If you plan to see the Trophee d'Auguste as it has been pictured in the leaflet, forget it. You can see the monument only from the bottom or climbing it. The picture has been taken from the church tower bell in the town centre. The...More

The Romans picked a great spot to celebrate their victory! Superb panoramas to be taken in. Informative little museum too. Don’t miss it if in La Turbie. Old town is impressive too.
