I love the Nietzsche path. Eze can become a little overloaded with tourist, and taking the crowded bus is like being a sardine in a tin. It's so much more interesting to take the path from Eze-sur-Mer up to the top. The view is more rewarding after the hike. If you are in good to moderate shape I would highly... More

After walking about Eze-Le Village and the exotic gardens, we decided hike down the trail to Eze-Bord de Mer to catch the 100 Bus back to Nice. The trail is well maintained in spots but mostly requires careful attention to the loose rocks. The views on a sunny cloudless January day were breathtaking and we had the trail more or... More

Loved the walk along the Nietzsche path - take your time and venture down every little alley. Eze is a beautiful village to savour. It is an easy walk, but come early to avoid the crowds.

I've made it from Eze station up to the Eze village and it was the best way to start the day. The views are magnificent, smells of grass and flowers, an air so tasty... And you get rewarded with everuthing that Eze village has to offer at the end of your 40-min climb. Nice.

Nice climb from the train station to ancient Eze. Takes about 1,5-2 hrs. Path isnt in great condition, but the views along the way are worth it! Make sure you're wearing good shoes & bring some water on hot days!

This hike is not for the ill-equipped, unfit or faint of heart. It starts (or ends, depending upon your plans) at the Eze village (an ancient fortress and modern tourist trap) high above the sea on a coastal mountain and winds it way tortuously down more than a thousand feet to Eze sur Mer, at the Mediterranean's edge. You must... More

Very nice hike up to the medieval town of Eze. I got there early so i had the entire trail to myself so it was very peaceful. I highly recommend taking the trail. Make sure you wear good walking shoes and bring a bottle of water.

Very steep slope, you are afraid to fall. After Exotic Garden is not worth climbing. It's free attraction so you can start and if it's too hard to turn back.

My mum, aged 78, but fit, wanted to walk down from eze village to eze Sur mer. Big mistake!! Steep and uneven terrain made this rather challenging!! One hour and 40 minutes later.......! No harm done and absolutely beautiful scenery!
