This is a path with a spectacular view on the sea and Eze village, but you should be aware that this is not a boulevard, and if you dont have a proper shoes I wouldn't recommend you go there it might be dangerous.

I walked up from the train station at Eze Bord du Mer. It's a short (1.2 mile) but strenuous (1300 foot elevation gain) walk. Great views of the coastline from along the trail. Wear good walking shoes and be careful as some of the steps are worn. I did the walk early in the morning (starting at 745am) which was... More

We walked down, it was a long way, more than a hour and we didnt find it a big deal. At certain points there was the tipical nice view but not all the way. We were a bit disapointed.

It is an uneven path, much like the streets of Eze. It goes a surprising long way a affords the hiker with wonderful views of the Mediterranean

We were totally unprepared for the trail- my wife wearing flip flops and her handbag, I had a nice white shirt, shorts and plimsoles! We went up the mountain starting at Gare d'Eze, lots of steep and uneven steps and it is a long trail, however the views and tranquility make it worthwhile. It took us an hour to ascend... More

Yes as an answer on whether to visit - if you are active, love hiking, don't mind mountaneous paths with no (I stress it!) no steps whatsoever. Just make sure you choose proper shoes and you won't regret the walk, since the scenery is great and you will feel rewarded at the end (even if breathless by that point!)

We only went on the downhill journey, which in heat, took an hour. You definitely need good footwear but it's very quiet - we only saw one other walker and he was going up-hill! We didn't want to do the return journey which would have taken 2 hours so we took the bus!

I hiked this trail just four days ago with my daughters aged 20 & 23.I'm in my fifties and I am physically fit but it was not easy! Non-stop steps up and up really got our heart rate pumping. We did the trail in an hour with a lot of sweating. If you want an extreme workout, this is great!... More

My husband hates waiting for and dealing with public transportation; plus, we are very active, so when we found out we could walk up to Eze village from where we were staying at the beach, we didn't think twice. The hike will definitely make you sweat, and you do have to watch your step at times, but this trail was... More
