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.

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!)
