This is a very scenic route above Cap d'Ail and Monaco combining two hikes: 1) Tête de Chien above Cap d'Ail with beautiful scenic views on the coast west (Towards Nice) and east (Monaco). 2) The Sentier Littoral of Cap d'Ail, easy and leisure walk along the sea from Monaco to Cap d'Ail. You can choose to do the whole hike or just portions of the hike. If can start the hike about half way through for just the Tête de Chien portion or just follow along the coast for the Sentier Littoral (Coastal Trail). Please note that the area between the two trails is not the most scenic, instead just walking along city roads.
