  • A very good hiking path from Monaco. Guidesigns could be better, as we got lost a couple of times. The little village up there is just marvelous.
  • The monument itself is okay if u like the history, but the view over the Mediterranean Sea is magnificent

  • 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.
