Hiking Eze to Nice

Ok, another relatively short leg of "The Big Hike". This would take me from Eze to Nice, with a big detour out to Cape Ferrat.

The weather started out just fine, but clouded up towards the end. (sound familiar?)

Ok, if a set of stairs get their own name, you know it has got to be a doozy. This was to climb up to the pass between Villefranche and Nice IMG_5505.JPGIMG_5506.JPG
