This is a must see place to visit. It is a small town on the top of a hill with cobblestone streets, shops, cafes, and a lovely garden. No cars can travel through the town. It is all pedestrian traffic and you wind through mazes of streets. There are shops lining many of the streets and plenty of places to... More

Built on a hill, the medieval buildings circle round the hill creating narrow pathways. Spectacular place - go in the evening when the crowds quieten down and stay for dinner.

If the present structure of the village goes back (to) the Middle Age, Eze has been occupied from the Bronze age on. The Ligurians made a castellara out of Eze: it is a living place enclosed by huge rocks to protect men and cattle. Before the greek occupation, legend tells the phoeniciancs have built a temple to Isis. After the... More

Loved it. The whole atmosphere is unique. If you are going to Nice you must visit this village. The magnificent view through the Mediterranean is fabulous!

Village authentic unique and very charming, highly recommended especially if you are a couple. The old city is very romantic it is small you don't need a full day in it but my advice and if you can afford it spend the night in one of its small luxurious boutique hotels

Too crowded. Fully occupied by cafes, restaurants, hotels, shops to the point that you cannot get to the top of the village to get the main view without paying 6 euros for so called exotic garden that is not any better than any public flower bed that was replaced by cacti. Don't waste your time and if you want this... More

If you enjoy quaint, this is the epitome, in the historical sense. Wear comfortable shoes as the walks are uneven, but well worth the "hike" up the narrow passages. Its so amazing that ancient residents built and lived in this top of the mountain town, which is all rock.

We truly enjoyed meandering up and through the medival town of Eze to reach the top. The view is very pretty, and the walk through the town is fun because of all the little shops tucked away here and there, and the fantastic historical architecture. After the relaxing day of wandering and seeing pretty sites, we got to shop at... More

I've visited Eze in July. It was very crowded, you really couldn't walk at your own pace or take a good photo without bumping into another tourist. I can't say I was amazed by Eze, especially after visiting St Paul de Vence (another medieval village far more beautiful than this one). I must admit Eze is well preserved, and has... More

It was like travel back in time! Amazing views, narrow old streets, cafes, atmosphere – history around every corner. Come and see if you are around!
