A perfect spot in the beautiful old town to have a nice meal with deserts, yes lots of ice cream shops around and restaurants cafes in this area makes it a perfect destination in the old town area. Beautiful narrow streets and small cafes in here are nice to see. We loved this area. Always crowded.

Stayed in an apartment there. Fabulous looking out every day to the hub hub of the Old Town and its characters and bars.

Went roaming with my camera at 6am and not a soul in sight--so peaceful and lovely. Came back around 6pm and so lively you wouldn't believe it. Home of Fennochio's, the famous Nice ice creamery (or is it gelateria?) and it was so crowded I did not want to stand in line. I was there the day before Palm Sunday... More

Rossetti is generally buzzing with life from mid morning until late evening. Ice creams, coffees are the general fare, gently easing into cocktails and other refreshments as the evening darkens

Everybody appears to be enjoying just being there and most people have cups/cones of arguably the best ice cream in Nice (probably in the whole France) from nearby Fenocchio. Church is recently renovated and beautiful. A lot of good restaurants and ethnic food also available near this place.

Fenocchio Glacier and the cathedral are both in this small square in the heart of Vieux Nice. Well worth a visit. Enjoy people watching whilst sampling the many ice cream flavours.

We had crepes a couple of times here and there was plenty of choice of establishment and seating. It was a shame that the Claire fountain wasn't operational at the time but the church has been very recently repainted and his a hidden gem. It was also interesting to see the army patrol and how they approached entering the square.... More

A super square to be in - full of life and that French joie de vive. The cathedral has recently been refurbished and is magnificent - you occasionally have free concerts playing here. The square also has a marvellous ice-cream stand and lots of bars for a drink to sit and watch life go by. Enjoy

Just a block or two up from cours saleya, we were lucky to stop by Place Rossetti on a Sunday morning when the Folk Dancers of Nice were putting on a show. The square was packed with tourists and locals alike, at least one of whom was a thief who unzipped my wife's backpack while we were watching the show.... More
