“Another, even better lookout in walking distance from the house - this time with views over Nice on one side and over Villefranche, Beaulieu, Cap Ferat and the Mediteranean on the other. A noon cannon is still fired every day from this old fort! Said to have been requested in the 19th century by a British colonel whose wife was always late for lunch, it reminds us of the long history of Nice and the Riviera as a tourist destination. The surrounding parkland is great for running, playing boules, etc. or just getting away from the city. It is possible to walk to the center of picturesque Villefranche in 45MIN, longer if one takes the spectacular Chemin du Littoral along the coast.”

“Imaginée par le sculpteur Sacha Sosno, la “Tête Carrée” est le symbole-clé de l’architecture contemporaine de la ville. Haute de 30 mètres et large de 14, ce monument-sculpture n’est pas accessible au public et accueille les bureaux de la bibliothèque municipale Louis Nucéra. ”

“This is a super cool place to see. Not well known and guided tours only in french, it is still worth a visit. Only small tours are offered at certain days. Be sure to book your tickets ahead online!”
