I hiked up from Eze beach on a sunny day in early March. It was an excellent hike - not too strenuous if you stop to breath in the magnificent view along the way! It's got to be the best way to go to Eze Village, where you can sit in the garden to eat lunch and enjoy the wonderful... More

As others have mentioned, this is a somewhat steep and rocky trek with pretty awesome views. Here's what I'll add. I'm in decent shape, and I'd rate it at 3-3.5 / 5 for difficulty if you are climbing UP. It's not bad at all, but a steady ascent. Good to get the heart pumping! The sign says it takes an... More

We walked down hill from the town to the sea. The path is well signposted and easy to follow , there are some excellent viewpoints , remember to look back up the hill . There is a mixture of concrete steps, cobbles, loose pebbles and mud on the path , hence the need for sensible shoes . We met half... More

Beware of the track down the steep hill from Vieux Eze to Eze sur mer, I understand 400m or 1,300ft difference in height. It is steep, stony and rocky and rough. Sturdy shoes essential, and problematic for those not steady on their feet. It is supposed to take 45 or 50 mins. Our party took rather longer going down, given... More

We did not realize that this would be a part of our day. I only wore flats, but the trail is so easily navigated, it was not a problem at all. It was a highlight. A short swim in the ocean was a perfect ending. Catching the bus at the bottom of the hill was a cinch.

Nietzsche Path of Eze begins about 5 min walk from the train station and ends right near the Old Town of Eze and Le Jardin d'Eze. It's a relatively steep climb with various levels of difficulty that may take approximately 30 min. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes and be prepared! It's fascinating to walk there and imagine what Nietzsche... More

In spite of the difficulty my friends and I have read about this trail we still went for it. We chose to go up because it is easier on the knees although it is a challenge to ones cardio. We took Bus 100 at Nice and got off near the train station in Eze. We walk up a bit and... More

I am really glad we walked down (rather than just take the bus). It was pretty and nice exercise. Like everyone says, wear walking shoes and watch your step. My calves and hips were sore after. Like Nietzsche says, walking is good for thought!

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.
