Eze, the town high above Beaulieu Sur Mer, and overlooking where we are staying at St Jean Cap Ferrat, is a trek that doesn’t align with its name. It’s views though are pretty stunning. And it’s also steeped (quite literally) in history.
The area surrounding Èze was first populated around 2000 BC as a commune near Mount Bastide. The area was subsequently occupied by not only the Romans but also the Moors who held the area for approximately 80 years until they were driven out by William of Provence in 973. Won’t bore you with too much detail but a check of the various Wiki sites and what we’ve hotlinked here, will show the historical importance of this region.
And now to the visuals.
