  • Thought about the lift but decided to go via the steps which were not that bad at all. Most flights are fairly shallow and we were able to cope quite easily even with our dodgy knees. The advantage of...  more »
  • Very good view, a little bit of a climb but most people will be able to do it with ease. Also got a nice restaurant up at the top with a view of east nice.  more »

  • This is a must-see in Nice. From the top of the observation deck /chateau you can get a panoramic view of both Promenade Au Anglais and the typical "french riviera feel". To reach the top you can either walk the stairs and enjoy the scenery or you can take the elevator. We walked to the top by the stairs and took the elevator down so we had more energy to explore Old town with!
  • From this place you can probably have the best view on Nice. Absolutely wonderful. It's on the top of the hill, so it's necessary a quite long walk to reach this point, but the view worth the effort.
  • Take the left if you have trouble walking . Its a good climb to the top . The water fall is refreshing to see . Great for photos. A little disappointing that the other water features were not in use . Great views across the dock area and of course the beach below .
  • Nice view to Nice coast line. Sometimes you may even see and hear landing airplanes :)
  • A must-go place during sunrise or sunset, sunset is the best, especially for the view of the sea and coast line. 10 to 15 minutes walk upwards from the bottom, or take the elevator to save time and energy. noon and mid-day are not the best time to go there. There is a cafe bar nearby. Remember to visit the other side as well :)
