A typical medieval French village with its special charm that needs to be experienced.
We went there on a sunny November morning and spent there half a day strolling through narrow streets, enjoying the views and the architecture, ate typical French crepes, explored tiny artisanal shops, and visited exotic garden with stunning views.
In my opinion half a day is more than enough to spend there and if you want to really enjoy the village with no hordes of tourists, go there very early in the morning.
At 9am we took bus 112 from Vauban station that brought us directly to the village. After spending several hours almost on our own there, we took Nitzsche path (count on one hour to get down) down to the sea and went to Monaco by bus 100. When we left the village it was already full of tourists and loud as hell ... and the medieval charm and serenity were gone...

What a fun old neighborhood or village! The entire village is constructed of stone, so it’s pretty, atmospheric, plenty of great south of France views, and charm to spare.

A lovely little jaunt with some stunning views and gardens. Access is ok by public transport from Nice but do some research first for timings as buses are hourly.

Our tour bus dropped us off down below and gave us two choices, hang around the lower level or close me up to the medieval town. We chose the climb. Got all the way up and back, exhausted but happy we did it. Beautiful place time forgot plus great views everywhere you look.

First of all don’t be confused by eze sur mer and Eze Village, the former is down by the sea and the latter is the the medieval village in the hills, it will take you an hour to make the steep climb from the seaside town, so do not take the number 100 bus that takes you to Monaco, take the 82 if you are coming from nice, get this from the bus station at Vauban, you can take this bus from stops in a more central location down by the port, but you are very much risking not getting on as our bus was full at the very first stop, as this bus only runs every hour, you can also take bus 112 from the same place.

Eze Village is very small and steep, lots of lovely little winding alleys with restaurants to sit at, and lots of boutiques and souvenir stores on the way to the top. At the top you will find the gardens with a €6 entry fee, this is where you get full panoramic views of the wonderful Côte d’Azur, well worth the walk up and entry fee, we then went for drinks at Château Eza, an amazing hotel perched right into the hillside, yes the drinks were very expensive at €30 for a glass of champagne but you don’t get that view everyday.

All in all I lovely little village that you can can easily manage from nice in half a day, the bus only takes about 20 mins back down to the port of 30 mins to Vauban.

We were lucky to find a parking spot! We started our climb up the street, and then up the mountain steps which first stops at "La Chevre d'or." This is a five star hotel, but they have signs warning anyone except guests not to enter.
We then continued up the steep, narrow mountain path which is paved with stones and bricks. There are all kinds of shops, boutiques and art galleries on the way up. The incline is very steep; they even have railings to hang on to. We went about 3/4 the way up, and gave up.
If you like mountain climbing, then this village is for you!

We enjoyed the mountaintop village of Eze. It is an amazing place with medieval
walls circling the village. Cute shops and restaurants can be found on the winding narrow streets of this village. Yes, it can become crowded. I suggest you get to the gate right when it opens. We had at least an hour with few people on the streets.

Eze is small but worth a visit, especially for those well travelled on the French Riviera.
The tiny village with its nooks and crannies is unique and picturesque at every turn.
You have to be in good physical shape to make the climb.

We took the train from Nice to the village of Eze, eventually caught the #83 bus up the hill to Vieux Eze, bought some perfume (Naturally), clambered around the village, visited the Garden at the top, ate a surprisingly good lunch, watched the tour groups... and then... took the #82 bus down the hill and caught the train continuing on to Monaco. I would agree that Eze is not totally unique, and is not an absolute MUST SEE.. but if you're touring the area anyway, and you like hill top villages with lovely sea views, this is worth the time. (One caveat: the #83 bus does not come very often or very punctually on Saturdays. We waited 20 minutes for the bus and when it came, there was no room for the last 10 hopeful passengers. We then waited almost another hour for the next bus. Many of the other passengers were impatient and ordered taxis and Ubers to take them up the hill. We decided we would save the money and just accept that although the wait was a bit frustrating, at least we were on the French Riviera!) We had some pastis and French cider at lunch, and after that.. we felt better about the whole thing. We enjoyed the view and the maze of shops/cafes/galleries very much.
