A poet once wrote: "Èze has his feet in the Mediterranean, his head in the sky and the mountains for a crown. "You'll see for yourself... Considered as one of the most beautiful villages of the Alpes-Maritimes, the commune of Èze is one of the major and spectacular sights of the French Riviera because its territory is divided into three parts. First there is Èze sur la Grande Corniche: high perched above the Mediterranean at an altitude of 700 m, the site offers a splendid viewpoint and has a well-preserved omnipresent nature. Then there is the old village of Eze located at 429 m in eagle's nest on the Moyenne Corniche: its medieval streets exude a spirit of tradition and authenticity. Many craftsmen and artists now occupy the former ground floors and cellars that were once used as stables or sheepfolds. Since antiquity, the site of the village has been occupied several times: first by a Celto-Ligurian oppidum, then by the Phoenicians, Romans and Saracens before becoming a medieval stronghold deprived of its ramparts by Louis XIV who ordered its dismantling. You will have access to the old village through a double fortified gate dating from the 14th century. Finally, there is Èze by the sea, on the Basse Corniche, sheltered from the swell by Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, the place offers all the seaside pleasures.
