Place Masséna is one of Nice's most famous squares, and also one of the most majestic. Surrounded by the greenery of the Albert I and Masséna gardens, the imposing red-colored buildings in the square demand admiration. During the Carnival, the King's float takes place at this very spot. Place Masséna is also one of the city's key central points: Vieux-Nice is within easy reach, as is the sea and the main shopping thoroughfares. You're bound to pass through it at some point!
