Travelled to Rome, France, Italy etc as part of a cruise and this unique amazing stone village was by far our favourite. A quick bus ride (15mins at most) from the shore and you enter into this ancient feeling village. You walk up and up, shops carved into the stones, one tiny turn after another, it just keeps getting better.... More

A must if you enjoy small traditional villages in French Riveria. All the streets are for pedestrians (small alleys)only as compared to other villages sone streets are still accessible to vehicles. Do not miss the Mediterranean garden at top of the village. The 360 panoramic view from the top is breathtaking and beautiful. Remember to park your car at the... More

Èze is one of the most famous perched villages on the French Riviera. It's cute, picture postcard perfect and always full of tourists - even in February. So get up early, walk around for two hours or so and enjoy it before to many bus loads of tourists arrive. Caution, it's very hilly so older people probably tire quickly. My... More

This place rewards a slow exploration. From the moment you step through the gate, take time to enjoy the traffic free streets. Explore the artisans' shops, enjoy the bars and the restaurants; take in the views and stroll around leisurely. Wait a few moments for the people ahead to turn the corner and take your people-free photo to remind you... More

We've travelled quite a bit but never saw a place as unique as Eze! It's a stone city built into the side of a mountain. Just wandering around and climbing the steps is awesome.

Eze is a medieval village set on a hilltop some 430 metres above the Mediterranean Sea. Only 10 kilometres from Nice the town can be reached by public transport bus number 82 from the port area of Nice. The buses seem to leave about quarter past the hour every hour . The bus will take you to the tourist information... More

This medieval town is unusual. It is built on a high hill which looks like a cone. The town is built on the side of the hill on the way up to the top where the castle was located. The castle only has basic ruins left but the views from the top are incredible, 360 including the Mediterranean. There are... More

The village is absolutely beautiful. Wonderful to walk around in such a beautifully kept village. When we were there it was warm and sunny and so peaceful, not many people visiting and none of the restaurants or shops were open, but it was still worth seeing and I expect that it would be very busy in season!

What an interesting place. It is the real deal & the whole village is quite old. It was raining the day we went but we still managed to negotiate the village quite well. Just be a little bit careful as some of the pathways can be a little bit slippery when it rains. As we were there in the low... More

Why Eze is not on the "Les plus beaux villages de France" list is beyond us. Simply fantastic. Careful the streets are for pedestrians only, and can be a bit steep at times.
