The path starts at Eze-sur-Mer and is very handily by the train station that connects Monaco to Villefranche-sur-mer, Nice, Cannes or Monaco. The signpost states that it will take 1.5 hours but we found it an easy walk in 1 hour. The path is very easy to follow and doesn't require any equipment. It ends in atmospheric Eze. It's quite...

This is quite a manageable walk and definitely recommended so that you can enjoy the trip to Eze with this added perk--walking down to Eze-sur-mer and catching the transport back from there. It is rocky but, despite reports by some of scree, I didn't anything worrisome. Good shoes are great but going down is clearly quite do-able; going up would... More

We took the bus to Eze and then decided to take the Nietzsche path down to Eze-sur-mer, however I had on the wrong shoes so I found this a bit difficult, it is best down in trainers or walking shoes/boots.It starts gently at the top with "steps" zigzaging down but then some areas are slippy boulders and scree. I did... More

It's an amazing walk with beautiful vistas which open up as you twist and turn your way down the hill. It took us about an hour, so we had lunch by the sea and then went back up again. We took walking boots as I'd heard others recommend it. I'd second that advice - some parts are quite steep and... More

Agree with Sky21 (New York) i took the walk both ways and after my 45 min trip down took to the beach as a reward. feet dangling in the warm clear water with steam coming off them i loved the trip up and well worth it for the views once there. Thought the walk down would be a doddle but... More

We took the path from Eze village to the Eze train station as we. Used the bus to Monaco! The path was quite rough but worth it for the great views. We went downhill which made it easier. Would strongly advice appropriate footwear as the path is a bit rough. At a leisurely pace need to keep aside 45 -60... More

Decided to descend to Eze train station from Jardin castle.. Was difficult due to u level ground and rocks.. Luckily was wearing proper shoes.. Felt sorry for the poor souls climbing up oblivious to the difficulty.. Took about 45 min to descend, while going up would definitely take more.. The views on the way down really aren't worth it.. Running... More

the path is steep and rocky, the steps uneven and in places little more than rocky scree. A lot of the path is in deep woodland so there's not much of a view - but where it does open up the views are spectacular. Make sure to wear good walking shoes - this cannot be done in flip flops or... More

The path is said to take one hour on the way up and 45 minutes to walk down from Eze village. I did the descent and it really was almost exactly 45 minutes. The route is pretty obvious but there also are blazes of yellow paint on the rocks or stone walls from time to time to reassure you that... More

We were told to visit Eze so we took the train from Nice (15 minutes) and alighted at the station. We could not see what the fuss was about, a nice beach but as for the rest of the place it as dull as dishwater. Alas, the picturesque village is not near the station but is about 400m up an... More
