Views from here are excellent. Calming walk. Fantastic cemetery dating back as far as 1810. Playground for kids. Coffee shop for parents. Walks for dogs.

The best views to Nice (both sides of the hill) and to the sea. Therea are at least three different stais from various places, where you can climb to the hill. The old graveyard is fascinating in odd way.

Yes, There is an underground car park which is underneath the flower market. There is a lift up to the flower market and then the Castle Hill lift would be at the East end.

Lovely open area for children to play. Easy access even with pram - are some steps but would not think too much of a problem
