There is a hiking route named after the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche in Eze, a picturesque hill-top village about 20 minutes from Nice. Nietzsche Path or Chemin de Nietzsche
runs from the seaside train station of Eze-sur-Mer to Eze Village which is at 400 meters above the sea level. The legend has it that Nietzsche, an avid hiker, formed key ideas about his Zarathustra
while walking along this path. Of course, nobody can say with any certainty that he actually hiked there.
When I was young, I read his books but I never finished them because my patience would usually run out halfway through. That was quite vexing to me because everybody seemed to say that Nietzsche was a "great" philosopher and I thought I would never discover "greatness" if I kept giving up reading him like this. I am now quite certain that I will never finish his books and, happily, that doesn't bother me anymore.
