We walked up once from the ocean side up the stairs and the second time through the old town. The views are awesome and this is so close to the old town I would suggest climbing up the hill before dinner for a great view and to get up your appetite. If you are like me I never realized that...

Beautiful views and a great fountain. Quite a steep walk but worth it, think there is a road train that goes up as well.

From up the hill you can see on the port side and on the town side and you have a beautiful view along the coast. There is even an elevator to take you up and that is even for free!

This was a walk up some steps, but there was plenty to see. There were good views as well as the cascade (see from below).

Found ourselves on the top of the hill a couple times during our two week stay. We took the leisure route from the port side the first time and the stairs the second time. It is a great place to gain perspective of the city. - Note there is an elevator for those who need it. You have to pay... More

The climb up is very much worth it. The panorama is the best in Nice and you can get a great sunset from up there. It's a big open space which is great to relax or for kids to have fun.

This is worth the climb (or you can take the tourist train to the top but be mindful that your time is limited to 15 minutes). Perfect view across the city, Old Town, Promenade des Anglais and the Baie des Anges.
