footpath from Hopital Anglais to Villefranche

To Destination Expert Nice or other

Do you know if the above footpath is open now ?

Last year we treked round from Nice only to find it closed due to a rockfall.

Recently it was closed for maintenance but, in my opinion it is not nearly as a nice walk as going through the Parc Du Mont Boron, where you don't have to keep watching where you are putting your feet and has much better views..

Thank you Bob

we will certainly try Mt Boron. Which would be your prefered starting point from the harbour ?

Further to that which would be your recommended bar for a party of 6 seniors, all of whom like a drink ?

Bus #14 will bring you to Mont Boron. Get off at the last stop, from there there is an easy access to the top of the hill with beautiful panoramas, then you retrace your footsteps back to the bus stop and take a forest path through the park.

rambler,

I spent several hours yesterday working on detailed, illustrated instructions for the walk from the port to Villefranche then somehow failed to save them! Will do again sometime this week and, if you send me a private message with your email address, will let you have a copy.

I never much liked alcohol and gave up completely about 20 years ago, so don't know much about bars.

All the best,

Bob
