We absolutely loved this place! You Climb up some stairs and have the greatest few over Nice that you can imagine. The waterfall is amazingly beautiful. On the very top you have a little café where you can have drinks. Be careful with those guys and their pigeons. They will not tell you that it costs money but after you... More

TIP: Use the rear entrance by the very large war memorial overlooking the port area. The steps are no where near as steep as the ones overlooking the promenade, beach and old and new towns.

Walk along the Promenade des Anglais all the way up to the Castle Hill and down into the Vieux Port. At the top of the hill pause to enjoy the stunning view of the Baie des Anges of Nice

There was an elevator to take one to the summit but the line was rather long. The wait was worth it as the view of Nice and the sea was really interesting. There was a rather interesting park and a waterfall at the summit. I suggest you walk down to get other perspectives of the city.

fairly easy climb up and you get the most awesome view of Nice. City of Nice has made one of the best city parks anywhere. Man made fountain and waterfall is nice. Have a coffee at the snack bar at the top.

Every visit should include a visit to Colline du Chateau. Take the elevator up (close to hotel Swiss and Le Perouse), it is free. Walk around and explore the views. Walk down to Old Nice.
