I kept coming back to this part of town for the friendly, open atmosphere and the variety of cafes and restaurants around the edges. Just watch out for the trams gliding through!

A point reference and gateway to one’s stroll to different parts of the city. It’s a pit stop for various restaurant around or where one relaxes and plan. It’s however a concrete plaza, which radiates heat on a sunny day.

This is a large square dominated by a statue of Garibaldi. Lots of people wandering around. Artists selling their wares. A wonderful place to get a pizza or sandwich and have a picnic. Easy location to go to the harbor or the old town.

This famous square of Nice is on the border of the old town that connects it with the new city. The name of the square is still marked in French as well as Occitan, Plassa Garibaldi
