Not an easy walk if you are physically limited. Nothing in France allows for handicap access. Beautiful views of the city and coastline. great waterfall. Fun place for little kids to run off steam.

Quite a stroll, but well worth it. There's no rush though, so it's ideal to take an early evening walk up and enjoy the views below. The signboards aren't very clear, but it doesn't really matter; you end up down in the village any way...More

Really you need to go here simply beautiful view of Nice. Go late afternoon to evening for best sunset view over the ocean. Also see I Love Nice sculpture.

It is definitely worth a walk up the stairs to the top to have a panoramic view of Nice including the port. There is a lift available too! A cafe at the top & gardens! Unfortunately no toilets available when I was there.

Yes, There is an underground car park which is underneath the flower market. There is a lift up to the flower market and then the Castle Hill lift would be at the East end.

Lovely open area for children to play. Easy access even with pram - are some steps but would not think too much of a problem
