We decided to drive thru Eze on our way to Nice from Monte Carlo. It was a very pretty old world town with cobblestone and lots of stairs. Unfortunately we arrived shortly after a cruise ship did so we had to fight thru crowds of tourists. I even heard a guide shout to a group that they had "14 minutes"... More

What a shame this beautiful ancient village has, in essence, become little more than an endless series of art galleries, boutiques and restaurants. So hard to find its soul any more. And almost impossible to get a photograph without that being the focus. Perhaps it was just too close to Monaco to escape tha bling

The mediaeval village, above the Moyenne Corniche, is a tourist trap for good reason. The views are stunning and the narrow streets exude charm. We walked up from Eze station on the Chemin de Nietschke. It took about an hour but there was quite a bit of shade on the way at 9am. Stout shoes are needed though there was... More

A must see!! If you don't get parking at the entrance to the village, look for the additional parking area which has a free shuttle service to the entrance at the bottom of the village. The walk up to the village is fairly steep but easy with many view points and surprises as you go along. Explore all the little... More

From Nice take the 82 or 112 bus which takes you straight to Eze Village at the top of the mountain. If you get the 100 bus or the train you will need to walk up a steep path (rude de Nietzsche) taking approx 45 minutes to an hour). It was difficult to see much of the old town as... More

A plenty varied mound that has most of it's contemporary roots still embedded, opened it's way through winding stairways of worn stone. Old thrifty outlets are scattered on the trail, art places, gift shops and many statuettes of goddesses. Towards the top it's about €5 pp except children are free, below age 12 to access a pinnacle garden of cacti... More

Narrowed steep cobbled streets but this what makes the charm of Vieux Eze. Take your time to enjoy each twist and turn. It is not very stroller friendly or people with a walking handicap. People are extremely friendly compared to the big cities.

Amazing, the streets up to the garden and views are beautiful. Small, cobbled streets, lined with small shops, galleries and restaurants, its just a fantastic place to get lost in.
