VERY INTERESTING HISTORICAL MONUMENT FROM THE ROMAN EMPIRE !
Jul 2020
Worth the 5 euros. You will project yourself back to the roman empire and enjoy a small movie from that era but the best part is to climb to the top of the Tower and enjoy the view. Don't forget to walk around the small streets of the Village La Turbie.

Monument to Victory
Apr 2020
The Trophee d'Auguste was built in 6 BC to honor Octavius who was Caesar's nephew and would become Emperor Augustus. The monument was built at the frontier between Italy and Gaul. It served as a proclamation of the unity and power of the Roman Empire.

Over 2000 year old monument
May 2019 • Friends
We had the opportunity to show this amazing monument to some dear friends who live in the south of France and have never seen it. It's unreal to be able to climb the steps and look down on the beautiful scenery of the Cote d'Azur. It was built by Augustus Caesar to mark the completion of the trade route. Outstanding!

Interesting for history buffs and view admirers

As a fan of ancient history, I was interested in seeing this site. There’s a little museum here as well with shorter hours than the ruins site. It’s was difficult for my mobility impaired mother, but it is doable.

Nice break from the busy Rivièra
Aug 2017
If you're sitting at the beach and feel in need of some ancient architecture, this is a good pick. Combine it with a stay in La Turbie for lunch/dinner.

Ancient Roman building with stunning view
Jun 2018 • Family
These stunning place was located at rocky cliff on the mountain. It's located between Eze to Nice drive way as well. It was an ancient Roman building at strategic mountain. It's fantastic view to Monaco harbor, Nice and Mediterranean sea area. Traditional village next to Trophee d'Auguste was lovely village with small narrow streets. Recommended.

2000-year old monument in the South of France
Jul 2018 • Family
Interesting Roman monument in La Turbie with a rich history. However, after a couple of photos, not much to do here.

Worth a visit!
Jun 2018 • Family
I love to visit monuments and ruins when on vacation- so I convinced the family to stop in to see the Trophiee d'Auguste. First of all, Turbie is a wonderful village perched atop a mountain overlooking Monaco and the Mediterranean, secondly, the monument is very interesting (you can climb to the top) and third, there is an excellent museum that traces the history of the monument as well as the history of the reconstruction that was done. All in all, this was an excellent side trip during a great day on the Cote d'Azur.

Impressive monument, incredible views
Oct 2017 • Family
The monument was "rebuilt" around 100 years ago. Nevertheless, it's still impressive. You can climb up to a viewing platform at the base of the Doric columns (stairs could be quite steep for someone with mobility difficulties). The views of the surrounding area (especially the coastline) from the reasonably well-maintained site are spectacular. You can see why the Romans built it here! The small on-site museum is also quite infomative.

Photo trick
Dec 2017 • Couples
If you plan to see the Trophee d'Auguste as it has been pictured in the leaflet, forget it. You can see the monument only from the bottom or climbing it. The picture has been taken from the church tower bell in the town centre. The Trophee has been restored very well replacing the missing parts (most of the monument) using Carrara Marble. In the museum a nice movie describe how it was restored.
