Interesting part of Nice

Certainly worth a visit, the Place Garibaldi is an interesting part of Nice. Looks at its best on a bright sunny day.

It was fun to see and walk around. As palaces go we were not impressed with them in France having come from two weeks of palaces in Italy. That said it's worth seeing and can't avoid seeing it as you walk around Nice

A calm and cozy square with surrounding coffee shop where you can enjoy a coffee and a book read. I was there in February so not much was going on but I think it would be more alive as the weather warms up. Recommended.

Great open sunny square ( the tram runs across it) with lots of eateries and bars. Cafe Turin which specialises in seafood and crustaceans on one corner. Soon to have a new tram station. The nearby Place du Pin a must for more lively bars and eateries. This is the now the place to be in Nice. Try it you... More

Along with Place Massena, this is one of the favorite gathering spots in Nice. Great people watching!

Place Garibaldi's renaissance has transformed this place into gentle haven when the fountains run, the pigeons flap and the hub-bub of Sunday morning haggling over art, coins and other petit-antiques over a coffee or early beer start the day off before heading off to a nearby Nicios beach

This is a lovely place to visit after the sun goes down and the lights come on. I got some great photos of the illuminated buildings and it was nice to sit in a bar and admire the view.

Every time we travel to Nice we head for Place Garibaldi, we feel very comfortable hear - pick any of the cafe' and you can't go wrong! Great vibe. Also part of the history of both France and Italy.

Great place to sit for meal or a drink and people watch. Very close to "Old Town" and walking distance to the port.
