Surrounded by Italian-style architecture of red and yellow townhouses and situated in the center of Nice’s old town, Place Rossetti is a charming square featuring a small stone fountain and the lovely baroque Cathédrale Sainte-Réparate.

Easily accessed by the streets Mascoïnat, Rossetti, and the Pont-vieux, the square and its many sidewalk cafés attract a bustling daytime crowd of residents, families, and travelers eager for a bit of refreshment and relaxation.

At night, however, the square transforms into a meeting point for everyone from hippies to hipsters who gather to enjoy a few open-air drinks and conversation as music echoes off the walls of this enclosed space.

On summer nights, it’s common to encounter local musicians along Place Rossetti, who show up with cellos, guitars, and accordions to play long into the night, or the occasional group dancing beneath the stars with a simple boom box blasting old-school jams.

Place Rosetti is a bit out of the way on the north side of the old town, and there’s a rule of thumb in Nice that tells you the further you get from the beach, the fewer tourists there are. I don’t know if it’s true—Place Rosetti is full of foreign tongues and bustling activity, and is busy in the day and night. This is one of my favorite squares in Nice because the Italian presence is still very strong here—Nice used to be Italian, and there is even a Piazza Garibaldi in the city—and the good-natured openness that comes with the culture a bit further south is very present here.
