Fodor's Review

Enjoy a time-out in the social center of the Old Town, also called Place Carnot, just off the Montée G.-Ringrave as you descend from the Citadelle. A symmetrical forest of plane trees provides shade to rows of cafés and restaurants, skateboarders, children, and grandfatherly pétanque players. The square becomes a moveable feast—for both eyes and palate—on market days (Tuesday and Saturday), while at night, a café seat is as coveted as a quayside seat during the day. Just as Deborah Kerr and David Niven once did in Bonjour Tristesse, watch the boules players under the glow of hundreds of electric bulbs. Heading back to the Vieux Port area, take in the boutiques lining rues Sibilli, Clemenceau, and Gambetta to help accessorize your evening look—you never know when that photographer from Elle will be snapping away at the trendoisie.
