One of the most eye-catching squares in Nice, Place Garibaldi is famous for celebrating the birthplace of the founder of Italy. Discover a large fountain adorned with Bonaparte’s statue, shady arches, leafy trees and a magnificent choice of cafés and restaurants from which to watch the world go by. Leading off at an angle you will find the animated rue Bonaparte, which over recent years has become a wonderful community incorporating both young and old, residents and visitors, artisans, creatives, stylish bars and restaurants and a respectful, tolerant mix reminiscent of Le Marais in Paris. A 5-minute walk takes you in one direction to the Port and in another into the Old Town, and up to the glorious views from Colline du Chateau.  The Museum of Modern Art and library behind the square are also the start of the Promenade du Paillon, a long green park which is a lovely walk to the sea front or a destination in itself on sunny days.
