The walks on the places

The Masséna Place
The famous Place Massena is one of the jewels of the city of Nice. It is a magnificent architectural ensemble with its Pompeian red buildings with white walls and arches, all recalled here that Nice, before being annexed by France in 1860, was Italian.
Dedicated to a Marshal of France, Andre Massena, French patriot firmly attached to his roots, it is a place that has a national dimension; it has seven statues of Spanish artist Jaume Plensa, entitled "Conversation in Nice which represent the seven continents.
This is an extraordinary scene for the city, which organizes many events there (Carnival, Nice Jazz Festival, ...) .It is the perfect start for a walk in Old Nice, or on the Promenade des Anglais.

Garibaldi Place
The Garibaldi Place is named after General Joseph Garibaldi (1807-1882).
This is the oldest large city square.
The Garibaldi statue was sculpted by Antoine Etex and Gustave Deloye. We see Garibaldi clenched his fist and his eyes fixed on the road to Turin, Italy. Below, a bronze with two women, one representing France (right woman in Phrygian cap and whose flag bears a cock pic with wings spread open), the other Italy (whose wife left the shaft of flag bears a Roman wolf); both watch over his cradle. They are framed by two lions representing the two sons of Garibaldi.
The arcades of the square are inspired by the ones on the places of Turin.
Archaeological excavations have uncovered in 2007 the remains of a defensive planning in Garibaldi Square, including the remains of a medieval tower and thick bastions. You can visit the archaeological crypt.

The Saint-François Place
St. Francis Square takes its name from the former Franciscan monastery, abandoned during the revolution of 1789 and demolished today.
You can see a curious frame Turin baroque style: it is the municipal palace, which was the old Town Hall.
There is also the St. Francis that can be seen from the Massena Tour, which is distinguished by its clock installed at the top by the municipality in 1841. This clock is the only remnant of the former convent.
This plaza welcomes the famous fish market in a very friendly atmosphere, every day except Monday, from 6 to 13h.

The Rossetti Place
Small ventilated place in the heart of the old town. It is a very picturesque place, with flakes of linen hanging from the windows. Sidewalk cafes, restaurants, and the famous glacier "Fenocchio" with incredible flavors.
All this facing the Cathedral of St. Reparata. Place the rossetti looks like a theater.

The Place du Palais
Place on which stood the old Dominican convent, and now occupied by the Palais de Justice. The square is pedestrian, and provides access to the lanes of the Old Town and Cours Saleya.

Palce Masséna
The walks on the markets

The famous Flowers and fruits market of the Cours Saleya
A few step away from the mayor is the Cours Saleya.

It is undoubtedly the most animated place of the old town, and one the favorite promenade of Nice. We can find many coffee shop and restaurants. Extraordinary view of the waterfalls of the Castle. The wpord Saleya may come from the word " soulelhà " meaning " It’s sunny ." But it could also come salt cellars whose tall buildings once stood in this place ; because Saleya was also a former district under the protection of the fishermen of St. Peter. It is here, from Sunday to Tuesday between 7 am and 13h , that the famous flower and fruit market takes place.

Flowers has always played an important role in the history of Nice. Flower names are given to certain districts of the City , such as flowers Vallon or Valrose Vallon . The flower is also a pattern that is found on many friezes that adorn the eaves of houses Nice . And it is no coincidence that the traditional costume of Nice with apron and cape is the one of " flower girls " . Finally , it is Nice that organizes since 1876 the famous battle of the flowers during Carnival.

The oeillets of Saint-Laurent, the mimosa of Mandelieu , violets from Tourrettes sur Loup , roses and jasmine from Grasse, bougainvillea (discovered and brought from Brazil during an expedition of the first French navigator to circumnavigate the world Louis- Antoine de Bougainville in 1766 ) are some of the iconic flowers of the French Riviera.

Alphonse Karr, French novelist, writer and journalist , horticulturist in a second life contributed in the mid-nineteenth century to make these flowers kwown by shipping them throughout Europe. He was also the first to open in the city center of Nice a commercial cut flowers. It’s very distractive and you will be tempted to buy eveything! But be careful ! it is more expensive than elsewhere, because most of the customers are tourists

The flea markette
Cours Saleya turns itself into a flea market every Monday between 7:30am and 18pm.
Some furniture and many trinkets and other curiosities are a delight for walkers , amateurs and connoisseurs.
