It was very hot the day we went, but totally worth the walk and climb up the stairs for the amazing views. Don't turn around and go back down once you see the panorama from the top, explore the paths and the park. Keep climbing - there is a waterfall, an archaeological dig site, and lots of other cool things... More

For great views over Nice, this is the place to go. There are a few ways you can go up to the hill. I went via the seaside promenade. Not that hard of a walk up and you have several panorama viewpoints along the way. On top there is a park with some activities, especially for kids. There are also... More

The first settlers (Greeks and them Romans) lived here up on the Castel Hill, when the Greeks used to call this place "Nissa" (that's where the city derives its name "Nice" from). If you're looking for evidence, go on up! From the top -- Beautiful views of Nice and the Mediterranean. You can see the airport, you can even see... More

Only got the Mrs up that hill with the promise of an icecream, lovely waterfall and general a pleasant park to be in. Not too much of a tourist trap. Quite a few locals around

I climbed up on several occasions and at different times of the day. There are various routes to get up some easier than others. The gates open at 8am and it's worthwhile going up at that time as there are fewer people, that said it doesn't get over crowded. The cemetary is interesting as is the waterfall. The main appeal...

Walked up to take in the views of Nice. Lovely panoramic views of the coast. Well worth the walk up the stairs in the heat.

Walking up this hill serves two useful purposes: 1) gets you away from the heavy tourist crowds a little, and 2) leads to one of the best vantage points to soak in the city and coastline or Nice. Definitely worth the exercise!

This is the must see place in Nice. With the view from the top, great place to see Nice. Remember to have your camera and an extra memory card. Don't forget the cemetery. Cool head stones.

The views from the top of Castle Hill are beautiful. There are plenty of places to walk around so you can definitely spend a few hours here. You can take the stairs or the elevator to get to the top. There is no charge for the elevator or anything. We waited maybe 10 minutes or so to get on an... More
