  • Amazing view of Nice with a beautiful waterfall to check out. Steps are not bad unless you normally require assistance for walking or are in a wheelchair. If you only go to one place other than the beach in Nice, make it here!
  • This is the best way to oversee Nice. You can come up via the road from both the Old Nice side or Port side, or you can scale the steps up the beach side by the start of the Promenade du Anglaise. There's a cafe and souvenir shop at the summit.
  • Outstanding views with a nice sea breeze. Numerous steps to the top provide some exercise. There is a nice waterfall as well. Signage alerts you to the history of the buildings. Snack and souvenir shops are present. A must see!
  • I have been there once. It is very nice to climb the stairs and reach the top, from where you have a unique view of the NICE city.
  • Absolutely superb view of Nice from left, right and centre! Take the free elevator up for convenience and you are greeted with the view of the beach along the west side, the port on the east and the azur blue ocean everywhere else. A definite must go in Nice! Just beware of the lift opening hours.
