Nice little square acknowledging Marechal Foch. The Petit Train tour goes from here and it is close to all the town restaurants and bars plus some gift shopping. There are plenty makets and evening life entertainment

When getting off the cruise ships turn left and walk along the harbor until one sees open air square on right side. Cross the two way street with caution. Cars do not slow down for pedestrians. Napoleon's statue overlooks Place Foch's activities.

When we visited the whole square was full of fantastic food stalls. Every type of local produce available and the cheese was my own particular favourite . The stall owners were very nice and helpful
