“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

This is a must see when traveling to Nice. The view of the city and beaches are absolutely stunning. I went here at night and the day. The views are great.

“Dome by Eiffel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

The Dome of the Cote d'Azur Observatory is a masterpiece of Eiffel. Not open very often. You need to check for the Opening days with guided visits

“Excellent for an educational afternoon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Perched on the heights of Mont Boron, you will get an unbelievable view on the bay and surroundings areas. You can get there by car or by bus from Gare Riquier,the website had all details.
Make sure you are equipped with water, sun protection, hat and comfortable shoes as the walk can be steep in places.
The guides that take you around this 2 hour trek are very knowledgeable and pleasant. Only opens at certains times on certain days. Check the website for details.
