Eza, a charming medieval village is positioned between Monaco and Nice in the south of France.
What remains is a village with a series of shops, gardens and parks and all still with a fabulous view of the French Riviera. There are also historic remnants of formal settlers dating back to the Romans.
Along the way there are plenty of opportunities to stop and smell the roses.
Artisan shops are positioned throughout the journey offering handmade items for sale such as jewelry, belts, clothing, knives and one of a kind gifts all handcrafted by locals.
There are also eateries to nourish your soul, ranging from casual cafes to fine dining.
The church and its clock tower are also a photo opp with antique mementos adorning the walls of the church. Here there is a lovely park like courtyard where you can rest a while. As you make your way back down the mountain you will find outdoor vendors, one that is fascinating is a spice and salt vendor offering exotic combinations of ingredients from various parts of the world.
Once you arrive back to the base of the mountain there are still a wide array of businesses selling everything from local ceramics, fine art and fresh produce. Eze is a beautiful and scenic day trip that shouldn’t be missed when visiting the region. It takes one on a journey back in time when this road was less traveled.
