“Lively Area...”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Easily accessed by tram, foot or bus. This area has been totally re-vamped and is now an almost traffic free zone. Sit in one of the bars/restaurents around the square and people watch. You can walk down to the port from here. Check out the new underground museum displaying Vieux Nice (Old Nice) ruins which were discovered when the new tramway was built. There's a great sea-food restaurant on one corner which is practically part of the old town. The other restaurants in the square serve Italian/French type dishes. Great in Summer day or night or on a warm winter day eating out as these restaurants don't have a very large indoor area, but you can still eat there in winter so don't be detered.

“A newly trendy corner of Nice”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Once a rather neglected square, now nicely restored. It's full of new cafes and the marvellous old Grand Cafe de Turin where you can enjoy the freshest seafood in Nice, sitting outside. The tram takes you there in just a few minutes. In the middle, a huge statue of Garibaldi surrounded by a cool fountain faces in the direction of Italy.

“Open Outdoor Square Adjecent to Old Nice”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

The open Place Garibaldi is a welcome counterpoint to the charming narrow streets of old Nice. Local artists have their work on display for sale, and their are several cafes & brasseries lining the square. This is also a transportation hub for both the tram A1 and several bus routes.

“Best for people watching”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Favourite place for a glass of wine in the evening and watching the world go by. Buildings all now restored and love the juxtaposition of the trompe l'oeil with the super-modern tram system (also a great little cinema tucked away in the corner!)
