Why locals love it

The Castle's Hill is the most important place to be seen in Nice and you can't leave the city without having been up there to have a look at the breath taking views on the whole city and the sea coast.
You will also find there: gardens, a park, a kids playground, a little café, some ruins of the ancient Cathedrale from the middle ages..

Why you should visit it

Locals go there to relax sitting on the grass, to have picnics, to meet friends..
It is a peaceful place.

You will not see any Castle there as Louis XIV decided to destroy it (and the fortifications too) to turn that place into a beautiful park, when his army got Nice in 1701.

But you will be able to see the cute waterfall :)

Special tip

There are few ways to reach the top of the hill.
The easiest is to take the lift (free).
