to have a few beers & people watch. Also the point of origin for a lot of buses.

Great lively place . Always some entertainment performance going on . Explore the by lanes for shops and restaurants . Be careful with your belongings . The tram servicing the are has made travel easy and convenient . 5 mins walk to the beach . Try to stay in this area as its conveniently located to all parts of the town .

A spectacular view with the backdrop of the Alpes Maritime, this place is well laid out and looked after, there are installations of the modern art and of course, the arcades look beatiful too, with all major bus routes going just behind the Lafayette Gallery. However, at night expect Roma people on the benches.
