This square is huge and quite pretty. It is at the base of Avenue des Medecins, which is lined with shops and stores of every kind. The square itself is very active and busy with pedestrians, cars, and trams.

This was a beautiful area. There were muscians performing, singing. There were artist playing giant bubble games with children.

there's something mesmerising about Place Masséna. The fountain? The gardens, with its Miroir d'eau full of happy children (and aldults?) the contrast between the blue of the sky, the red Italian-style houses, and the checkered pavement? The coloured statues on top of the poles? At any rate, few squares in the world are as enchanting - as far as I know, at least!

Place Massena is right in the city center, connected to the pedestrian zone and only 5 minutes by walk from the Old Town and the seafront.
From here you can walk in any direction and find restaurants, shops or landmarks.
It is also very common to find street artists and performances here.
We suggest you to visit this beautiful square and to have a walk around the surrounding streets.

Beautiful square near to shopping district and also the old town. Very wide and spacious and modern and doesn’t seem crowded, even when busy. A dance group had part of the square cordoned off for themselves and a big happy crowd.
Good for people watching.

Lovely place with many people and a lot of busking to fill up the space in the evenings. Mostly festive during the early night but a lovely place any time a day!
