Place Masséna is without a doubt Nice's most famous square, and the most majestic. Surrounded by contrasting greenery of the Albert I and Masséna gardens, the imposing red-colored buildings command the eye and demand admiration. During Carnival, the King's float takes pride of place in this very spot. Place Masséna is also one of the city's key central points: Vieux-Nice is within easy reach, as well as the sea and the main shopping thoroughfares. You're bound to pass through it at some point!
