The Modern Centre

Nice, France

The hub of Nice's Modern Centre is the red ochre arcaded Place Masséna, named after one of Napoleon’s generals. The Ligne d’Azur tram system glides silently through the Place, in between pedestrians and the seven participants of the Conversation of Nice, The Seven Thinkers, a series of sculptures by the Catalan artist Jaume Plensa.

Leading off the Place are Boulevard Jean Médicin and Rue Masséna which offer a paradise for those visitors wishing to indulge in some retail therapy!

A few minutes walk from here brings you to the fabulous Promenade des Anglais and the world famous Hotel Negresco and the twenty five beaches along the beautiful Baie des Anges.


To take in all the attractions try following two walking tours: Modern Nice In-A-Day explores the Inner part of the Modern Nice close to the centre;
