Cote d’Azur Observatory (Observatoire de la Cote d’Azur) Tours

Cote d’Azur Observatory (Observatoire de la Cote d’Azur)
Designed by Gustave Eiffel of the Parisian tower fame together with Charles Garnier, the architect of Monte Carlo Casino, Côte d'Azur Observatory (Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur) opened in 1878 and is still a working astronomy laboratory. Resembling a Greek temple, fronted with Ionic columns but topped by a 92-ton dome covering what was once the largest telescope in the world, the observatory is built on a floating platform that originally allowed the telescope to be easily maneuvered into position; nowadays it is moved by hydraulics. It is regarded as one of the planet’s leading observatories, pioneering research into astrophysics and geosciences.
Address: Boulevard de l'Observatoire, Nice, Provence, France 06300, France
Hours: Wed, Sat–Sun at 2:45pm for guided tours

Itineraries Nice - The 3 peaks - 20km - 700mD +

This course is for experienced riders (715m of elevation gain!); in exchange it will bring you in a superb walk in the reliefs of Nice; you will pass in 90m from the sea at the top of the observatory, before going back down to the level of the old town and climb the hill of the castle. A big moment !
