Fort Mont Alban

In case you want to visit a fortress that is usually closed to public and speak/understand a bit of French (the guides do not speak any English), this is the perfect location to visit in the month of August. This building has been here since 1560 and has got a unique view over Nice and it’s surroundings. The Duke of Savoy – Emmanuel Philibert, gave the order for this fortress to be built by the architect Domenico Ponsello. Join the guided tour and learn about the daily lives of the soldiers that lived here. Meeting point: in front of the Fortress, take bus #14, and get out at “Chemin du Fort“.
Access for children older than age 7 only, and free of entrance. For adults the price of the 1h30 guided tour is EUR 5, and for students EUR 2,50 (also if you are below age 26 or a pensioner). No wheelchair access.
Possible to book online until the 16th of September. First come, first served! Or if you prefer, you can also buy them in the Old Town of Nice at the address: Centre du Patrimoine, 1 Place Pierre Gautier, 06300 Nice
