A very nice square with beautiful buildings in beautiful colors. Check also the fountains. The park is closed at night but during daytime it is also worth a visit.

I found this place by accident and it was amazing. Walking distance to the Promenade Anglais. If you walk pass this, you will find great selections of amazing restaurants!

Loved the place Massena - the sqaure with Galleries Lafayette, the trams running trough, the places to sit and the surrond park that sits over the river, with its pretty fountains.

Fabulous square with beautiful buildings and vibrant atmosphere. Should not be missed. And take a look at the adjacent choreographed fountains. A lovely focal point in the city centre.

A lovely square, lit up at night with interesting colour changing figures on posts. The fountains are effective. Nice shops nearby.
