The Hill of the Castle


The Hill of the Castle overlooks the heart of Nice (the old town on one side and the port on the other). Few people know that the history of Nice began here, when the Greeks settled there in the 3rd century BC. This site is the essential place to learn about the long and magnificent history of the city, in particular thanks to its archaeological excavations and its fortifications still intact in some places.

More over, the tour includes the visit of the graves of some famous people resting in the cemetery and ends with a walking tour through the atypical garden adorned with a majestic waterfall. From this unique location, you will be dazzled by the panorama of the city while listening to the stories of your guide.
