Place du Palais

In the southern French city of Nice on the Mediterranean Sea, all public squares are gathering places for impromptu concerts, cafes, and simply enjoying life. Place du Palais is no exception. What makes this area remarkable is the stunning architecture of its buildings, which provide an interesting backdrop. Recently restored by the Nice city government, the square is filled at all hours, mostly by young people who come to watch the many events that occur here. Place du Palais is located near the entry to Nice’s Old Town, between Cours Saleya and Place Massena.

  • Stroll inside the splendid neoclassical heritage of the Place du Palais Court of Justice, from which the square takes its name, and climb its monumental staircase to get the best view of the surrounding Nice neighbourhood.
  • Note the square’s other interesting architectural structures, the Palais Rusca, which is home of the tribunal de grande instance, and the City of Nice clock tower.
  • Visit one of the many markets that operate there, including those devoted to antique books, postcards, arts and crafts, fish, and more.

Place du Palais is located near the Acropolis T1 line tram stop operated by the Ligne d’Azure transportation network. The square is located approximately eight kilometres from the Gare de Nice St. Augustin train station. Rail service connects the city with most major cities in Europe, many of which may be reached through high-speed Intercity Express trains. Visitors flying into Nice land at the Cote D’Azur Airport, six kilometres away. It is a two terminal facility that connects the city with destinations throughout Europe and with limited service to North America, Israel, and Turkey. Travellers can take taxis into Nice.
