terrific views all the way up and a lift for the ones who don't want the walk. Well worth the effort.

Make sure you build yourself up first, lots of gym sessions maybe?? before walking up the stairs to the top from the main road. I did it but had to have lots of little breaks before getting to the top. Worth it though the view at the top is sensational!

the view is beautifull to both sides of nice.. the promenade and the harbour. Be carefull with the lift outside the season the last ride is at 18:30 and the stairs are really exhausting.

Enjoyed the walk up the ruined castle to see the views of Nice, the waterfall and the park. We then walked down the other side to the harbour. Very relaxing. Great little coffee shop with cake much cheaper than in the coffee shops at the bottom! treat yourself!

We visited Castle Hill whilst the sun was setting to see Nice at a beautiful time of day. It was indeed a beautiful view and an amazing sunset but it was very disappointing to see so many rats around in broad day light (6 separately in a 20 minute visit). We pretty much ran back down the steps to get... More

We got a free ride in the elevator (though it was very small and only holds 6-7 people). We walked back down. Interesting and quiet with nice views.

Worth visiting if only to get a super panoramic picture of Nice and the beach below. Not a hard climb, however there is an elevator you can take just off the promenade entrance if you need it.

At first I wasn't keen on the steep climb up but the view from the top made it all worth it. If you continue to go up there is a wonderful park for the family and a cafe where you can relax with a view. On the backside of the park you can walk down towards the port. It was... More
