“Definitely must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

The best panorama view of Nice! You can go up to the castle hill by lots of steps in front of the seaside or have a bike ride from the back of the hill. From the top you will see beautiful bay view with turquoise sea and long sandy beach. Take binokulars with you!

“Great views and workout!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

Walked up with our 8 year old son - the waterfall halfway up and gelato at the top were highlights for him! The views from the top are unparalleled - the coast, the hills and the harbour. Everything is a postcard. It was not too busy early July, we went up mid-morning. There is a mix of things to see - the views obviously, there is a playground for children, a small food concession, a gift shop, the waterfall, there is an archeological site which is now being restored... there is so much to see, it is a must to do this trek up up up when in Nice!

“Beautiful and Historic Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

Castle Hill was originally the site of the castle that protected Nice from Pirates in ancient days. Today it is a park that is well used by citizens and tourists. You can walk up (not too awful) or there is an elevator from the waterfront drive. There are ongoing archeological excavations on this site, and a restaurant at the top. The views of the Cote d'Azur are wonderful.

“Great view”

Great view and decent workout to see it. Good way to work off that breakfast croissant. On a clear day it is just beautiful.
