“Ancient site with a modern twist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Stunning views from the top of the whole city and the promenade. The stairs are not hard to climb and there are several stops and benches before you reach the top. The new and modern waterfall feature is a must see, especially when the lights are turned on at night. Great place to catch the sunset. I especially recommend visiting the Jewish (Israel) cemetery. It resembles a mini citadel and can been seen from the street level below. Truly spectacular

“Awesome views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

A nice walk from the Vielle Ville to the castle. Beware - there are no toilets open in the winter! As a result people used the side of the toilet building as their own personal toilet. Why can't the French be more accomadating to an obvious need!

“Dont Forget”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

You get nice views of the city, Alps, and the long beach.. Dont miss it. There are many ways to get to the top but the easiest is to take the lift situated at foot of the hill.
