We had a nice walk up from Eze Bord-de-mer to the village on top. We had our 5 and 8 year old children with us. The path is nice to walk, but do not use flip-flops. Also bring a lot of water when going up. At least during summer. The bottom part is a concrete path, but this changes to... More

Fabulous hike down to eze by the sea...eze by the sea by the way is where Bono and the edge from u2 have summer houses. Very steep and slippery. Wear good shoes, not flip flops, and do it early in the morning. It gets hot. There is a great he juice bar, La bananarie, at the bottom.

This is a beautiful hike. It is quite steep and good hiking shoes are a must. We love the views of the Mediterranean, and enjoy the quotes from Nietzsche on large poster type signs. We go slowly and very carefully, so it takes us about an hour and a quarter to go up, a little less going down. Of course... More

The little town of Eze-sur-Mer is, as the name shows, at sea level. The perched village of Eze is high above with panoramic views. Between the two is a steep pathway . The signs say it's an hour climb but it took me an hour and a half. And it was really worthwhile. Both buses and the train from Nice... More

It's quite a walk to reach here , but once you are there the view is amazing. However what I dint like was an entry fee being charged for this area. However it dint matter as from the top you could see Cost line of Nice, lovely yachts and the blue water :) It's worth the climb :)

I enjoyed the walk down from Eze. It is a busy trail and you pass many people coming up. The views are lovely and the path is rocky so watch your feet. (Trainers are essential although I saw lots of girls walking in ballet slipper type shoes). Take water. Half way down as I rounded a corner there was a... More

After the train, hang a right and be sure to stop at the juice bar! The hike is incredible, very scenic. Straight up but not too exhausting. Highly recommend! Bring water!

Wow - what a hike. Tips to the unwary - bring a hat, sunscreen and water. Amazing views. Much easier coming down than going up - but still have to be careful with steps! A good way to get to Eze if you decide to go by train and want some exercise

Unforgettable views during the Nietzsche path. It is sharply sloped, but it is extremely worth it; you will be catapultated in an another planet, stunning and different perspective over the Mediterrranean sea.
