Before we got there, we thought visiting the Trophee would just a quick stop in a jam packed day. Ended up spending more than 2 hours to soak in everything this site has to offer. The entrance/ticket can be difficult to locate since the surrounding area is like a maze. But once you get, enjoy the views on the way... More

The ruins are spectacular and awesome. Interesting history as well. The museum, which is tucked back in the corner, is one of the better ones I've ever seen. Incredibly well done with excellent interactive exhibits. Do not miss this one.

A short detour off the road to Monaco - a very interesting and well preserved Roman monument, surprisingly well preserved/restored for a triumphal monument! It takes a while to figure out where the entrance is as the signs on what looked to us as the main entrance were contradictory (one left one right) and both wrong as they led to... More

This really should be open all year, although you can see a lot from the town and the corniche drive. The view to the east and south are not to be missed. Great history!

I always seek out anything to to with Roman history when visiting different countries. This monument stands out high on a prominent hill as you drive towards Nice from Monte Carlo. Worth the side trip to walk up and visit the ancient structure. Like many Roman monuments, those conquered didn't think too much of them and this one has been... More

Warning! We were there on the last Tues. of December and everyone was blocked from getting even a distant view of this terrific sight. Why? No explanation, just a garden near it and chains blocking every entrance. Many disappointed tourists this Christmas week!! Scandalous to keep such a 2 B.C. sight from being seen!

What a spectacular monument. Mind you whatever the Roman's did was done in spectacular fashion. Although most of the trophy has been torn down over the centuries there was an aggressive effort to, at the very least, restore it. Even in its present state it is amazing and one can only imagine how grand it once was. There are stairs... More

A monument in a small, little village East of Nice near the Italian border overlooking Monaco. This monument is very old originating in the time of Caesar Augustus. I like that the architect that held rebuilt this beautiful monument left it partially unfinished so you the viewer can finish in your own mind. We went to the museum and looked... More

This is an interesting piece of history worth visiting if you are anywhere near Monaco. Parking is at a premium so it's probably best to arrive early or be prepared to walk a long way. The views down to the principality are almost worth the visit alone though learning about the Roman's conquest tribute is fascinating. Cheers!
