Get the Randoxygene Pays Cotier book from the conseil general office (Office du Departement opposite Albert 1er Gardens roundabout in Nice). It gives walks near the coast. There are four or five books giving dozens of different walks of different grades.

Follow sparse signposting to Rocher des Monges for great viewpoint. Slight scrambling ability needed for last 10yds...

Next month the RandoBus starts and it will take you directly to the Mercantour to start walks from certain locations and then pick you up at the end of the day. Costs a few euros, return.
