Featured in the opening scene of Woody Allen's "Magic in the Moonlight," the Nice Observatory is part of the L'Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur. Built in 1879, it was designed by Charles Garnier with Gustave Eiffel doing the cupola over the telescope, which was the largest astronomical telescope in the world when it was installed. A mostly out-of-doors tour in French is given at 2:45 pm each Wednesday and Saturday with Friday tours during local school vacations. Admission: Adults 6 €, children over 6 and students 3 €. It can be reached by bus from the Nice-Riquier station.
