PAR­CO DEL­LA COL­LI­NA DEL CA­STEL­LO / Da qui si go­de una vi­sta ec­ce­zio­na­le sul­la Ba­ia de­gli An­ge­li, i tet­ti del­la Vec­chia cit­tà e le Preal­pi del Sud. Il ca­stel­lo, mu­ni­to d’una cit­ta­del­la, fu di­strut­to dal­le trup­pe di Lui­gi XIV nel 1706. Ve­ge­ta­zio­ne, sot­to­bo­schi e una ca­sca­ta ne fan­no un luo­go idea­le per pas­seg­gia­re con il­lu­mi­na­zio­ni spet­ta­co­la­ri du­ran­te la se­ra. Si rag­giun­ge a pie­di dal­la Vec­chia Niz­za e da Piaz­za Ga­ri­bal­di, in ascen­so­re o pren­den­do il tre­ni­no tu­ri­sti­co. From he­re, ex­cep­tio­nal views of the Bay of An­gels, the roofs of the Old Town and the sou­thern Alps can be en­joyed. The ca­stle, equip­ped wi­th a ci­ta­del, was de­stroyed by Louis XIV’s ar­mies in 1706. The ve­ge­ta­tion, bru­sh­wood and wa­ter­fall ma­ke it an ideal lo­ca­tion for a stroll and it is beau­ti­ful­ly lit in the eve­nings. It can be rea­ched on foot from the Old Town and Ga­ri­bal­di Squa­re, ei­ther by ele­va­tor or tou­ri­st train.
