The Romans picked a great spot to celebrate their victory! Superb panoramas to be taken in. Informative little museum too. Don’t miss it if in La Turbie. Old town is impressive too.

Trophee d'Auguste is well worth the entrance fee and a visit for the views alone. Situated high on the hill in the old town of La Turbie the views and the tour are excellent.

I would hit call this a "must see" but it's worth spending time here if you can. The museum is untended and gives enough information about the monument to Caesar Augustus in 6 BC. Due to restoration the Trophy is to the point that you...More
