Eze is a medieval village perched like an eagles nest on a narrow rocky peak overlooking the Mediterranean sea. Eze is an ancient fortified village with the ruins of its 12th-century fortified castle still around. The setting on a craggy, rocky peak makes Eze a very picturesque destination and the climb to the top is worth every step since the coastal views are amazing!

The return drive will take you along the spectacular coastline Lower Corniche Road between Nice and Monaco, which harbors typical Mediterranean villages and modern marinas. A very special sight is the Bay and Citadel of Villefranche.
Interesting to know: The Corniche road refers to a road on the side of a cliff or mountain (from the French word for ledge). This is the case for the Riviera road where the ground rises from the Mediterranean and results in some amazing highway vistas.
