This is the second large square in the city which leads to the old town and also the port. Just hop on the tram and it takes you right there.
Busy both by day and night with a good atmosphere and plenty going on. There are markets held here on certain days too.
Full of restaurants, a particularly large restaurant is Café du Turin, specialising in oysters and various other seafood, although my favourite was Civette Garibaldi, where they serve the local speciality, Socca, as well as a good choice of Sandwiches, Paninis and Pizza for lunch and they’re not as expensive as most places in Nice.
The architecture is of a different style here and the 3D painting effect of window shutters on the walls is really authentic and similar to those done on the side of the buildings on the Promenade des Anglais.
