I liked doing it on the way down to the see..it took us almost 45 minutes. You have to be careful, as there are many smooth stones that could be easily slippery, but it is lovely, peaceful in the middle of the nature.

I know it is rugged and a bit of a sweat but this is our second time in four years and the scenery on route and splendour at the top make the hike up definitely worthwhile. Yes be prepared with sturdy footwear and a water bottle. We are not young (mid sixty plus a bit) and we went up in... More

We recently went to Eze, taking the bus from Nice right up to the village, and spent a lovely couple of hours looking at the shops and exotic garden, and of course the spectacular views. We then saw a sign for this pathway down to Eze sur Mer saying it would take 40 minutes, and so, as the next bus... More

Well perhaps not quite the world, as it's an easy thirty-minute descent over a rocky path. Inspiring views on route and short wooded stretches as respite from the sun [in the summer]. perhaps the best thing about the walk is that you are free of the Village tourist scene within the first couple of minutes. We met a total of... More

I took the 8.45am bus from Pl Garibaldi in Nice and started walking up the Nietschke path about 9.15. It was beautiful, a real change from the urban 'hustle&bustle' of Nice. Easy to find (cross the road from Eze Gare, turn right and look for the sign) and follow, but as other reviewers say, steep and rocky. I was glad... More

Wow, this was hard. I'm in pretty good shape, but this was probably the most difficult physical activity I've yet done. Granted, I'm not a seasoned hiker or stair-climber. This kicked my butt. I felt pretty proud when I got to the top, but I ended up skipping a walk around the medieval town to return to my hotel room... More

We went to Eze in 2008 as part of a Cosmos tour and I guess we were taken there primarily to see the Fragonard Perfumerie at the base of the hill which meant we weren't told of the path from the car park up to the beautiful village. I imagine the purpose of the visit is for kick backs for... More

The walk up to Eze is beautiful! You follow a path, often with steps so there is no chance of getting lost. The views are more and more spectacular as you move up in the terrain. There are a lot of flowers, birds etc as well to enjoy. We spent 45 mins going up. Then we walked in a normal... More

Very easy to find from the train station and definitely worth the effort. Walked it in bare foot shoes designed for trail running and found it ok but it might be a bit tough in thinner soled variety as a few very pointy rocks. It was a little trickier coming down but that may be more to do with the... More
