|About these ratings|
Castle Hill, or Colline du Château as it's called in French, is more "hill" than "castle." Most of it has crumbled away, but travelers and travel experts alike recommend climbing the nearly 300 feet of stairs to the top of the hill for the sweeping panorama of Nice and the Baie des Anges (Bay of Angels). It also makes a good spot to take your kids; up top, you'll find a playground and ample space for picnics. If you don't want to climb, you can take a lift that will carry you about 75 percent of the way.
