Inspirock Rating:
5/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web
Hike on limestone rocks through wilderness of cacti and uncultivated herbs to reach Tete de Chien, where you can picnic while taking in the scenic views of the French Riviera. This historic site was the place where Cesar rested after he conquered Gauls and where some of the German troops were stationed in World War II--you can still see the remains of old bunkers. One story says that a German commander saw the plane crash into the sea from this spot, which was later speculated to be the final flight of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry--the author of “The Little Prince.” The area is popular with runners and rock climbers.

  • Monaco, one must not nice find - it is loud and übervölkert and only a few places know to convince critical minds. The view from the "dog head" is however formidable, even in bad weather. You should inform himself better suited on the situation of the tête de Chien elsewhere than on a map of this site, because here it is completely wrong eingtragen: actually, you should up BB´s about the also respectable cemetery by the fine centre La Turbie until the end of the mountain spur you go, from where views of East , but also to the West towards nice can get enough see. And if you're lucky, you can sometimes detect even Corsica on the horizon.
