  • 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).

  • 375 meters above Nice, discover the domes equipped with more powerful telescopes. The guide is very interesting and small questions to test your knowledge on our sky. You will see not two visiting hours pass. For 6 euros you'll for your money.

  • Tour group of 30 people on a magnificent site overlooking the Bay of angels and the city of Nice. Book in advance on the internet. The price of 6 euros is quite reasonable but attention not credit cards or cheques accepted vacation. Walk in the Park to rally the different buildings, stables, House of astronomers, the main Observatory is a marvel, especially when the guide open which should end in September: hurry up and go.

  • 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.
