Just around the corner from the Castle Hill steeps and I love Nice sign (on way to Port). Busy road, be careful crossing to get closer, but worth seeing as planted into a cliff face. Also near to port so can watch boats

Memorial in the old quarry cliffs of the castle hill just around the bend of the road on your way to the port of Nice, well worth a little visit!

If you are in the area of Nice, it’s a pretty decent monument to check out. We were walking up the coast and saw this monument. We didn’t know what it was at the time but soon discovered it was a monument to fallen soldiers.
