  • We was in March in Nice. It wasn’t hot and busy at this time. To get up we take a lift because we travel with 5 years old child and it was challenging to him. Lift is free you can find it very easy th...  more »

  • Some stunning views over to the port. Children's play park that is well equipped and always seems to be busy. Some old ruins that are being excavated. There is a cafe that isn't that pricey, in Nice terms, but is also slightly lacking. If you are in need of a lift there is a free one underneath the stairs, however the walk up the stairs is quite scenic.
  • If you are coming with stroller or need lift, then make sure you come from beach side. You get stunning view of Nice from here, nice garden on top as well but view is what you will love. It was very windy so we couldnt spend much time here but worth the hassle of coming here.
  • A must-visit while in Nice. A short walk up the hill gives you a great view over the city and to the Mediterranean sea. No real services up there, so remember to pack enough water when you go - a small store (cash only) sometimes open on the top tho. A smallish playground for kids. Lots of tourists. If you cannot make the walk, use the white "tourist train" - it will take you to the upper parking lot. Good for photos - lots of very "Instagrammable" spots.
  • They rightly say that most wonderful things in life are for free. This place is beautiful. You can take the lift which the near the flower market or could climb up the hill. The climb is worth, as the view is breathtaking. There is a small eatery so is a good idea to carry your own food and water. A wonderful place to see the city view or even have a one day picnic or outing. The place looks amazing at all times of the day and gives you a view of the beach.
  • Very pleasant place with amazing view of Promenade. For the best view go in the morning, take some snacks with you and enjoy the view of blue Mediterranean sea with friends, family, kids. Nobody in Nice will recognise the place as castle view. Ask for "Lu Chateau".
