Rue des Ponchettes
Rue de Foresta
Montée Montfort
06300 - NICE

The city’s original site, the Castle Hill once boasted a reputedly impregnable citadel that was entirely dismantled by the soldiers of the French King Louis XIV in 1706.
Truly a maze of greenery that has become popular for its cool undergrowth and surprising waterfall, this wonderful place for strolling offers a wonderful viewpoint over Baie des Anges, Old Nice and the Port (orientation table). Spectacular lighting at night.

Access on foot from OId Nice and Place Garibaldi, in an Art-Deco lift or by steps (‘escalier Lesage’) at the end of Quai des États-Unis or on the Little Tourist Train.
Opening times : 8:30-18:00 du 01/10 au 31/03 et 8:30-20:00 du 01/04 au 30/09.
