A magnificent alley runs along the seaside to Lympia port. A water point allows you to quench your thirst or recharge your water bottle just before wearing. A few strides on the pier will give you a beautiful view of the castle hill. Failing to take Lou Passagin, a boat crossing the port basin, you will go around the lake to reach the Boulevard Franck Pilate, known for its famous restaurant La Réserve but also for the diving board of Brice de Nice. At the level of a park a staircase allows you to join the coastal path joining the Cap de Nice. The pleasure of running along the crystal clear water with a view of the Baie des Anges. Avoid the night place known to be poorly attended at late hours. Absolute danger in heavy seas which floods the path with its breaking waves. The path ends under the former Maeterlinck Palace. Impossible to go further even if a little before the end a steep staircase makes it possible to join the low cornice towards the Pointe des Sans Culottes, the bay of Villefranche sur Mer. The most courageous will continue towards Saint Jean Cap Ferrat and the magnificent customs path which surrounds it visible on our blog.
