There are many things to do in Nice, Provence in France but one that should be at the top of the list is a visit to the Parc du Chateau for the spectacular view. The Chateau, itself has been gone since 1706. Nowadays, Le Chateau refers to the 92 meter hill that towers above the city of Nice in France.
The Parc du Chateau is located on top of the hill and there is a playground for children to have fun, many flowers and shady walks through the trees. An artificial waterfall built in the 18th century and ruins of the 11th century castle are the historical reminders.
The views from the Parc du Chateau are outstanding, one can see the winding, narrow streets of Old Town in Nice, the more modern city of Nice, Provence and further out the deep blue Mediterranean Sea washes along the sands of the Baie des Anges. There are 213 steps to reach the Parc du Chateau in Nice, Provence or for the less energetic an elevator is available.
