They've opened Cours Jacques Chirac, just behind the Cours Saleya, and it is very nice. Only the pub Van Diemens has a terrace out there so far, but as other bars and restaurants start to realise its potential it's going to become a cozy yet buzzing little street. A great addition to the Old Town of Nice. ... See MoreSee Less

How long does it take by the new tram from Place Garibaldi, next to the Port and Old Town, to the Alsace Lorraine tram stop on the far side of the Carré d'Or and Musicians Quarter?
One of my clients who bought an apartment right in the Square of Place Garibaldi wants a family member to buy "not too far away". I have a new property coming onto the market Monday on Boulevard Gambetta a short walk from the tram stop. It's a 2 bedroom apartment 74m² with 2 balconies, nice and quiet, plenty of French charm, and within his budget of "under €300,000".
From the moment I stepped onto the tram it took 4 minutes 40 seconds to step off the other end. So it really is five minutes away. I am interested in people's opinions. Would you buy a place twice the size with an extra bedroom 5 minutes by tram? Or a smaller one bedroom for the same price but a couple of minutes walk from the Square on foot?

Interesting, comments seem to side more with the smaller but closer apartment.
Since the tram has made distance a non-issue, for me it’s what neighborhood do you want to be in when you leave your apartment. That was my #1 priority (as you well know). Thanks again!
It has really opened up the whole area. If we were going to buy again we would definitely widen our search as the team is so easy.
I would go for the two bedroom for a 5 minute tram ride!
Location,location,location is the most important for me. So it would have to be the smaller apartment.
Personally I would buy the smaller apartment near the square.

The new flower market on the Cours Saleya is open to the public and it looks great.
I am not sure if there are more stalls, or spread out around the square it just looks that way, but it really is an impressive display.
The flower market used to occupy the first section of the Cours Saleya which then gave way to the fruit and vegetable market. With the flower market settled in its new home, this means phase one of the renovation of the Cours Saleya can now take place. Clever.
By the time they have finished that, the passage Jacques Chirac will be complete and the restaurants can move their terraces behind the Cours Saleya whilst phase two takes place. Again very well planned. With the underground tram being completed and all the bus lanes being converted into cycle lanes over the next few months, Nice is on track for an incredible 2020. ...

Though there have been graphics put up throughout the city and on the web site about how the different roads and squares under construction at the moment will look like, there have been no images of what we can expect from the small street between the Cours Saleya and the Promenade called "Cité du Parc". These images I have taken just now give us a very good idea what we can come to expect.
In other news, the Nice council have decided to name a road after Jacques Chirac to commemorate his service to the country. The road they have chosen to rename is the road Cité du Parc. It will now be called "le cours Jacques Chirac". ... See MoreSee Less
