Small road leading to the parking lot, then a small walk towards the edge of the cliff. The view of the coast is very impressive!

Whilst my partner and I were in Monaco, we wanted to find a vantage point that overlooked the city, and I knew there was a place due to AS Monaco's football Instagram account where they announce a new player overlooking the city and the football...More

This place located on the top of the Monaco. From the Nice it took us approximately 20 min to reach this amazing place. Unfortunately entrance to the fort and observation deck was closed. However, view from the mountain is outstanding, overlooking the bay of Monaco....More

Twisty ride, but some of the best views in the Cote d'Azur. Stunning views of Monaco all the way to Italy.

We drove from Monte Carlo and wanted to hike up Tete Chien. The walk did not have to be too long, we just wanted to walk uphill and have an amazing view. So we drove to Cap d'Ail and found a parking there. We had...More

From left to right and even backwards you get a brilliant view on the hilly natureside of the French Rivièra. On good days you can see all the way up to the Esterel mountains and even Corsica. A must see, even if it is for...More

If you stay in Monaco and you want to get a perfect overview to Monte Carlo and Monaco go the Tete de Chien. It takes about 30 minutes drive and it is a curvy route but at the end you will have a wonderful and...More

This is a must do this end of the coast. On a clear sunny day you can see from Italy back to the cape before St Tropez. The view from there is breathtaking. Monaco and Cap d'Ail are just below. You can actually take a...More

This place is a pure gem that is suprisingly unexplored by so many travellers. It is the best view of Monaco you can find. Buy a bear/wine in a local shop in La Turbie, drive 5 mins out of La Turbie and find a space...More

Hiring a taxi in Nice for targeted trips (7 Replies)
Hi, I'll be travelling to Nice for about a week in April with a family of four. I am an avid photographer and would like to be at certain view points at certain times of the day along the Riviera during our stay (specifically views of Eze and Monaco from the Grande and Moyenne Corniche, Tete de Chien, etc.).

You'll need a car or hire a driver. Will be 200 - 300 Euro, I guess. Every day. Driving and parking is easy. 3 hours of normal taxi will be the price of a Peugeot 208, I guess.
