Place du Palais de Justice does not enjoy a high tourist rating only by force of its inner attractions, but also due to the fact it benefits from a virtually central location in Vieux Nice. Hence, it neighbors on tourist sights like the vibrant Cours Saleya, the monumental Opera de Nice, the imposing Cathedral of Sainte Reparate, as well as on Place Massena. The beaches of Nice are also within reach, accessible by crossing the dreamlike Quai des Etats Unis.

However, its vicinities aside, the square is in itself a splendid instantiation of the Neoclassical heritage of Nice. The recent restoration works have brought back to life the highlights of the square which, by far, refer to Palais de Justice (Law Court of Nice) and to the fountain which pegs out the place. The scenery is complemented by the colorful pavement. The monumental staircase of the Law Court offers the best lookout from where visitors can admire the view.
