Place Garibaldi's renaissance has transformed this place into gentle haven when the fountains run, the pigeons flap and the hub-bub of Sunday morning haggling over art, coins and other petit-antiques over a coffee or early beer start the day off before heading off to a nearby Nicios beach

Every time we travel to Nice we head for Place Garibaldi, we feel very comfortable hear - pick any of the cafe' and you can't go wrong! Great vibe. Also part of the history of both France and Italy.

Great place to sit for meal or a drink and people watch. Very close to "Old Town" and walking distance to the port.

The square is attractive but not exciting unless there are antique markets that day. Walking distance from the port. One block from the modern museum of art which is worth a visit. Cinema Mercury is there with a good selection of English language films..restaurants on the square are unexciting. Walk or take the tram to Old town for lots of... More

An attractive and busy square, right in the centre of Nice, close to the old town and bar and restaurants! Very pretty at night and very popular with locals and tourists alike. Several of the bars offering 'happy hour' drinks. Very nice for a drink or a bite to eat to on a hot evening.

This looked a popular place to dine. There were several restaurants mainly outdoor types. Can't say what the food was like.

This is a large attractive area near the old town in Nice. There are the usual statues and fountains to see. Plenty of upmarket hotels and restaurants line the area. A nice place to go on a sunny day.

Must visit for an evening out on streets. Great atmosphere in the evening (going late into the night), street side restaurants are pricey but good. This area has all the drama you would like to see on a good holiday
