The Place Masséna, the Heart of Nice

Located between Old Nice and the newer parts of the city, at the crossroads of several of main boulevards and only a stone's throw from the Promenade des Anglais, the Place Masséna is the main meeting place for inhabitants of Nice.

Take in the view by dining at one of the many restaurants nestled under its arcades or shopping at its top boutiques.

A Colorful Square

The red clay of the façades, the white window frames, the arches and the square shape of the northern part of the Masséna Square betray the influence of Italian Piedmont in its architecture.

The Place Masséna is also a major location for the famous Carnaval de Nice.
