“Took the little train from the Promenade to here”

After a long walk on the Promenade de Angelis I took a little tourist train to this location. I took my best pictures in Nice in this location. A great view of the coast!

“Great Panoramic view of Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

Get the lift just outside the flower market and go to the top of castle hill, where you get a great panoramic view of Nice and the harbour. We had lunch in the little cafe at the top, which is lovely on a hot day.

“Wonderful way to spend a day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

We went to castle hill with our toddler (2 years old) and we were trying to get some space and a park but out of the sun. We loved it there and so did he. There is a nice cafe outdoors where there are some kids things to go on and a little playground and there is a larger playground with lots of shade and benches too. The atmosphere is very chilled out there and there is a lot of space. We would definately recommend it to anyone, especially families as there are a lot of families there and it's a lovely spot.

“Great views”

A lovely walk with good views across the Bay of Angels, a very pretty waterfall near the summit. A pleasant way to spend a couple of hours.

“Lovely. A refuge from the crowds and heat.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

Take the free elevator (signposted from Hotel Suisse) and save your legs for the top. Beautiful views, lots of places to sit and the spray from the cascading fountains is refreshing.
