Massena, Quartier Etoile
The vibrant Place Masséna is the central square and beating heart of Nice, linking the Old Town to the boutiques of the Carré D'Or, and the seafront to the central avenue of Jean Medécin. The area has recently been renovated and embellished, providing at one end a glorious pedestrian square surrounded by shady archways and sunkissed benches from which to marvel at the local colours and character. At the other end stands the entrance into the Old Town with its eye-catching, semi-circular Niçois façade. The river bed over which this square is constructed was reopened at the end of 2013 providing a magnificent stretch of vibrant green park which crosses the square, leading down to the seafront and up to the Museum of Modern Art. A fountain display, exotic plants, photo exhibition and children's play areas make this kilometre-long swathe of green, the Promenade de Paillon, a new and vital place to be. Masséna and its central arena provide the backdrop to many of Nice's celebrated events from the Carnival in February, through the jazz festival in July to the Christmas market in December. It is also home to the ubiquitous department store Galeries Lafayette and gives onto the pedestrian street Rue Masséna with its array of restaurants and cafés in which to see and be seen. Quartier Etoile is the area right of the central main shopping high street in Nice, Avenue Jean Médecin. The buildings have an almost Parisian grandeur about them with tall French windows and often grand doorways and there are many small parks where the local Niçois walk their dogs and sit and muse whilst watching life go by. This is a very central location and there is an array of high street shops, boutiques and the department store Galeries Lafayette are all on your doorstep. Restaurants both modern and traditional are close by and the more tourist centre of the Old Town is just a few minutes walk away to 10 mins depending on your exact location. The beach and promenade are 10 minutes away by foot and public transport is excellent and within close proximity. The train station is a couple of stops ride on the tram or a short walk.
