Back to the park: my sister claimed she'd never been up here but the minute she saw this view she remembered. It's hard to forget. Jilly asked if there were a lift. Absolutely yes. Thank goodness. In fact this is one time when you really shouldn't be brave and fit and toil up the stairs because when you walk out of the lift there is a very narrow parapet and this is what you see; the Promenade des Anglais and the Baie des Anges at your feet. The airport is on the tip of land almost immediately opposite and when you come into land there's always that slightly unnerving sensation of touching down on water.
(When flying into Nice always ask for a seat on the left side of the plane when looking up the plane towards the cockpit. You can see the whole coast)
