Castle hill

Castle Hill in Nice overlooks the old city center, the Promenade des Anglais, and across it is the harbor. You can reach it by the Montée du Chateau, or for the faint of heart, there is a lift. Walking to it takes 20 minutes. Up the stairs there is a beautiful view over the city, a nice garden, with plenty of water treatments, waterfalls and shade, which is a real treat with the heat in summer. There is not much left of the castle, only some ruins that Louis XIV destroyed. The bay in Nice, called the Bay of Angels, looks picture perfect from the hill, with the Promenade des Anglais around it, palm trees, pedestrians and joggers skating, running or walking, and then you can see the roofs of the old town of Nice, close together with the small streets that zigzag. The big event of the city is the carnival that takes place February, and you can see the carriages of the celebration from the hill. They carry a lot flowers that are thrown at people. Since you can't see a lot from down below, it is better to climb up to watch the celebration.
