The Nice Observatory (Observatoire de Nice), but also known as the Cote d'Azur Observatory is an astronomical observatory in Nice on the summit of Mount Gros that was founded in 1879. The architect was Charles Garnier, and Gustave Eiffel designed the main dome. It is a working astrophysics and astronomy lab with several planet discoveries to its name. The 2-hour tour held here is in French only and takes place mostly on the outside of the observatory.
