Trip Planner: Europe / France / Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur / Alpes Maritimes / La Turbie / Sightseeing / Trophee d'Auguste
You must visit Trophee d'Auguste, which is an ancient historical monument that stands tall and majestic above the Bay of Monaco. This trophy is unique as well as an ancient work of architecture that is still standing. Trophee d'Auguste looks well maintained and is in good shape considering its age. The trophy is very prominent in the French Riviera and it spans the entire area from the Italian coast to Esterel. The site is open for public visit on all days except on Monday. The visit timings may vary a little though. You can reach this place easily if you take a motorway from Nice.

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.
Андрей ЛисичкинThe 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.
Vanessa MossinoInteresting Museum to allow to realize the greatness of the trophy to its construction.
