There are a couple of trails to get to the top of the hill, all are not too challenging. You'll have nice views over beach and port side of nice. There's also a children's play area for families to enjoy.

Racing to the top is a good addition to the morning run along the Promenade. Great view from the top, nice small park with a playground. I was hoping for a charming cafe on the top to enjoy a coffee and a croissant after the climb, but alas. There's one but not very appealing. Good exercise though.

When we started to climb the starirs leading to the castle, we thought we were going to see a real castle, even though it was not visible from behind the hill. As we reached the top of the hill, we were so charmed by the wonderful view, that we forgot the reason why we were there... But after a while... More

Fabulous views and well worth the effort to get there, although there is a free lift service. Cascade of water impressive but whole area worth the effort

It's worth the climb to get a very good look at all of Nice and the Riveria from atop this surmountable hill.

After meeting several tourists who were complaining about being exhausted from walking the stairs, I feel like I have to mention it: There actually is a free elevator to the top. That being said, walking the stairs is nice, too - especially on the way down when the view is in front of you. And the view is excellent! On... More

Hard walk up steps, the effort is worth the reward. From one side the over view of Nice and the mountains, the other side, the port and Marina. Rough cafe at the top, but best coffee tasted in Nice so far. Great location for a morning stroll.

Nice walk to enjoy in the morning. Obviously has amazing views. Was pretty easy to get to the top. Afterwards it was fun finding a spot for lunch in the oldtown.
