“A sight to behold from the top!”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

Not to be missed, the view is amazing! If you are physically fit enough to take the steps up the hill, go for it! If you can't, there's a lift that can take you up, but you have to try to take the steps down.

“A must”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

The. Views both ways are brilliant. Not that challenging walk up, gives you view options. Nice little cafe on top. Good way of getting to the Port.

“nice views but directions on hill itself could be better”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

We walked up the hill on a reasonably warm afternoon - you could see the town of Nice (some photos of the Negresco were taken from here that are on postcards). The paths on the hill are quite narrow and at times steep so allow time to walk around as it does take a while to get to the top (but the walk is not hard). As there are several routes, we saw a couple of direction signs that were pointing in opposite direction to where the actual final destination was so you would get to the eventual destination in the way the signs pointed, but you would be taking the 'scenic' route. If you do not have much time, you may be better off walking to mid point of the walk where you get the view of Nice to get the idea, then around the hill to the port. The port area was very picturesque and made a bigger impression on us.

“Lovely walk, fantastic views.”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

On a nice day it is well worth walking to the top of Castle Hill, you get an interesting walk with lots to see on your way up and stunning views once you reach the top. The walk is not hard and there are several routes you can take. An excellent way to while away a couple of hours.
