We missed it, and did the climb all the way up. We must have been panting like the sausage dogs on leashes that greeted us at the top, so only climb if you're really fit or are determined to get buns of steel.
It's really worth the climb for the view up the top, though. The gardens were busy with families, teenagers lounging around and the French playing petanque (they were nice enough to invite me for a throw, which I'm sure they immediately regretted).
On one side there is a view of the Promenade des Anglais, and on the other, the port. There is art all around - a waterfall feature, architecture, as well as mosaic tile patterns on the ground.
It's worth setting aside a couple of hours to fully enjoy this attraction.
