The cemetary sits on top of the hill at the back of Old Town and has some impressive memorials. If a cemetary can be regarded as a place for tourists this is one of the best as the memorials are very elaborate and somewhat extreme....More

Whilst at the top Castle Hill we stumbled upon this large and very, very beautiful cemetery. The views of the city and surrounding mountains are great. The stone work and graves are very grand and it's a peaceful place. Lots of interesting statues and flowers....More

An interesting historical cemetery with a large Jewish part. Also, great views towards the Old Town and the centre. The descent towards the Old town is one of the most beautiful areas not chock-full of tourists.

Had a very nice walk/hike here from our hotel right next door (Hotel Suisse). There are several viewing spots to get wide views of the city and ocean. Well worth it, especially on a clear day.

This is a weird, albeit beautiful cemetery. It is located in the hills overlooking the city and the ocean with views I've never seen from such a place. It shows difference in people even after dead with big and small graves and prominent locations for...More

The cemetery is split by denomination / faith and have very elaborate and stylized tombs and graves. Many interesting inscriptions and fantastic opportunities for photos, especially if the weather is interesting. I went with my kids (13 and 7) who found it very interesting. I...More

This cemetery is an out-of-the-ordinary experience. The tombs are highly elaborate and many have sculptures more often found in museums. The cemetery and immediate surroundings also provide absolutely stunning views of the Baie de Nice and Promenade des Anglais, and beyond, as well as the...More
