High atop a hill in Southern France lies the small city of Eze. There’s a ton of things to do in Eze, a once an old medieval village that’s full of boutique shops and tiny cobblestone streets. Visitors are not only taken back in time, but transformed into what feels like a dream – I mean, the views!
Even approaching Eze is picture-perfect! If you’re visiting Southern France, Eze is only a short drive, and very worth it. We were coming from Nice, and were so glad we included it on our must see list.
There’s a lot to do in Eze, from taking in the tiny, narrow streets (where no cars can go), to basking in the sights and the smells! There’s no driving once you’re in Eze – instead, this tiny town is made up of small cobblestone walkways! The number one thing to do? Get lost without a worry in the world.
Of course, aside from being home to a couple of luxury hotels, there’s a ton of unique shopping, breathtaking views, and amazing restaurants. Don’t miss out on the stores, and step into as many as you can!
When your feet are tired, park yourself on a bench, step, or restaurant, and take in the gorgeous views.
A side note, if someone could explain the golden goat to me, I’d be EVER so grateful! We could never figure it out! It’s funny, because a few weeks ago we saw a special on The Travel Channel and we recognized Eze from seeing this exact shot. What’s with the goat?!
If you’re looking for some activity, the exotic gardens are breathtaking, or if you’re in the mood for something a little more historic, check out the village’s church. The church of Eze Village is a neo-classical eighteenth century building, built on the foundations of a twelfth-century church. It was rebuilt, replacing the previous one that was in ruins, between 1764 and 1778 by the famous Italian architect, Antoine Spinelli. You may thank our guide for that quick history lesson.
I realize the picture below is totally random, but it reminded us so much of Davinci that we had to pause and snap away. Davinci assumes this exact position whenever he wants belly rubs!
I’m trying to find a good picture of Davinci in his belly rub position, and I can’t at the moment. Doesn’t that always happen? Anyway, this is the best I can do.
Meanwhile, back in Eze, the term shop ’til you drop has never been so true!
I was obsessed with these little doors that lead to mysterious places – they are all over the place!
It’s amazing how many restaurants can fit into this tiny cliffside town!
