Veer off Boulevard Charles Livon and leave the traffic behind for a moment of peace. Follow your nose uphill. You won't regret it. Best view of 14 July fireworks, too - but normally closed at sunset.

Located next to the wonderful Sofitel hotel, this is where you get a great panoramic view over the city. There's a bus stop nearby. If you are pressed for time, this is a real "must see" (and free).
