If you like great views and being outside, this is the place for you. It is quiet a walk (stairs) to the top. We rented bikes and it was not that difficult. It is possible to drive but the road is very narrow. There is a park and graveyards worth visiting near the top. Fountains are provided for water and refreshments are available to purchase. Be sure to take your camera. It was cool and breezy..even for late June.

We got the train up to the castle from the seafront 8 euros each return which is pretty good, takes you around some of the old town headphones are there to listen to history etc. The views are amazing and you can see for miles. Its not too small and there is a fair bit to walk around at the top, including a fair few places for sunbathing! Would definitely recommend to others.

this site had a great views and a nice waterfall. The free elevators are a nice option for weary travellers.

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.
