Nice - the landscape from Cap de Nice to the Promenade des Anglais
From this point at the foot of Mount Boron, the view embraces the Bay of Angels and reaches as far as Cap d'Antibes to the west and the mountains to the north with the well-known shape of the baou de Saint-Jeannet: a grandiose and hypnotic view of Nice whose name is said to come from the Ligurian radical niss (height, summit) and nissa (point of water) which gave Nikaïa.
Castagniers - View of the Var plain
Viewpoint · Castagniers
Castagniers - View of the Var valley
An unobstructed view of the olive groves, the Var valley and the valleys! The name Castagniers comes from the Latin word Castanea which means chestnut tree. Indeed, the early settlement was supplied with water by a spring that flowed near a chestnut tree under which the merchants used to sit.

Colomars - La géologie et les sols
Depuis ce promontoire de Colomars dont le nom dériverait du latin colombarium, le pigeonnier, et de l’ancien provençal lo columbat qui désigne le pigeon, la vue est splendide… Avec une vision à vol d’oiseau, on embrasse le paysage de la plaine et des collines jusqu’au plus hauts sommets.
