I bit of a steep walk to get up to (but there are elevators too). It's a big park paths winding around offering wonderful views over the city, the port and the sea. The waterfall is really nice too. Lots of things to see. Could easily spend a few hours up here. There are a couple places to eat too or bring up a picnic lunch.

We took the steps up to the top beside the Hotel Suisse and it's a relatively easy stroll to the top and yes the views are great well worth a visit.
Would recommend taking a picnic the shop wasn't that great.

Wow wow wow! The best place to take in the gorgeous water and building views in Nice :) although there are some stairs to get to the top you don't need to be fit or young, it would be suitable to most people. There is also a beautiful park and waterfall at the top and a a few cafés and restaurants. So glad we did this and it's free!

After 4 visits to Nice, we finally came here! the other visits were in the summer, and it was hot, and I wanted to maximize time on the water.

We were there in late November, on a brisk, sunny day. Walked to the top from the old town, and took pictures along the way. Lots of places to stop and rest/sit. On the top there is a cafe, playground and park.

Gorgeous, and historical - worth doing. We then walked down the other side and ended up in the Port.

A must. (you can take the elevator if needed)

The view from the top is fac. Great to take pictures. However don't be fooled by the name. There is no castle :) there are only the ruins of a church left. Despite this, the view is worth the walk
