Historic Site · Tourist Spot
A monumental example of Baroque architecture, Place Garibaldi spreads across the area between the old town and the town center, lined by Roman-style buildings. This spacious square was designed by Antoine Spinelli, who also worked on the beautiful Chapelle du Saint-Sepulcre, which is visible from the square. Visit the cafes and try the excellent local seafood. From here, take a tour of the harbor of Vieux-Nice, the municipal theater, or the Modern Art Museum, which are all in walking distance. To plan Nice vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • This large square is a lovely spot to explore. It boasts an uplifting ambience, seats to relax or people watch, and nice restaurants in which to grab a bite of food. Recommended.  more »
