  • I like to walk so I walked up Castle Hill. All in all, I didn’t find it that impressive. The area at the top doesn’t seem that well maintained. I walked up, I looked around, I walked down. Not a big d...  more »
  • You can get a free lift to the top and has again wonderful views over the city. Down, you can via several steps, or even with the lift. The ruins of the castle can be seen. In February, the restaurant / bistro was closed and blocked some viewpoints because of construction work.

  • This has THE view over Nice and it's an amazing place to visit both day and night. I really enjoyed climbing up the hill as the air is so fresh and there are great surprises behind every turn. However if you don't like walking there is a free tramway to the top as well. A must when visiting Nice!
  • Most spectacular view of Nice! You can see both the city and the beach and the sea. Going there at sunset is just unforgettable.
  • The quintessential location for magnificent views of the city, promenade, and beach. The climb up is short and well worth the experience. Sunset is without question, the best time to be here.
  • It's an uphill location so will need a bit of walking if you are not part of a guided tour. Absolutely amazing view from the top so worth the visit!
  • I would definitely recommend going to the colline du château, the night is amazing, kids can play everywhere Definitely a peaceful place with ancient ruins
