Eze is a beautiful quaint little village they tell us was built by the Romans circa the 14th century. It appears to be have been literally carved out of the rock mountain. Access is by a narrow winding road that ends where the pedestrian red brick road into town begins. The road leads one through the streets lined with charming... More

Got the train to Monaco from nice (easy and pretty sights on route) Then on our way back we got the bus to Eze. You then have to get another bus to the village but it is well worth a visit. So pretty! Lovely little crafty shops, places to eat and drink. Helped we had sunshine but was a great... More

Small fortified village one hour from Nice. It is built on top of a mountain and if you have the energy to walk all the way to the top you will enjoy a beautiful view of the coat all the way to Nice. The top of the village is the Exotic Garden (small entrance fee) where the fort was originally... More

Eze is a very nice little town with loads of charm and great view over the sea. Loved the little streets and galleries!

If you ever wanted classical French scenery then go here. Great views in a small quaint location. Close to Nice, even closer to Monaco.

I strongly recommend to visit this amazing small village if you have a plan to visit to Cote dAzur (e,g,Nice Monaco etc). It is easy to get there by bus, or if you like hike, you can hike there for one hour and a half from train station(Eze bord de mer). I visited there by bus from Nice, and visited... More

Eze can be found easily between Nice and Monaco. It is small town with typical medieval old town of Europe. The view of from the town to the sea is amazing, but the best view is from the cactus garden on top. But be careful because it seems like a tourist trap where everything is so expensive here.

Eze was one of our favorite attractions in the south of France. We took the train to Eze-Bord-de-Mer then took bus 83 all the way up. The timing between the train and the bus worked out perfectly for us, although I'm sure a bit of a wait is more the norm. Hold on tight on the bus because there are... More

There was nothing to dislike about this location, unless you have mobility issues then it really is not suitable for you, but if you do, you are in for a treat. We went in January this year (2-5) and we took advantage of the cheap entry to the botanical gardens right at the top of the mountain before you reach... More

We went to Nice in Christmas holidays and struggled for time to cover our wish list. However Eze was in the first priority of our wish list, not only for nice view of sea but mainly for the ruins of its medieval château, narrow stoned lanes and had some medieval feeling and touching. We developed the following itinerary for our... More
