  • The small museum tells the story of the restoration of the monument. Very interesting to know. It's worth the climb to the top.

  • I've lived on and off on the Cote d'Azur since 2001, and never made the journey up to La Turbie and these stunning Roman ruins. The contrast between ancient and modern is truly memorable as you stand ...  more »
  • This monument was built more than 2000 years ago to celebrate the victory of Augustus on the peoples of the Alps... strategically built on the highest point of the way Julia who was the only road... this monument reflects the power of Rome... a ride from the old town will take you 2 hours to walk, time to go and admire the landscape and the view of Monaco at the bottom and then the Italian mountains on your left on arrival the monument... and a guide invites you to follow inside to climb to the top by a small flight of stairs... then a trip to the Museum built for his story, a historical monument in 1905 after joining in 1860 the County of Nice, the France, patrons & architects contributed to the partial building renaissance... beautiful moment of relaxation and culture... our daughter of 09 years particularly appreciated So yes the price is not prohibitive, there are sometimes cost a few euros for the privilege to see this place... I advise if you make a stop at la Turbie... you can admire on the way down the streets of the old village and a beautiful Horn the eye next to the laundry of the entrance of the village... don't forget not your camera and if the heart tells you... a few history books are sold, playful notebooks for children and for lovers of the kitchen... invest in one of the small culinary books in order to rediscover the kitchen 20 century back... in your kitchen! That of happiness! A remake with pleasure... we will take our friends to the occasion... in winter can be coupled to a visit the afternoon on Chin and his party of lemons and his exhibition of Orchid for example...

  • The trophy is amazingly deceptive. It looks average size from the town or surrounding area but its well worth trying to catch it open and get a tour. It is huge and a real eye opener into what Roman engineering could achieve. There is also a small museum on site which is also fascinating in terms of how the trophy was erected. A must visit if you are in the area of La Turbie.
  • Nice view from the top.
  • The monument is closed on Mondays, the day we intended to visit... It is closed off and there is an entrance fee. You can only catch a glimpse from the outside.
  • The only surviving ancient building of this type. There is a park and a small museum. From the top of the monument to the great views.

  • Interesting Museum to allow to realize the greatness of the trophy to its construction.
