“Great view”

Ranked #5 of 63 things to do in Antibes

Attraction details
Reviewed July 14, 2013

As we were staying in a hotel very close to this we decided to come up the hill and see what all the fuss was about. You could walk up but we drove up to the top where there is a small chapel and a large car park. There are quite a few tour buses that go up there just for a few minutes at a time for people to take photos of what is a great view so try to time it when they are not there.

Amazing views from here right across the bay and the whole surrounding area. There is a free car park.

We walked up to the lighthouse using the old horse path. It was rocky and not suitable for anyone who wasn't in fair condition to walk. Once we got there the area and view was nice but nothing special. We walked back using the road and quickly got lost. However if you just keep walking down hill you'll eventually get to the water and the road that will lead back to the hotel. I'd recommend it for a nice walk rather than the view.

I drove up both during the day and for the spectacular sunset. There is plenty of free parking. Stunning views over Nice and west towards Cannes. The small chapel (free entry) is worth a short visit - most of the memorials are nautical in flavour and some are pretty unusual. Rock fans should clock the small black wall plaque high on the left as you enter and identify the two song quotes on it. No toilets or other facilities. Bring your own cocktails!

if you are visiting Antibes / Juan Les Pins this spot has definitely the best views in the area. a major panoramic view of Old Antibes. We walked from Juan Les Pins, which took about 40 minutes due to the significant gradient. you would need a map to find it. alternatively it would be a very easy car journey, or there are a number of local buses that go there
