It is funny that we visited here, the statue was standing by with a huge Marilyn Monroe. Modern plus classical. The fountain is nice.

It's a classic fountain with an Italian design. You've got your human figure in the middle and water jets all around, and it is dedicated to the sun, so there you have it. Also set in a very big open area.

This statue is one of the landmarks of Nice. It is located in city centre on the main square. The water in fountain is very dirty and I think that they should clean it.

It was my second visit to Nice and I revisited this place. Looks great at the daytime and nightime. Close to Place Massena and Promenade du Pallion.

A nice fountain between the main street and old town. Not worth an extra trip, but worth taking a look at when passing by it.

Massive square. There are "interesting" items on top of some of the light poles. Stand there and take in the surroundings.

Fontaine du Soleil is a lovely fountain located at the end of Place Massena. If you are in the area, it's well worth a visit

This is a lovely fountain, situated just up from the beach area, lovely architecture, and well worth a look.

Lovely fountain next to the central Place. I saw it on the way to the beach. Really nice design. Worth taking a quick picture

Controversial huge fountain at the south end of Place Massena topped with a oversized statue of Apollo, the Greek God. Apollo stands 23 feet tall and weighs 7 tons. Fountain was unveiled in 1956 with 5 bronze statues at the base representing Earth, Mars, Mercury, Venus & Saturn. The locals weren't impressed and particularly felt that Apollo's penis was too large. So the sculptor chiseled off some of its length. LOL In the 1970s, the League of Feminine Virtue waged a campaign against Apollo and all other nude statues. In response, the fountain was dismantled and Apollo moved to a sports stadium out of town. When attitudes eventually changed, the fountain was reinstalled in 2007 but Apollo wasn't returned until 2011. Come judge for yourself.
