Colline du Château
Situated on the hill between the old town and the harbor, this park is a favorite with locals and tourists alike. Surrounded by a typically Mediterranean backdrop of pine trees, carobs, figs, and aloes, the park's impressive waterfall, children's play area, breathtaking views over the city, medieval ruins and Maritime Museum are all part of its appeal. Get here on foot, by car or take the lift from Rue des Ponchettes at the foot of Bellanda Tower.
I have walked to the Chateau from various hotels on the Promenade over the years. It is a great exercise regime for anyone looking to get out for an hour or less and have a spectacular view of Nice harbor and the Promenade. You can hike up the west side via the stairs or go the east route (harbor side) which is a paved road. Food and beverages are served at the top. Also at the top is a great playground and field along with remains of the old castle. Worth the hike. Also it has a great price, free.
The views I enjoyed during my walk through this park were unbeatable! I was a solo traveller in Nice and absolutely loved the time I spent wandering through this park watching families and people of all ages doing the same. If you want to take beautiful photos of the Nice coastline and the Port, the climb up to this park is certainly worth it!

in warm colors and a pretty fountain that catches the beautiful bright Mediterranean sunlight. From the top of an ...
