Beautiful but don't visit on a Sunday

On Sundays 99% of the shops and galleries are closed, so it is better to go another day of the week. There is paid parking on the bottom of the hill.

Our tour guide Ingrid recommended us to visit this location as part of our private day tour, and we're so glad we listened to her advice. A small medieval village between Nice & Monaco, the village still retains its original look and feel, helped by its policy of no motor vehicles inside other than a single portable motor lift to...

Visited in May 2012 on day trip from Nice to Monaco. Very windy narrow streets leading uphill through the village of shops, a school, cafes, etc. It took us a little longer because school had let out and we got stuck behind the class for a while. Nice views of the Côte d'Azur from here.

It is a place with fantastic old buildings and walls high up over the newer town. In the old days it must have been very special. Today the place is full of galleries, souvenir shops, restaurants and cafes - and of tourists everywhere. It is a pity that such places are being spoiled - and there is nothing authentical left...

Pristine little village with fantastic views of the Cote d'Azure. So perfect it almost feels like a Disneyland village! Not worth more than a coup,e of hours including lunch.

We stopped with our tour group on the way to Nice. Eze was a lovely town. We were there at the end of the season, so some of the shops were closed. We did make some purchases in one of the shops and enjoyed wandering around the old town. The shops we saw that were open had some lovely merchandise.... More

We did Eze as part of a two-day stop on the French Riviera (staying in nearby Nice) before embarking on a river cruise with Brand g Vacations. (Brand g does fantastic all-gay charters on river ships.) From Nice, Eze and Monaco are a popular 9 or so hour day tour, which I highly recommend, because driving and parking in both... More

A very quaint medieval village. Park your car at the bottom of the hill and take a stroll in the meandering streets of that lovely location.

It will be a real toss up if someone asks me whether Eze or St. Paul de Vence is the prettiest cute thing in French Riviera. Plenty of photo opportunities in village while climbing gradually up. Make sure to visit Le Jardin exotique d'Eze for the best view. Tip: Taking bus 82 from Nice to Eze on scenic route is... More

The village has been preserved well. The buildings and narrow streets still have the feeling of an 12th century village. One needs to wear comfortable shoes to walk up and down the streets.
