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, with its controversial fountain and sculptures representing The Seven Thinkers.

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 of the modern City (and some of the old one) try following two walking tours: Modern Nice In-A-Day explores the Inner part of the Modern Nice close to the centre and Old Nice Walking Tour
