  le Sentier Nietzsche
by MM212

Named after Friedrich Nietzsche, a 19th century German philosopher and writer, le Sentier Nietzsche is a steep hiking trail that links Èze-sur-mer with Èze Village 400 metres higher. It is said that Nietzsche hiked this very trail while he was contemplating some of his writings during his stay on the Côte d'Azur in the late 1800s. For the ambitious hikers among us, the long steep trail could be a fun challenge. It runs between Mediterranean shrubs and trees and takes 45 minutes to descend or 1.5 hours to climb!
