Owner description: A picturesque city square in Nice's historic quarter.
Reviewed September 18, 2013

The Nice Jazz Festival occurred during our visit giving lots of free entertainment at Place Massena as well as throughout Nice. The modern art here is unique as it is illuminated at night adding to its appeal. This square is the starting point for great shopping starting at Galleries La Fayette and continuing along Rue Jean Medicine. Upscale boutiques and all the top designer shops are close by. Free Wi-Fi available here.

People watching! The openess of the square invites to stroll across, leading to great sculpture and fountaine at one end, Galerie La Fayette at the other end, the Streetcar traverses too. Musicians, Pantomimes and other Street performers act here. Well worth a stroll to the Old town crossing this square.

Nice coffee, well positioned cafes around square. Busy. Good for people watching. We visited on a mid week afternoon but shortly after a festival of French speaking co tires so there was lots going on

Place Massena easily reached by the efficient tram system from either direction. Walk freely o. The wide pedestrian only mall full of great shopping. Shops here all well priced and a breath of fresh air from the high end designer shops on offer most other places on the riviera.

Gracious square where lots of locals gather to chat and pass the time of day. Good shopping at Galerie Lafayette.
