    I took tiny town train up to hill which was a good solution. Audio with headsets was not the best voice quality but what I heard was interesting. View from hill is magnificent  more »

    A must visit place, located on the mountain, near the beach, the old town and the port. The view is amazing from over there. To avoid the stairs, there's also an elevator that goes from the base of the mountain to its top, for free! ;)

    Really great views, however the elevator closes at 7:50pm, and they lock the gates to the outside. A lot of people got stuck, myself included, and had to climb over a barrier to get out at 9pm. Would have been nice to know this was the case before walking down all those steps.

    A lovely park to explore. This is an archaeological site where you can explore the remnants of the castle. In summer the large waterfall (it is an artificial one) is a refreshing delight and you can spot it again looking up from the Cours de Saleya. In winter the hinterland peaks are covered in snow. There are scenic paths winding around the south end of the park, at the edges. There are views (east) overlooking the port and (west) along the Promenade Anglais out to Antibes and beyond. Tip: take the elevator to the top (accessed via a pedestrian tunnel on the west side). Its a leisurely walk back down on steps or roadway.

    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!
