Wonderful & Special
Sep 2019
The ruined fortress is wonderful with spectacular views. Although it is abandoned and in ruins, it has an aura. You can easily imagine knights and damsels and see how it was a very important fortification perched so high up on the cliff. Entrance fee is only 5 euros with an audio guide. It is a great spot for kids to explore and is much larger than it appears.
Rogquebrun as a village is extremely pretty. From Monaco, you take the #100 bus east and get off at the Dachta stop. Walk east a short bit and you will see a stone staircase going up -- take that all the way to the top and you are in the village. It is evocatove and very pretty. There's not much there - a Michelin starred restaurant and not even an ice cream place, but it is very pretty. The Chateau is the highlight. Don't miss it.

Roquebrune castle and Old town
Jul 2019 • Family
Very nice views well worth visiting. With small kids walking is not an option so to go there take bus 21 and get off at Le Lavoir.

Théâtre with a stunning view
Dec 2018 • Friends
Having dined in La Turbie I recommended to my friends that we continue with a short drive along the Corniche to visit this perched village before heading to back to Nice.I had visited earlier in the year and was bowled over at the time and thought it merited a second visit.Having parked the car we first visited the display of hand made Christmas crèches- which showed the creativity of the local residents in turning all types of pasta,empty egg shells and other everyday items into beautiful nativity scenes.Throughout the village santons and other models were on display. We meandered from the main square through the narrow streets and up to the castle which dates from c900AD. The entrance fee of 5 euros is worth it to enjoy the unbelievable panoramic views over the rooftops west towards Menton,east towards Monaco. There is banked seating overlooking the main terrace where plays are staged in the summer months.Definitely worth coming back to watch a production here.

Catch the bus
Oct 2018
Well worth the visit to the lovely old village and chateau. If using public transport don’t get the train, the local Zest bus no. 21 runs between Monaco and Menton and takes you right up to the village. You can then have a leisurely walk down to the sea-front.

Worth visiting with superb views
Jul 2018 • Couples
Perched on a rock on top of the town, we found this castle a worth while visit, obviously mostly ruins but it gave a feel of times gone by and the Grimaldi influence to this area. Open air concerts are held here also. Each area and room has it's display boards which are nice and easy to read (English provided) A pleasant little garden to rest in the shade also, with an extremely welcomed clean toilet room provided!! Not expensive to enter the site. It is a fairly steep walk through the little town and at the castle many steps, so bear this in mind. Roquebrune is one of the gem towns on the South Of France to visit, the only set back if travelling by train it is one hell of a climb up steps from the station and in the heat we have had can be exhausting,so plenty of water with you if you choose this method. Otherwise there are good car park facilities at the edge of the town and some sort of a bus service!

Stunning mountain village
May 2018 • Friends
It was well worth the walk up all those steps to see this stunning little village. If you aren't breathless by the time you get there, you will be when you see the little cobbled streets with tiny, but beautiful, houses. We had a meal in the restaurant which was delicious. The staff and fellow diners were very friendly. We had such a good evening.

A Castle With A View
May 2018 • Couples
You can access the village by the Grande Corniche or by foot to reach this amazing Castle, costs 5 euros to enter.
The castle is dated back to around 970 and was originally built to defend the western border. It was sold a few times once to an Englishman who started to renovate it but then eventually gave it to the town of Roquebrune.
If your interested in historical facts this castle should be on your list, some amazing views here too.

Amazing views, fun outing

This medieval castle definitely is worth a visit. To reach it, there is an easy route uphill from the Roquebrune-Cap-Martin train station (about 20-30 minutes). On the way you will pass the church (only open limited hours, unfortunately) and the town's war memorial. The entrance fee is 5 euros. I visited just after it opened at 10:00 a.m. and there were only two other people there so it really felt like I had the place to myself. The signage is well designed and there is an English language pamphlet. The site is not huge so it does not require a large time commitment but you will want to linger over the views from the various vantage points - east, west, out to sea, and the village below. The castle has been restored thoughtfully, with silhouettes of people set up in the various rooms to help you visualize what it would have been like hundreds of years ago, and excellent details added like straw on the floor and a large chain in the prison cell. There is one steep set of stairs to the top level if that is a factor for people with mobility issues but most of it is easy to get around. There also are at least two cats that might surprise you when you turn a corner (or they might show up in your photos).

The view will stop you in your tracks!
Apr 2018 • Family
This is a wonderful castle to explore in the medieval town of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin. Just standing on the top of the castle, looking out at all the villas with their colorful shutters and little balconies are pretty enough. The views are incredible and afterwards you can scroll down for a great meal at the local Italian restaurant, or coffee at the shop on the mini square with spectacular views. It's about 5Euros per adult to enter the castle,but really worth it.

What a view
Sep 2017 • Solo
I visited during the "journées du patrimoine" and I was not disappointed. The castle itself is mice but the view you get when you're at the top makes it an amazing spot! The scenery is just breathtaking. Of course you get to see the sea but also all the way to Monaco or the Cap Martin! Beautiful and peaceful!
