Place Garibaldi is a great place Nice, located on the northern edge of the old town of the neighborhood in the port area; Built from 1773 to designs by architect Antoine Spinelli, it is the oldest large city square and one of its emblematic places.
First extension of the old town to the new town, Garibaldi Square is the second largest pedestrian square of Nice and is located in the heart of Nice life.
The buildings surrounding the square have all arcades. Many shops, cafes and restaurants are installed. Since the renovation of the square in 2011,restaurant terraces extend over the place and are obliged to respect a color and a type of strict furniture. On the corner there is the coffee of Turin, founded in 1908 and specializes in seafood. South side, facing the Avenue of the Republic, is the Holy Sepulchre Chapel.
The soil in the southwestern part of the square is built on a slab covering the remains of the city at different times and particularly its old fortifications. A visitable crypt is thus situated under the square
