Eze, oh Eze, is another day trip I made from Nice. It’s situated between Nice and Monaco. Eze is a little village with stone walls, narrow cobbled streets and exotic shops. I was profoundly excited upon entering the village after the laborious hike up.
LOVE the clear crystal blue/ turquoise colours and white foamy waves! No other beaches I’ve been to can parallel with these colours. <3
Villefranche is an area between Nice and Eze. Bryce and I were sporting enough and too ambitious when we said we’d walk to Eze. After hiking up a park in Villefranche, we hopped on the next bus to Eze.
When you arrive in this quaint little hilltop village, do nothing but wander aimlessly around the little cobbled streets. Being a city girl, seeing these rustic classic stone buildings got me in seventh heaven.
Do they remind you of living in the Flintstones era?
Every corner, every little shop, every plant had something different to offer.
Fix your eyes at the point in the middle of the lady’s eyes for 30 seconds. Then, close your eyes. Who do you see? 😉
That’s the village on top of the hill all right.
Eze and Monaco are must-sees day trips if you ever visit the South of France!
How to go to Eze, France
From Nice, you can take bus 3 to Promenade Des Arts, outside Musée d’Art. Cross the road and the bus stop is on your right. Take bus 100 in the direction of Monaco. This bus drops at the base of the hill, so you’d have to hike up. Takes about 2 hours.
Alternatively, you can alight at Gare SNCF Eze and change to bus 83 to get to the top of the village.
I’ve heard bus 82/ 112 also goes direct from Gare Routière in Nice.
Transport cost: 1.50€ one-way
