This footpath connects Eze village with Eze -sur -mer, has sharp rocks, steep steps and takes about 1 hr hiking down so more to go up. There are no views as you are in forest until last 5 min. at the bottom. One definitely needs hiking boots. I saw a few others hiking up in regular shoes, felt bad that... More

Time estimates for this walk ranged between 1-1.5 hours. We're a family of 4 with an 11 and 9 year old, moderate fitness and we completed it in 45 mins (up) and 30 mins (down). It was dry and fairly cool (but sunny) as it was the end of Feb. I wouldn't attempt it on a hot day or when... More

My husband and I decided to walk this famous path since we didn't want to wait for the bus, and, before realizing why it was deemed so. Thankfully we had good footwear on, i.e. boots and tie ups. The walk was absolutely wonderful. As we progressed up the mountain trail, the surroundings, quiet and views were breathtaking, especially looking over... More

Nietzsche Path is a cactus garden with magnificent view. Price is 4-6€, depending on season. Take the climb, it's worth it if already visiting Eze Village.

We caught the bus from Nice to Eze, had a lovely lunch at L' Alchimie, explored the village and the cactus and sculpture garden and then walked down the hill via this path to Eze sur mer, where we were able to catch the train home again. It was a great downhill walk, that started on an easy path but... More

It's a wonderful walk from Eze Village to Eze Bord de Mer but is very steep so you need to be fit if walking up to Eze Village. There is a bus up to Eze Village so take the bus and then walk down!

I did this walk in the downwards direction in 1 hour 10 minutes, including water and photo breaks, and not hurrying at all. It was a pleasant sunny day in early October (probably about 25 C) and I was very glad of my hat and water bottle. I enjoyed the walk. It was quite peaceful with great views, after you... More

Be prepared to break a sweat if you start the walk from the bottom of Eze (train station). We took plenty of rest and got to the top in an hour. A great 1/2 day trip from Nice.
