Everybody appears to be enjoying just being there and most people have cups/cones of arguably the best ice cream in Nice (probably in the whole France) from nearby Fenocchio. Church is recently renovated and beautiful. A lot of good restaurants and ethnic food also available near this place.

Fenocchio Glacier and the cathedral are both in this small square in the heart of Vieux Nice. Well worth a visit. Enjoy people watching whilst sampling the many ice cream flavours.

We had crepes a couple of times here and there was plenty of choice of establishment and seating. It was a shame that the Claire fountain wasn't operational at the time but the church has been very recently repainted and his a hidden gem. It was also interesting to see the army patrol and how they approached entering the square.... More

A super square to be in - full of life and that French joie de vive. The cathedral has recently been refurbished and is magnificent - you occasionally have free concerts playing here. The square also has a marvellous ice-cream stand and lots of bars for a drink to sit and watch life go by. Enjoy

Just a block or two up from cours saleya, we were lucky to stop by Place Rossetti on a Sunday morning when the Folk Dancers of Nice were putting on a show. The square was packed with tourists and locals alike, at least one of whom was a thief who unzipped my wife's backpack while we were watching the show.... More

Spent a few days in Nice and walked to this square for dinner a couple of evenings. Good selection of reasonably priced restaurants.

This has become a more desirable area over the last few years. While not as smart or trendy as the old flower market there is a nice, genuine atmosphere in the evenings as more locals than tourists gather for an early evening drink, some very good happy hour offers as well. Weekends often see market stalls and various attractions, music... More

If you are passing through Old Town, then you'll probably pass by here. Grab a gelato and take a break from all the walking. Enjoy the small square and marvel at the endless colors of the streets and buildings.
