  • A nice discovery, the host is very nice, two people with us (a group of 30 people) after some explanations on the situation of the place and the construction we are leaving on a 2 km trail around (allow good shoes) Discover the buildings then the instruments. The researcher who guides us answer all questions. In addition we have an impressive view of Nice and the back country. Must book the tour on the website and 2 hours of visit

  • This Observatory founded in the nineteenth century had remained abandoned since the post-war period, when mid-60s it decided the restoration and the resumption of activities, under the direction of the astronomer Bernard Milet. The great dome must its architecture to Garnier, who signed the Paris opera and Monte Carlo, the metal structure of the dome is the work of Gustave Eiffel. The site itself is Heavenly, and offers a splendid panorama. Visit of former instruments (the Observatory as a research unit having been moved to Calern, above Grasse, for reasons of light pollution).

  • Good value for money, but the guide refused to summarize the tour in English, plus we did not get a look at the stars and honestly that's all we came for.
  • The view is good but for stranger like me it's not good! The guide speak in french and it's completely BORING! And we can't see the stars
  • You can see the hold city and very great view. However, you have to make a visit to access.
  • Accurate information
  • Exciting tour. A journey into the history and space in a unique setting. The best view on the beautiful and Nice Cote d'Azur.
