Tete de Chien, La Turbie
(5/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
Hike across limestone rocks through a wild landscape of cacti and uncultivated herbs to reach Tete de Chien, where you can picnic while taking in scenic views of the French Riviera. This historic site was the place where Cesar rested after he conquered the Gauls, and also served as a base for German troops during WWII; you can still see the remains of their old bunkers. Legend has it that a German commander saw a plane crash into the sea from this spot; it was later thought to be the final flight of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry--the author of “The Little Prince.” If you're more into activity than history, the area serves as a great place to go for a run or try your hand at rock-climbing.

  • It's dazzling! "Dog's head" is at the top of Monaco. There is a splendid view from up there! It's worth to go there!
