Castle Hill is worth a visit with a beautiful walk at the top and w fabulous view of the Mediterranean and the town of Nice.

But a long walk up. Take the free lift/elevator just off the beach promenade. When we were there in July it was very hot but no queues.

If you look for a short escape from the crowded old town, head up the hill for a bit of shade and relaxation. Along the way, you have lovely peeks on the old town and the sea with the promenade on the one side and the harbor on the other side. You will pass by two old graveyards (including a Jewish one), the waterfall, a large children's playground and petanque field. At the top you can get refreshments, postcards etc. There is a public toilet (E0.50) near the playground and there are fountains with potable water.

Views from there are just amazing! You can see all the city of Nice and the port. But with the help of habitants of Nice that I met, I discovered several others places les touristic where views are even more fantastic. Tips: Best views ever: Mont-Boron and Chateau du Mont-Boron! I reallly advice people to go there!

Not a walk in the park as it up stairs, but not a difficult walk for most people. Walking leisurely it took about 20 mins and the cascade was stunning. Be sure to head up to the little confectionary for gelato for 2€. Refreshing for the walk down.
