From this 92m hilltop park, the glittering views of the Vieux Nice spires and Baie des Anges are mesmerising.

The shaded hill and park, at the eastern end of quai des États-Unis, are named after a 12th-century château that was razed by Louis XIV in a fit of pique in 1706 and never rebuilt. To reach the park you can walk up montée Lesage, climb the steps at the eastern end of rue Rossetti or take the ascenseur (lift; per person €1.10; 9am-7pm) under Tour Bellanda.
