Fodor's Review

Encircled by grand vaulted arcades stuccoed in rich yellow, the broad pentagon of this square could have been airlifted out of Turin. In the center, the shrinelike fountain sculpture of Garibaldi seems to be surveying you as you stroll under the very attractive arcades and lounge in the surrounding cafés. An antiques market takes over the square on the third Saturday of every month (8–5), but if antiques are your thing, you're in the right place because the place is the start (or end) of La Promenade des 100 Antiquaires du Port de Nice, which runs down to the port. If you hear jackhammers, look no farther than Rue Catherine-Séguarane where work on Nice's second tram line is in progress.
