Took the free elevator up and walked down. Really great views of different parts of the area as the top gives you a 360 walk around. I relaxed under a tree with a nice breeze for awhile and it was a nice break from the...More

For several days we walked many routes around Nice enjoying what is a very vibrant City. During this time we could always see Castle Hill in the distance rising at the end of the promenade. Fortunately we stumbled across the stairs that climb from the...More

We walked up the steps from the seafront to the viewing platform and then to the park and castle at the top. Lovely views right across Nice and the Cote D’Azure and very pleasant parks and interesting architecture. We walked down through the winding streets...More

Lovely green park with amazing views over Nice and the port. Fairly hard climb up there from the bottom so avoid midday heat but you can get the little road train up there too if thats better.

A must visit when away in Nice. Whilst the walk can be confusing with a relative lack of signposting, the view is worth the confusion, looking over over nice and the sea. Also a stunning waterfall.

There is no entrance fee required, all you have to do is to climb up the steps to the highest level, and there you are awed by the breathtaking view!

The walk up is about 20 minutes and you will have an amazing view all the way up! Definately worth a trip. There are several ways up and down and you can even take a "mini train" both ways.

Hands down, the best views of Nice. You can get to the top via stairs or elevator. The view of Nice is incredible. You can also visit the cemetery, which holds the grave sites of many former French leaders.

Amazing views of Nice and its harbor. Absolutely breath-taking - like something out of a movie. Definitely worth the climb, or alternatively take Le Petit Train up.

Hi! The stairs have no gates, so you can go there any time of the day. Just be careful with the stairs if it’s dark! And note that there are several stairs to the hill.
