The Observatoire is placed on top of a backstanding hills near Nice city. From up above, all the seashore is visible, the blue Mediterran... very nice walking trip to those who love nature and animal wild life...

The boulevard and the sea-view was marvelous; there are also many chairs to sitdown. Always very busy. Don't forget to look back to the famous old buildings.

This is a historic and special place to visit.the gardens are Mediterranean and the Observatory itself is fascinating. Eiffel was involved in the design of the observatory.
The guide was excellent, giving detailed explanations of how the telescope worked in this rectangular observatory.
