Place Garibaldi er omkranset af smukke barok bygninger fra det 18. århundrede, og i bygningernes arkader er der butikker, restauranter og caféer. Specielt om aftenen er der meget liv på pladsen i de udendørs restauranter, hvor både de lokale og turisterne nyder det gode middelhavskøkken.
As you can see from previous blog posts, we visited Nice in southern France in October, where our hotel was situated near Place Garibaldi. The square is named after Giuseppe Garabaldi, who was born in Nice in 1807. At that time, Nice was a part of France, but the city has also both before and later been a part of the Italian duchies. Since 1860 the city has, however, been part of the French State. - Giuseppe Garabaldi was Italian general and politician, and he was one of the founders of the modern Italian state.
Place Garibaldi is surrounded by beautiful Baroque buildings from the 18th century, and in the arcades there are shops, restaurants and cafes. Especially in the evening, it is lively on the square in the outdoor restaurants where both locals and tourists are enjoying the good Mediterranean cuisine.
