There are a ton of trails throughout all of France but there is something special about the ones here for either the majestic views near historic fortresses or how one can hike along the sea and stop for a swim if you like.
This has to be one of the easiest hikes around but this still means to wear proper footwear, remember to take breaks, especially if you are new to hiking in the summer heat plus bring liquids and other refreshments to keep your energy up. Also don’t forget your mobile just in case of emergency.
You can either start this route in Villefranche-sur-Mer or from Cap de Nice. For this guide the start is in Cap de Nice. As you walk along Boulevard Maeterlinck from Nice above the sea, you will come across the Sentier Littoral sign just before the boulevard turns towards Villefranche-sur-Mer.
This is one of those trails that keeps you on the same path towards your destination, so there are no worries about it splintering off into an unknown area.
