Place Massena and Nice at night

Place Massena is biggest square in Nice and a lot of people use this as a reference and meeting point, as well as for public events such as concerts, political gatherings and celebrations. The square is surrounded by mediterranean inspired terracotta coloured buildings.

There are 2 things I like about Place Massena:

1) The sitting figures on poles that changes in colour
2) The fountain with the horses

And just on the corner is the Zone Pietonne (pedestrian zone) where many shops, cafes and restaurants are located. It can get very busy here quickly.

From the square it’s just a 2 to 3 minute walk to the Vieille Ville (old town), just right across actually, and the Promenade des Anglais, the coast.

Here is Place Massena by day:

The tram line passes through the square.

And Place Massena by night:

Those sitting figures on poles are cool.

Moi here at the fountain, one of my very few souvenir pictures of Nice.

More night pictures of Nice:

This is at the Zone Pietonne (pedestrian zone) where many cafes and restaurants are located.

A main street in Nice.

I forgot the name of the street but this is where the signature shops are located.
