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

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
