A visit to the city of Nice is an easy day trip from Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc and Château Saint-Martin & Spa. Presiding over the ancient city is the Tour Saint-François— a 13th-century tower that has opened this year as a permanent attraction and lookout point. Ambitious visitors are welcome to climb the tower’s 288 steps to reach the top for a marvellous 360˚ view over the beautiful Mediterranean city. From up top, one can observe the magnificent red roof topography set against the pebbly coastline’s meeting with the turquoise blue sea. It is a setting straight out of a Cézanne painting, and you can experience it with your own eyes for the price of a ticket and a steep 50-metre ascent. We don’t have to tell you it’s worth it.
