Hi Stu,
Did you walk down from Eze-le-Village to Eze-Bord-de-Mer or there is nothing special along the way and it is waste of time walking down to Eze-Bord-de-Mer?

We didn't take that walk. I read a trip report/post recently from someone who did - you might do a search to see if you can find it.

I hiked down the Nietzsche's path to Eze-Sur-Mer. It took about 45 minutes. You would want to wear a good pair of walking shoes as at least the half of the path is rough and sometimes quite steep. If you are a walker/hiker, you would enjoy it, walking with a great view.

Another time (last year) I arrived in the village in the afternoon (walked down for a little more than hour from La Turbie) and visited the top garden with tropical plants. There is a quiet corner with long chairs, where you can sit or even lie down for a while. Somebody above mentioned having a drink at the terrasse of Hotel Le Chèvre d'Or. That's what I did exactly. If you do it, get there for sunset. The view was really beautiful. The rosé champagne was €15 per glass but oh well, we were well served with nibbles in silverware and considering the time we had there. If you do this, forget the hike on the Nietzsche's path. Too dark for walk. We returned to Nice by bus.

Some photos from that time:
