There's the short hike or the long hike each around different parts of the Cap, the shorter one better suited to a post lunch walk! The longer walk earn a bigger lunch! Either way the pats are well formed for the most part, views are gorgeous and unspoiled, the shorter walk isn't too hilly or strenuous either. One of the... More

Well worthwhile taking this beautiful scenic walk around the cap. The beautiful villa's and the lighthouse and the sea and rugged coast make for a very pleasant walk.

This walkway is simply gorgeous. We picked it up on one of several stays in Nice and lunched at the yacht harbor in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, France. It doesn't get any better. This is about the best you will find on the French part of the Riviera.

I recommend taking the walk/hike in autumn or spring as the route is exposed to the sun and gets pretty hot in summer. The route has been sanitised over the years and is very easy. The views though are lovely

We spent a whole day on this hike. We did the whole thing, along with a bit of shopping, eating and a beer or two. The sights were breathtaking.

The climb to this incredible cliff side botanic garden is exhausting but worth every step. It is beautiful beyond imagination. Amazingly the attraction can be reached by city bus from Nice. Loved it.

Enjoy the hike by the sea under the Mediterranean sun while enjoying the good view of the blue sea, boats and the houses on the cliffs. Simply amazing! Definitely something not to be missed when you're here.
