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...More

Just go across the street and turn right, you'll see a driveway/road heading up the hill with a sign on your left, past the gardening store and the Bananarie.

Can I take the bus #82 or 112 from Nice to Eze (village), walk down the path, and continue via train to Monaco? Is it easy to find the train station from the bottom of the trail?
