Place Massena

Place Massena is not only considered by locals to be the centre of Nice, but also the heart of the city’s historic downtown, as this holiday destination hosts scores of local gatherings such as concerts and festivals year after year. Indeed, what seems to draw so many holidaymakers to Place Massena annually is the promise of a lively crowd always gathered at this vibrant social commons. Travellers visiting the area on the rare quiet days can enjoy a leisurely stroll around its grounds, admiring one-of-a-kind landscape art and fountains in front of a stunning backdrop of Nice’s tranquil scenery. Holidaymakers hoping for a truly unforgettable sight should save their strolling for nighttime, when Place Massena’s many sculptures alight and take on new life.

  • Explore Place Massena in Nice to find the world-famous Fontaine du Soleil, which features five bronze statues commemorating a mythological Greek inspiration.
  • Enjoy a moment of serenity in an otherwise hustle-bustle downtown at the Jardin Albert 1er, featuring shady palms and pine trees, sprawling green grounds, and tranquil fountains.
  • Visit the one-of-a-kind shops in Nice surrounding Place Massena to pick up rare and interesting gifts for family and friends.

Driving to and around Place Massena is generally discouraged as roads are not always clearly marked and drivers can be aggressive. Instead, locals and holidaymakers alike agree that Nice’s famously efficient train system provides much safer and calmer transit. Visitors travelling along SNCF, the national rail carrier, should board Line 3 and get off in Nice. Visitors can also take the RCA, the regional bus, into Nice from surrounding towns. Taxi drivers intimately familiar with Place Massena and the surrounding areas are also abundantly available in the area.
