  • I was looking for a place to take landscape photos and this place offers the best panoramic views. You have to climb a few steps to get to the top but totally worth it.  more »
  • Really liked it. You can climb with the tourist train, on foot. Wonderful views of the Bay and all nice. Nice walk and with the child, and together. Vobschem, I recommend.

  • 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

Where to stay in Nice

Places to stay in Nice fall into two groups: those inland and those near the coast. Luxury hotels line the coastline and offer water views and beaches.
