This is another fine place in Nice. Note that some of the windows are painted! From restaurant Turin you have a nice of the place (from most of the outdoor tables) while eating e.g. excellent oysters.

This was an impressive structure with an impressive collection of art. The views of the water were spectacular from outside. There were great representations of Picasso's work.

This is one of the central squares of Nice from which everything emanates (roads, buses, trams etc) It is ringed, as you would expect by cafe/bar/restaurants but if you delve into the nearby roads and streets you will find a much better array of more "local" style restaurants. Market day on Saturday was full of hustle and bustle and interesting... More

The square is or was very picturesque but is a little spoilt by the transport hub it has become. Lots of shops, cafes and eateries close to old town, museums and port.

I wouldn't call Place Garibaldi a tourist attraction, since it is just a city square. But on sunny days, it is so relaxing and enjoyable to sit in one of the multiple cafes there and get a coffee or a drink under the sun.

Close to the port a more quieter but not quiet area of the city with great transport links and much to do and see, works currently taking place around the port.

This is a nice area to relax, have a nice cool drink and enjoy food. The locals hang out when it is nice outside.

Garibaldi Square is a hub of activity and when we're in Nice we find ourselves here on almost a daily basis. It's here you'll board the trams, find grocery shops and stop for a glass of wine, snack or meal at one of the many restaurants. The Modern Art Museum is here and just south of the square on Blvd...

Friends and I stayed on Avenue de la République just near the Garibaldi tram stop. What a great location. The restaurants around the square attract people from the city as well as tourists -- which is a telling sign of local vibrancy. Yes, a tram does run through the large Place Garibaldi, but we did not find that a minus.... More

This square is worth visiting. It is surrounded with lovely Italian-style houses and there are many nice cafes and restaurants.
