Nothing to dislike, this is a rough walkway but has incredible views. Sturdy footwear is essential. No need to walk back as there is a bus service back to Exe Village.

I really enjoyed this hike up from Eze-gare to the old village of Eze. It was written 60 minutes to walk up, but you can do it in a better time. It took me 40 minutes up and 25 minutes down. 400 metres height difference. Spectacular views on the sea fron this well-kept path. Some people walk with tongs, but... More

This is a great walk - up or down. It's steep in some parts and relentlessly down or uphill depending on where you start. From Eze Village, the trail is well marked. From the railway station at Eze sur Mer it's also easy to find - just west of the station off the road. My favourite part was the top... More

Enjoyed going down, walk on beach, and then back up this path - good for health - reasonably hot work in the heat of midday sun. Plenty of places to stop and take in the view. Also some shady parts to cool down. Some signs about Nietzsche (in French and English). Good shoes essential. Remember to say "Bonjour" to everyone... More

If you go upward, you will need to be in good shape. It is 1400 feet / 430 meters up at a fairly steep angle. It is not for the out-of-shape or faint-hearted. The trail starts 50 feet / 15 meters east and across the street by Villa Marguerite from the SNCF Eze-sur-Mer station / bus stops for bus 100... More

Take this path up to the village. It is all up hill but in three stages but doable in about 40-45 minutes. Hiking shoes are recommended and take some water. To return to the train station from the village take the Savaric Trail (yellow blazes) - it starts about 1 mile west of the village on the Moyene Corniche.

Unlike many of the reviewers, I took the path up to Eze Village and the bus back down to the train station, not wanting to aggravate my bad knees. I found it to be quite enjoyable. It is a bit steep and rocky in places, but if you are used to hiking it should pose no problems. I wasn't keeping... More

It is suggested it takes 40min to go down this famous path. It took me longer only because I stopped and took in what was around me. It's got a great energy doing this walk. Be prepared for the walk up or like me (take the bus!)

Amazing hike from Eze bord de mer to Eze village. Spectacular views. Don't do it after dark - some friends learnt the hard way!

We got the bus to Eze village from Nice; enjoyed the village, especially a drink at the hotel overlooking the bay and the Jardin Exotique. Then we walked down. I'm used to walking but my husband is less fit so we really took our time (1 hr 45 mins) with stops to admire the view both down to the sea... More
